Roddy White's Cousin Ali Arrested For Armed Robbery, According To Report

Roddy White's cousin Ali White was arrested along with two others for armed robbery, according to the Gwinnett Daily Post. White, along with three others, allegedly broke into a Lawrenceville home on May 2 armed with a bat and a semi-automatic pistol, which the report helpfully describes as "black."

The group is accused of hitting a woman and beating her boyfriend, then making off with a $400 Bulavo watch. 

Ali White had been living with the Atlanta Falcons WR at one point, with his elder cousin looking to provide a home for some of his troubled family members in 2008:

They lived with my mom [in South Carolina]. Things weren't going real well. They needed someone who would always be there for them and I didn't think they were getting that. I wanted to take more responsibility and guide them in a family direction.

Mill's Creek football coach Jarvis Creek described the arrangement in the past tense to the Gwinnett Daily Post, so it doesn't sound like Ali is still living with his cousin.
