Nigel Bradham arrested for assaulting hotel worker
Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham was spending a little time at the beach in Miami before heading up to Eagles camp, but his trip took a turn for the worse last week.
NBC Miami reports that Bradham turned himself in to Miami Beach police on Monday as a result of an incident that took place on the beach last Thursday. Per the report, Bradham was part of a group of six people who got angry at an employee of the Hilton Bentley because they believed it was taking too long for him to bring the umbrella they had paid for.
A verbal argument allegedly escalated to a physical altercation that featured a glass bottle being broken over the employee’s head. The victim allegedly suffered cuts as a result and the group left, although Bradham was identified off a receipt as he had paid for the umbrella with his credit card.
Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports that Bradham is expected to report to Eagles camp on Wednesday.
The Eagles issued a statement on Tuesday saying that they are aware of the incident and have spoken to Bradham “and the proper authorities.” Bradham signed with the Eagles as a free agent this offseason after spending four years with the Bills, who have their own experience with arguments over beach accessories turning into matters for law enforcement.
