The lawyer for Ravens rookie cornerback Marlon Humphrey, who has been charged with taking a $15 phone charger from an Uber driver in Alabama, said Thursday night that he believes the robbery case will be dismissed.

The Uber driver alleges that Humphrey refused to return the cable and grabbed several other cables from the vehicle. Per the police report, Humphrey also elbowed the driver aside.

Humphrey’s attorney, Paul Patterson, disputed the driver’s allegations in the incident report and said, “Marlon has 11 million reasons not to steal a … phone charger.”

Patterson expressed confidence that the case will ultimately be dismissed.

There will be a preliminary hearing for the case on March 1 at 2 p.m. in Tuscaloosa County District Court. The judge will hear evidence and determine if the case goes forward.
