Garrett Wolfe’s troubles in Miami that led to his arrest on multiple counts including assaulting an officer all started over a few bottle of champagne and a $1572 bar tab. This from the Sun Times:
Wolfe, who has been primarily a special-teams player for the Bears for the last four years, allegedly became aggressive while disputing the purchase of three bottles of champagne at Cameo Nightclub in Miami Beach. He was removed forcefully from the club, causing business to stop and patrons to leave, according to the report released by Miami Beach Police.
Once outside, Wolfe was initially restrained before being released to settle his bill. Then Wolfe allegedly lunged at an off-duty police officer, prompting a scuffle that resulted in Wolfe and two off-duty officers sustaining abrasions before Wolfe was handcuffed, according to the report.
Wolfe, who officers said smelled of alcohol, had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech, threatened to sue the officers and at one point said: “Let’s compare bank accounts.”
Did he really pull the bank account line on the coppers? Seriously? Come on kid! Next time he should leave the champagne orders to former teammate Julius Peppers.
