Marion Barber III was detained at a Beverly Hills hotel earlier today. According to TMZ.com, Marion Barber III wasn’t arrested after he agreed to leave the hotel. Why was the running back for the Dallas Cowboys in Beverly Hills’ SLS Hotel? A good guess would be the 2011 NBA All-Star Game, which was played on Sunday in Los Angeles.
The Cowboys may use this is an excuse to release him. 2010 was a very bad year for the Cowboys and Barber. In 13 games, Barber had only 374 yards and averaged just 3.3 yards per carry.
Marion Barber III is the son of Marion Barber, Jr., who played running back for the New York Jets, and the brother of Dominique Barber, a safety for the Houston Texans.
