Has Jerrell Powe issued a statement about the charges?

As per reports, Powe, along with suspect Gavin Bates, kidnapped a man and forced him to withdraw money. The call came in from a man at Chase Bank on Highland Colony Pkwy in Ridgeland.

The reports added that the victim is currently safe. With the authorities still investigating, one will have to wait for the hearing to get an update. Photos of both Powe and Bates were shared via the authorities, and were eventually shared online through news outlets.

That being said, further details on Powe’s attorney weren’t available.

Furthermore, the former NFL player is at the detention center without bond and will have to wait for a hearing before any further action or decision will be taken. The hearing will be in Ridgeland, which is 12 miles from Jackson, Mississippi.

Powe, who has been out of the league for years, has not issued a statement of his own.
