The Jacksonville Jaguars 2018 season has just gone from bad to worse.
After dropping their third game in a row at home against the Houston Texans, the Jags headed across to pond to face the Philadelphia Eagles in London, but some of the team might be not be available for the game.
According to Sun UK, a couple of Jags players ran into some trouble while at the club and it led to them being arrested.
“American football stars were involved in a nightclub brawl over a £50,000 bar bill. The four Jacksonville Jaguars players were arrested by cops at 4am.
Trouble flared after they were accused of trying to leave the London Reign Showclub without paying their tab yesterday. The players, who earn an average of £43,000 a week, squared up to bouncers outside the nightspot.
A source said “It was the West End equivalent of King Kong meeting Godzilla.”
The Jaguars are in the capital for an NFL match against Philadelphia Eagles at Wembley today. A group of players and staff attended the private members club, which features burlesque and circus performers.
The source went on: “The total bill was in the region of £50,000 and some of the lads tried to leave the club but were prevented from doing so by security.
“Things got pretty heated and there was a lot of swearing and shouting and things became physical. In terms of preparation for their match, you couldn’t think of anything worse.”
Four men in their 20s were arrested for fraud by the Met Police. They were released after nine hours in custody. It is understood the club dropped the complaint after the bill was settled.”
The four players that have been rumored to have been arrested were Barry Church, DJ Hayden, Ronnie Harrison and Jarrod Wilson.
