Vontaze Burfict just wanted some pizza while in Las Vegas back in December. It wasn’t just any pizza, but a secret pizza that is hidden in a corner of Vegas’ Cosmopolitan.
The former Cincinnati Bengals linebacker, who earned a reputation and several suspensions for dirty hits on the field, was arrested after he reportedly accused casino security of following him and his friends as they looked for it and a physical altercation kicked off.
TMZ has since dropped the footage of that night and Burfict was certainly emotional throughout.
Burfict is so big that more than half a dozen cops had to pin him down and place him in handcuffs.
“But, Burfict sounded so upset over the tightness of the cuffs … he moaned in apparent pain and yelled, “I can’t breathe!”
Eventually, the 30-year-old football player was taken outside to a squad car … and the police footage shows he was still VERY emotional there, too.
Burfict could be seen sobbing, all while begging cops to loosen his cuffs.”
Last week, Burfict struck a deal with prosecutors to close out the case. He agreed to stay out of trouble and the charges would be dropped.
After sitting out the 2020 season, he is still hoping to sign with a team for the upcoming 2021 season.
By the way, here was that pizza place he was looking for:
