Took 5 Cop Cars & 2 Hours to Get Ex-Cowboys Marion Barber to Mental Hospital

Marion Barber Arrested

Still no exact word on why it was necessary to have this many police to talk to Marion Barber. It was obviously a serious situation, but thankfully it appears nothing bad happened to Barber.

Five marked police cars responded to the scene where former NFL star Marion Barber was arrested Sunday.

Witnesses tell us … when cops arrived to the scene, they spoke with Barber for roughly 2 hours before he was handcuffed and placed into a squad car.

We’re told people who watched the situation unfold from a nearby restaurant applauded and cheered when cops finally brought the situation to a close.

Hopefully, whatever helps Barber needs he is getting now.
