Former NFL defensive lineman Shane Burton got into some trouble at a bar in Burbank, California when he allegedly attacked a patron and a security guard in a drunken rage.
The attack just so happened to occur during Donald Trump’s victory speech, per TMZ, though it’s unclear if the two events are related.
“…according to law enforcement, Burton went berserk at Barney’s Beanery in Burbank just before midnight on Nov. 8th … allegedly pulling a man off a barstool and battering a security guard. “
According to the report, police found him outside the club a short time later. He initially refused to cooperate before finally being handcuffed and taken to a local jail.
Thankfully the damage allegedly inflicted by Burton was minor, as police say the alleged victims suffered “scratches, minor abrasions and a torn shirt.”
Burton played eight years in the NFL, spending time with the Miami Dolphins, Chicago Bears, New York Jets and Carolina Panthers. He reached Super Bowl XXXVIII with the Panthers, who were defeated by Tom Brady, Adam Vinatieri and the New England Patriots
