Michael "White Mike" McArdle is a fictional character on HBO drama The Wire, portrayed by Brook Yeaton.
White Mike is a mid-level South Baltimore drug dealer from Curtis Bay with his own territory. He supplied Ziggy Sobotka with packages of narcotics to distribute but their relationship soured when Ziggy failed to make adequate profit from the package. He is one of several characters in The Wire who are fond of strawberry soda. McArdle was supplied by The Greek's smuggling operation and was arrested as part of an investigation into that operation. He was quick to turn against his suppliers and gave up all the information he had.
McNulty's last name was originally McArdle, according to a draft of the pilot script. Brook Yeaton is also an on set dresser for the show.
