Ex-Buffalo Bills stud Roscoe Parrish was shocked to learn he had warrants out for his arrest during a traffic stop last month … telling cops, "I live a clean life. I played in the NFL!"
The 37-year-old former receiver was busted for a routine traffic violation on Aug. 12 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida … when cops realized he had two serious warrants out for his arrest.
One was for stalking, while the other was for writing a threat to kill … but you can see on the arrest video, obtained by TMZ Sports, Parrish is floored when cops tell him the news.
"I'm retired," Parrish says. "I live a clean life … I played in the NFL!"
"No sh*t?!" one officer responds. "Who'd you play for?"
"Buffalo Bills and I went to the University of Miami!"
Cops continue to question him about the warrants throughout the stop … but Parrish says he has no idea what they stem from, saying, "I'm, like, literally confused!"
Turns out, according to court docs, Parrish's ex-girlfriend alleges the 5-foot-9, 175-pound ex-NFL player wrote several threatening messages to her … including a note that said, "You b*tches don't listen oh and make sure you tell your ugly a** daughter to watch out im commig for her haha, from your ex."
Parrish's ex-GF also alleges another note read, "Ima kill your stupid a** daughter."
Cops say they tried to serve Parrish with a restraining order, but when they received no answer at his door … they requested the arrest warrants.
In the traffic stop — Parrish, who couldn't have been more cooperative with officers — was asked if he had any sort of dispute with a girl or girlfriend … and he replied, "No! No!"
Parrish — who was a 2nd-round pick of the Buffalo Bills in the 2005 NFL Draft — is due in court later this month to face the two felony charges.
