Stay hot Bryant. ;-7

From the Miami Herald:


Another professional athlete has been arrested in Miami stemming from a fight in a nightclub.

The latest incident happened early Sunday and involved Bryant McKinnie, a 6'8 and 335 pound Minnesota Viking's tackle and former University of Miami player who lives in Davie. McKinnie was part of the Hurricanes' 2001 National Championship season.

According to a Miami police report, McKinnie, 28, was involved in a large street brawl outside Club Space, 34 NE 11th St.

McKinnie was arrested and charged with aggravated battery, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest without violence.

Police said they had been called to club about a fight. When they arrived, they found McKinnie being thrown out of the nightclub by a security guard.

Outside the club, McKinnie spit on the patron he was arguing with and yelled obscenities at the man.

The man told the officers he would not press charges, if McKinnie left, which he appeared to do. The officer observed McKinnie entering the nearby Gold Rush, a strip joint.

At around 6:30 a.m. the officers were again called by a parking attendant reporting a large fight in front of Club Space.

McKinnie had returned tot he club and was fighting with the man. He was arrested and eventually released on bond. It's not the first time McKinnie, the seventh overall pick in the 2002 NFL Draft, has gotten in trouble with the law while partying. He was a main player in a 2005 scandal on a boat cruise involving several Viking players/.

In that incident, McKinnie was charged with a misdemeanor for having sex with a dancer in a public area of the boat.

He eventually pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and being a public nuisance on a watercraft. He agreed to pay a $1,000 fine and perform 48 hours of community service.

The NFL fined McKinnie and fellow Viking Fred Smoot the salary for one game for the incident.

According to news reports, the fine for McKinnie was approximately $41,000. A day after the fine was announced, McKinnie was given a raise and a seven year extention of his contract worth $48 million.
