Free agent S Marvin White has denied making threats and being verbally abusive toward management at his child's day care center on Thursday.
"I didn’t make any threats while I was present at my children’s daycare," White said in a statement released to Pro Football Talk. "I am looking forward to putting this situation behind me." The situation has yet to be resolved legally, but doesn't seem major enough to warrant a suspension this season. Sun, Jul 17, 2011 12:34:00 PM

Free agent S Marvin White was arrested and charged with simple assault and disturbing the peace by loud and abusive language on Thursday in Opelousas, La.

At a day care center to pick up his child, White reportedly became "verbally abusive to the management when the manager assumed he was boyfriend of (his) child's mother," according to St. Landry Parish Sheriff Bobby Guidroz. When asked to leave, "he then made threats in front of the children and other adults," and was ultimately arrested. A four-year veteran, White made just one tackle in three games for the Bengals last season.

Bengals signed S Marvin White, formerly of the Lions.

You know it's bad when you're picking up scraps that the Lions' lowly secondary left behind. White was drafted by the Bengals in 2007, but tore his ACL and bounced between the Lions and Cowboys last season. He'll be a deep reserve in Cincy, even with Gibril Wilson's season-ending knee injury.

Lions waived S Marvin White.

White's relatively pricey $1.01 million salary was working against him, but he's not been the same since tearing his ACL with the Bengals. The former fourth-round pick could resurface elsewhere as a kick coverage specialist.

Cowboys waived S Marvin White.

The Cowboys made the move so RB Chauncey Washington could be signed off the practice squad. It's a sign that the team is at least a little concerned that Marion Barber's quad will be a factor in Sunday's game against the Broncos. Felix Jones (knee) is out.
