Cowboys running back Marion Barber was detained by the LAPD in front of a hotel in Beverly Hills, California for “disturbing the peace.”
Hotel security complained that Barber was being a disturbance and police were brought to the scene. Barber was placed in a cop car, but was not arrested.
This is not the kind of situation that a guy in Barber’s position wants to be involved in. His future with the Cowboys was already in doubt by some and this negative attention could be the last straw. Barber has been an unproductive back and can be easily replaced by the duo of Tashard Choice and Felix Jones.
