Just when you thought you had heard it all, this happens.

Marlon Humphrey is a football player for the Baltimore Ravens. But, since he’s not playing football right now, Humphrey decided to go back to his home state of Alabama; where, things went a but awry.

According to Yahoo!:

Humphrey was booked on a felony charge of third-degree robbery, which applies when use of force or threats of force is involved, on Thursday morning and the arrest is related to an incident in Tuscaloosa on January 13.

Stephanie Taylor of TuscaloosaNews.com reports, via an incident report from University of Alabama police, that Humphrey and three others were in an Uber to a hotel and Humphrey asked the driver to borrow his phone charger. When the vehicle arrived at the destination, Humphrey allegedly refused to return the charger and took other cables from the car. The driver told police that Humphrey elbowed him when he tried to recover the property. Officers responding to the call found Humphrey in the hotel with a cable that he said was his, but it did not fit his phone.

Ravens Owner Steve Bisciotti released a statement making it clear that he was aware of the incident.

“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.”

Humphrey was a first-round draft pick for Baltimore, he made over $2.1 million in his rookie season, and is set to make nearly $2.7 in 2018. One would think, he’ll be able to go out and get a good charger.
