Former Falcons football player Roddy White recently received two traffic tickets just this past Wednesday after he claims that he was pulled over by local East Atlanta police officers. One of the tickets was allegedly for speeding and the other was for expired tags. However, the tickets aren’t why the wide receiver is angry about the encounter.

White, 35, who is now a free agent after the Falcons let him go back in March of this year, claimed that he now plans to report a DeKalb County officer who, according to him, unnecessarily grabbed his gun as he’d proceeded to approach White’s vehicle.

Taking to his social media accounts, here is what White claimed took place on that Wednesday afternoon:
