Bengals safety Marvin White was arrested on Thursday in Louisiana after an incident at his child’s daycare center.

Whit is charged with one count of simple assault and one count of disturbing the peace by loud and abusive language.

“Marvin White went to a local child care center to pay a bill for his child and he began to be verbally abusive to the management when the manager assumed he was boyfriend of the child’s mother,” St. Landry Parish Sheriff Bobby Guidroz said, per the Daily World. “They asked him to leave. He then made threats in front of the children and other adults there toward the management and made comments to his son’s grandmother, who was there to pick up the child.”

White was a fourth-round draft pick of the Bengals in 2007 and spent two years in Cincinnati. He was cut after training camp in 2009, played for both the Lions and Cowboys that year, and returned to the Bengals in 2010. He is set to be a free agent when the league year starts.
