Bengals Rookie Corey Tindal Pistol-Whipped & Robbed During Motel Poker Game
Cincinnati Bengals rookie defensive back Corey Tindal was a victim in an armed robbery on Monday in Huntington, West Virginia, according to the Herald-Dispatch.
“HUNTINGTON – Former Marshall University cornerback and current Cincinnati Bengal player Corey Tindal was named as a victim in an armed robbery early Monday morning at a local hotel where more than $4,000 in cash and merchandise was stolen, according to an incident report from the Cabell County Sheriff’s Office.
Tindal, of Florida, and a man he knew were playing poker at a Super 8 Motel in the 3000 block of 16th Street with two men known only by nicknames around 1 a.m. when one of the unknown men pointed a semi-automatic pistol at the victims, telling them to “Lay down and give me all the money,” the report states.
The man then hit Tindal twice on the top of his head with the barrel of the pistol and again asked the victims to hand over all the money and not move.
The incident report said the suspects fled the area with $2,400 cash, three cell phones worth $1,600 total and a set of rental car keys.”
This wasn’t the first time they played cards with the suspects, so apparently they figured out who he was and set him up to be robbed the next time they got together.
