    According to the website, White’s agent, Kevin Conner released the following statement on White’s behalf.

    “I would like to sincerely apologize for the recent unfortunate situation.  I have never been arrested during my career in the NFL.  I didn’t make any threats while I was present at my children’s daycare.  I have been there on numerous occasions and several autographed photos of myself with my kids are present.  In addition, I have been invited by management to engage kids and parents through positive interaction and school activities.  I am looking forward to putting this situation behind me.”
