New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker and six of his buddies saw an unofficial bachelor party in Aspen, Colo. go very wrong.
The group tussled with security when they tried to enter an event Friday night at Above the Salt restaurant, part of the weekend's 30th annual Aspen Food & Wine Classic.
Sources told the New York Post that Welker strolled up to the bash and tried to enter without checking in with party staffers. The group grappled with security when it was refused admission. A brawl almost resulted and the group was kicked off the property after being threatened by the police with arrest.
Aspen police confirmed there was a record of a "lecture and release" incident at the Aspen eatery Friday night, but couldn't confirm if Welker and his crew were involved.
Welker is in Aspen prepping for his wedding this weekend to fiancee Anna Burns, a brunette model who was crowned Miss Hooters International 2005.
The Patriots have cut veteran tight end Bo Scaife after just 11 days on the roster.
Scaife was cut after the Patriots claimed injured tight end Jake Ballard off waivers from the New York Giants.
The Patriots also cut offensive tackle Mike Ingersoll.
Scaife struggled with his conditioning during his brief tenure with the AFC East club.
The former Tennessee Titans starter and franchise player, Scaife was with the Cincinnati Bengals last season. However, he registered no statistics due to a shoulder injury and spent the year on injured reserve.
Scaife, 31, is a former University of Texas standout drafted in the sixth round in 2005 with career NFL stats of 251 receptions for 2,383 yards and 12 touchdowns.
Giving voice to the outrage over Timothy Bradley's controversial split decision over Manny Pacquiao, two senators introduced legislation Monday that would create a special boxing commission to oversee all matches in the United States and restore integrity to the sport.
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who boxed while at the U.S. Naval Academy, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., a former middleweight boxer, are pushing the measure establishing the U.S. Boxing Commission, an entity that would carry out federal boxing law, work with the industry and local commissions and license boxers, promoters, managers and sanctioning organizations.
