WGR 550: Bills' Whitner expects charges to be dropped

New, comments

Greg Bausch of WGR 550 is reporting that Buffalo Bills safety Donte Whitner expects charges stemming from an April arrest to be dropped.

Whitner will appear in a Cleveland court on Tuesday in relation to aggravated disorderly conduct and resisting police charges.  Buffalo's third-year safety received the charges after an April 10 arrest outside of a House of Blues in Cleveland, Ohio.  During the incident, Whitner was subdued via taser and has repeatedly proclaimed his innocence in the subsequent month.

WGR 550 had this quote to offer from Whitner, speaking to the media Monday from day one of the Bills' Organized Team Activities:

"Hopefully, everything is dropped tomorrow. That's what my lawyer is telling me. As my side of the story, I assure everyone that I didn't do anything wrong. Anybody that knows me, what type of guy I am and what type of things I stand by, knows that I didn't do anything wrong. We have a video tape of the whole incident. Hopefully, we're going to get it all taken care of (Tuesday)."

Whitner also claims that once the legal process runs its course, he will tell his side of the story:

"I think I'll wait for it to be settled in court before I tell my side of the story. But I will tell my side of the story once it is settled in a court of law. We expect it to be dropped and hopefully, it's dropped (Tuesday)."
