Eagles LB Nigel Bradham Broke a Hotel Worker’s Nose Over an Umbrella
Last week, while enjoying his time at the beach before heading to training camp, Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham’s world turned upside down and it’ll probably get worse as he was arrested for an altercation that involved an umbrella at a hotel.
“According to a Miami Beach Police incident report, the 26-year-old was among a group of six people who started arguing with the employee over the time it took for the worker to bring them an umbrella they had paid for. The verbal argument escalated to a physical altercation.
The worker, 50-year-old Jean Courtois, told NBC 6 he needed a drill to fix the umbrella but apparently wasn’t moving fast enough for Bradham.
“I saw the drill, then I’m going to try to take the drill to come to fix the umbrella for them,” Courtois said. “He say ‘hey, I pay my money for me to set up for me to fix the chair for me. You don’t want to fix the umbrella for me.’ Then I say ‘ok, I’m going to try to take care of it for you.’ Then he hit me in my head.”
A glass bottle was allegedly broken over Courtois’ head, causing cuts and lacerations, including one to the back of his head, the incident report charges.
The six people then fled the scene, running toward Ocean Drive and entering a vehicle before speeding away, authorities said. A phone was discovered at the scene, which was turned over to police as evidence along with a receipt showing Bradham paid for the umbrella with his credit card.
Bradham turned himself in to Miami Beach police on Monday without incident and will probably be sued by the hotel worker at a later date.
