DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – A Dallas Cowboys player faces a felony charge after what appears to be a road rage incident in Collin County.
Cornerback Marquez White, 23, was indicted June 7 on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Police records show the incident happened last October on Dallas Parkway between Tennyson Parkway and Legacy Drive.
Details of the incident were unclear.
In a statement to his hometown newspaper, the Dothan Eagle, Marquez wrote, “Me and my legal team believe strongly that this is a personal attack on my image as well as the star.”
He told the paper, a driver became angry with White as he drove home in October. White says he pulled a handgun when the motorist appeared to be reaching for his own. He says the other driver followed him home and yelled racial slurs at him.
The investigation is ongoing.
White played at Florida State before being drafted by the Cowboys.
He spent his rookie year on the practice squad.
