    Former Patriots LB Willie McGinest Arrested in California

    This past weekend, the New England Patriots legendary LB Willie McGinest found himself on the wrong side of the law. Monday morning, he was arrested in Los Angeles, according to Bleacher Report. Sadly, a video was displayed incriminating the two-time pro bowler. McGinest began approaching a man who was sitting at a table in a lounge in West Hollywood, California. Prior to the altercation,  it appears these two gentlemen exchanged words. One can assume, these words may have not been too friendly toward one another.

    Although McGinest appeared to throw the first punch, the gentlemen in his entourage began jumping in as well. These gentlemen have remained unidentified, per sources. Throughout the video, it also shows McGinest picking up a bottle before nailing the guy in the head multiple times.

    “We are aware of the incident and the video, which is disturbing. Willie McGinest will not appear on NFL Network while we review the matter,” an NFL Network spokesperson told Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio.

    Naturally, he was arrested on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon. Later, he was released for making bail that was set to $30,000, according to Sadi Dean for USA Today. Not to mention, McGinest turned himself in to the police after the incident occurred.

    Willie McGinest’s NFL Tenure

    McGinest played 15 seasons in the NFL from 1994 to 2008. He suited for the Patriots for 12 seasons and the final three seasons with the Cleveland Browns. While in New England, McGinest won three Super Bowls and was selected to the Pro Bowl twice (1996 and 2003).

    He later joined the sports media shortly after his retirement. He’s currently a sports analyst for the NFL Network.
