Charges dropped against Donte Whitner

Last April, Bills safety Donte Whitner was arrested in Cleveland for aggravated disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

His apprehension included the use of a Taser gun, which prompted Whitner at one point to threaten to file a lawsuit.

Now, the matter is closed.

According to the Buffalo News, the charges were dropped after Whitner completed a “selective intervention program,” which required him to meet with a probation officer over the past three months.

The outcome, though favorable to Whitner from the perspective of the criminal justice system, likely will subject him to scrutiny under the Personal Conduct Policy, since enrollment in a program of this nature still falls within the broad definition of the term “disposition of a criminal proceeding” under the policy.
