Cleveland police confirmed to Buffalo, N.Y., television station WIVB that Bills DB Donte Whitner was tasered and arrested on suspicion of aggravated disorderly conduct and resisting arrest early Saturday morning:
Police in Cleveland say they were outside the House of Blues attempting to quell a near riot. Whitner allegedly attempted (to) enter an area where numerous fights were occurring. Officers say that he began swinging his arms in a violent manner when police tried to restrain him, then broke free and took a fighting stance. Officials say an officer had to deploy his taser so that officers could put Whitner in handcuffs.
Whitner, who started 13 games for Buffalo in 2008, is the third Bills player — RB Marshawn Lynch and DB
Ko Simpson are the others — to be arrested this offseason. Whitner hasn’t been charged, according to WIVB.
