Chicago Bears defensive lineman Henry Melton was arrested in December for an incident in at a Dallas area bar. Aside from throwing punches, he also allegedly but the owner of the bar.

The bar was trying too remove Melton for unruliness and details of the incident have leaked out, including allegations of the verbal jabs Melton threw at the restaurant employees.

From WFAA.com:

"According to the lawsuit, at the bar the night of the incident, Melton was telling restaurant workers that he “was a millionaire and the bartenders were nothing but poor white trash.”"

Not so surprisingly, Melton’s agent Jordan Woy has released a statement in response claiming the opposite.

“We have recently reviewed the lawsuit and do not believe the validity of the allegations made. We look forward to providing the true facts in court and will defend this matter vigorously. We will seek to hold The Chill and others accountable for any and all damages Henry has suffered at the hands of multiple men who attacked him.”
