Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham is facing assault charges for an incident that occurred outside of a Miami Beach 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.
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.
An arrest report claims Bradham “without provocation, struck the victim in the nose with a closed fist, causing the victim to fall to the ground.”
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.
You have to be a complete idiot to get arrested for beating up a hotel worker over an umbrella.
