After being arrested for stealing a $15 phone charger from an Uber driver and facing a charge of third-degree robbery, Marlon Humphrey’s lawyer, Paul Patterson, believes the case will be dismissed.
Reported by Baltimoresun.com’s Edward Lee and Jeff Zrebiec, Patterson said, “Marlon has 11 million reasons not to steal a … phone charger.”
“Marlon has not had an opportunity to tell his side of the story,” he added. “The Uber driver makes a lot of allegations in that report that simply are not true. Fortunately for Marlon, we have eyewitnesses who are willing to testify about what accurately transpired between Marlon and the Uber driver.”
Patterson went on to say, “we intend on asking for a preliminary hearing to determine if probable cause has been established to continue forward,” “The future looks bright for Marlon in this incident, and I would hope to have this matter resolved in the next few months.”
The Ravens official statement issued on the incident is as follows, “Marlon told us that it was a misunderstanding regarding a $15 telephone charger, which he thought was his. Our understanding is that he has been interviewed by University of Alabama Police and is cooperating. We are monitoring the situation.”
“It’s a sad event because the Humphrey family has a fine reputation in our community and now Marlon will be challenged with repairing his reputation even though it was a simple mistake,” Patterson added.
