London Police Detain 4 NFL Players For Skipping Bar Tab, Fighting Bouncers

Four Jacksonville Jaguars were arrested after they allegedly skipped out on a $64,000 bar tab at a private London club.

London, England – Four Jacksonville Jaguars players were arrested on Saturday after they allegedly tried to leave a London night club without paying their $64,000 tab.

The Jaguars were in London for a regular season National Football League (NFL) game against the Philadelphia Eagles at Wembley.

The night before the big game, a group of Jaguars players and staff went to a private members club that featured burlesque and circus performers, according to The Sun.

The players drank champagne that cost $577 a bottle, according to The Sun.

The players later said they believed the expensive drinks had been given to them for free by the club, according to NFL.com.

When the bill arrived around 4 a.m., the football players refused to pay it, and an argument ensued.

Club security stopped the four players from leaving and police responded to the club for a report of a fight, according to the BBC.

The Sun reported that the players fought with club bouncers outside The London Reign Showclub

“It was the West End equivalent of King Kong meeting Godzilla,” one witness told The Sun.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport identified defensive backs Barry Church, Ronnie Harrison, D.J. Hayden, and Jarrod Wilson as the players involved in the scuffle.

All four players were taken to a police station for questioning, according to BBC.

Eventually, the players were released, and the bill was settled.

The Jaguars signed Wilson to a three-year, $1.6 million contract in 2016, and Church to a four-year, $26 million contract in 2017, according to Spotrac.

Harrison signed a four-year, $3.4 million contract, and Hayden signed a whopping three-year, $19 million contract with the Jaguars in 2018.

Jaguar players Telvin Smith, Myles Jack, Leon Jacobs, Dante Fowler, and T.J. Yeldon were also at the club for the party on Saturday night, but were not detained, the NFL Network reported.

The Jacksonville Jaguars management released a statement on Sunday.

"We are aware that 4 of our players were detained over restitution of a bill," the statement said. "The matter is being resolved and the players are with the team. Any discipline will be handled internally."

The Eagles beat the Jaguars 24 to 18 on Sunday, only a few hours after the team members were released from police custody.

Coaches chose not to sit out any of the healthy players who allegedly participated in the fight, CBS Sports reported.

The Jaguars made the news a year ago in London for kneeling during the "Star Spangled Banner" but standing for ”God Save The Queen.”

After international backlash, the team's president apologized saying the team was ”remiss in not fully comprehending the effect of the national anthem demonstration on foreign soil has had on the men and women who have or continue to serve our country.”

what do their contracts state about situations like this? Do they lose their money if kicked off team for unlawful behavior?

These arrogant self centered punk thugs are typical of today's NFL & NBA players. They feel entitled to anything they want and they have no regard for the. law or the poor image they show kids. This is why I stopped watching pro sports several years ago. I won't contribute one penny towards their ridiculous salary or applaud their over inflated egos!

Why do we see so so many black faces who are just plain and simple out of control in these crime stories? This BM demographic ( ages 12 to 45) makes up just about 5% of the total 12% US black population yet are ~60 -70%+ of the representation in stories such as this one ......So everyone else is prejudice towards them ,huh? and that's why they act so poorly?...

....or is it really just due to a truly dysfunctional messed up black culture and abysmal personal behaviors coming from predominantly black men and which are now seen on an almost daily basis?

Nothing paints as good a picture of Americans overseas as a bunch of spoiled assholes trying to skip out on a bar tab. Of course, their coaches played them. They aren't any better than their trashiest player. Should have packed them all up, shipped their thieving butts back to the US, and dealt with them later.

Oh another NFL story, typical. I guess this story deserves more attention than a crazed WHITE gunmen killing 11 people in a heinous hate crime and wounded 4 police officers.... I guess WHITE perpetratred hates crimes aren't reported here, even when Police Officers are wounded. The work of these officers won't be reported. I guess Blue Lives DONT Matter in this case, don't they!!!???

So is drinking the night before a game a common occurrence? Glad to hear that they lost. These guys think just because they make millions that they can do whatever they want. Thinking that all that expensive champagne was free just shows how intelligent they really are. They were probably "passed" through each grade in school just because of their ability to play a child's game. They didn't learn anything about anything.

These players should be arrested and detained in London. Then fined by the league big time. I thought the goal for playing NFL games in the UK was to bring the game over there in a positive manner. Not have players steal from a bar because they believe they are entitled. Suspend these players too.

More comments on this article than the ones about the three racial terrorist attacks committed by conservatives last week.

I wonder who the Brits hold more in contempt? Rich people skipping a bar tab, or racialized terrorism?

Amazing how these ignorant losers represent and disrespect the Black community. All blacks should be "so proud", dem boys just doing what they do. They should be removed from all/any participation in sporting events at home or abroad. NOT what I would want representing me if I too were black

Hey dumb ass guess what? If you factor in the percentage of blacks vs/ whites in this country, guess what? Blacks commit more MASS SHOOTINGS ALSO than whites. It's not fair to claim one race does more than another going strictly by number of incidents when you don't take into account 63% here are whites and only 13% are blacks. If you have any basic math skills even you can figure it out. Between 1982 and 2018 whites did 59 mass shootings and blacks were second place with 17. And I'm sure they are not even counting the drive by shootings done by gang members on a regular basis, like you know when 4 or 5 people get shot and killed in a single day by one shooting? So lets do some simple math you little tick turd. 328,000,000+ people roughly in the US. 63% white, = 206,640,000 & 13% black = 42,640,000. Now that means there are about 4.8 times as many whites here than blacks. Stay with me, I know by this point your head might start hurting trying to do math after blazing up. Take some Advil if you need to and come right back here. So 59 / 17 = only 3.4 not 4.8 so that gap is how much more likely a black person will commit a mass shooting if there were equal to whites in population. I am afraid that one day their 13% will get much higher than that - what will the crime stats be then?

You keep crying about whites and mass shootings, its the same as bringing up the statistic that men are more likely to be involved in a fatal workplace accident than women but there are still more men in the workplace to begin with. And much more performing very dangerous work (like police work and military)

Money becomes novacain for the brain! Paying over $500 for a bottle you could buy for $80 at the store is stupid to begin with, and to think they are going to give you that for free is fucking dumb! You are rich and this is how they get rich!! from rich idiots!

Det_John_Kimble " It's not fair to claim one race does more than another going strictly by number of incidents when you don't take into account 63% here are whites and only 13% are blacks".

Hello Det_John - Realize the ignorance and personal anti white agenda you are dealing with regarding LOW_EST IQ . He already knows what you have described but it doesn't suit his anti white, anti cop agenda. What you mention is even actually worse.... when you consider that this BM demographic ( ages 12 to 45) makes up just about 5% (of the total 13% US black population) yet are ~60 -70%+ of the representation in stories such as this one and of course further represented in our courts, jails, probation, paroles, arrests, etc. Despite any deflecting liberal propaganda to the contrary they cannot explain it all away due to other reasons vs. abysmal personal behaviors and a demented culture adopted by blacks.
