Attorney for Cowboys CB Marquez White Feels Charges Will Be Dropped

Cowboys cornerback Marquez White is facing a second-degree felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to Collin County court records.

But his attorney, Dallas-based Toby Shook, is confident the charge will be dropped, Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

“Marquez did everything legally,” Shook said. “He displayed a gun but didn’t point it at this individual because he was very concerned with how this individual was making threats. I’m hopeful that this case can be dismissed, because I don’t think he violated the law.”

The Cowboys do not have a comment “at this time.” An NFL spokesman has yet to return a request for comment.

White made a court appearance last week, and the next date is scheduled for Aug. 10, the day after the Cowboys’ preseason opener against the San Francisco 49ers.

Shook said the delay from when the incident happened, Oct.20, to the indictment, June 7, is unusual, but White had moved in that time and changed his number.

“There was a series in breakdown in communications,” Shook said. “He didn’t have notice that hearing was going on and was shocked to learn this warrant came out months later. It’s a bit unusual. It was an unfortunate series of miscommunication.”
