Former NBA Player Glen Rice Jr. Arrested For Punching Strip Club Bouncer After Complaining About Subpar Lap Dance
Former Washington Wizards SG/SF Glen Rice Jr. and son of NBA legend Glen Rice can’t seem to stay out of trouble.
Rice was apparently unhappy with the strippers inside a Miami strip club as well as the service, so he began throwing punches at a bouncer when they tried to calm him down.
“The son of a Miami Heat legend famous for making it rain three-pointers was arrested at a club famous for making it rain dollar bills.
Glen Rice Jr. was put in handcuffs at 1:15 a.m. on Tuesday morning. According to the exclusively-obtained arrest report, the incident started when Rice, 26, was unhappy with the service inside Tootsie’s Cabaret in Miami Gardens.
Police say a bouncer tried to calm Rice down and offered for him to speak to the club’s manager. Rice declined and somehow the situation escalated. At that point, Rice allegedly punched the bouncer in the face twice.
Rice claims he was set off because the bouncer said something about his sister. According to a written statement to police, the bouncer said Rice “demanded that he respected his sister, then punched him in his face.”
Subpar lap dances and disrespect to family will get you punched in the face in the Rice family.
Back in July, Rice was arrested for felony robbery, aggravated battery and possession of marijuana. Rice was a second round pick by the Philadelphia 76ers in 2013, but never played for the team.
