Desmond Marrow a former NFL cornerback had a tooth knocked out and was choked by police, and now justice will be served to the former police officer.

A former Georgia police officer who was caught on camera choking former NFL player Desmond Marrow during a 2017 arrest is now facing charges.


Former Henry County police officer David Rose has been charged with simple battery as a result of the controversial arrest in the parking lot of a Target in 2017.


Marrow, who attended the University of Toledo and played briefly in the NFL for the Houston Texans and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, said one of his teeth was knocked out and he was choked until he was unconscious during the arrest.

The situation started after police said Marrow was involved in a road rage incident with two men after he allegedly threw a coffee cup at their vehicle. They thought Marrow had a weapon but he only had a cell-phone on him.
