Deadspin Reports Patriots Brandon Meriweather Shoots Two Men After Brawl
This allegedly happened on February 27th.
Normally if you shoot two people (one in the head, I might add), there is some sort of arrest or at least a police report. At this particular time. we have neither.
Here is what Deadspin has so far.
New England Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather allegedly shot two men, one of them in the head, during a fight on February 27 outside a house party in Apopka, Florida, according to John Morgan, attorney for the victims.
The trouble started at the Blue Jeans Lounge in Apokpa when a friend of Meriweather’s allegedly beat up a woman, according to Morgan. The woman’s brother arrived later with his own friend, and the confrontation shifted to a nearby party, where the brother soon got the better of Meriweather’s friend in a fight. That’s when Meriweather allegedly pulled out his gun and fired at the brother, grazing the man’s face and hitting the other victim in the head, according to Morgan.
“He’s extremely lucky to be alive,” Morgan said.
Always remember that a person is innocent until proven guilty and we are only hearing from the lawyer of the victims, who could be embellishing or outright lying.
Until there is am official comment from the police or a physical police report of the incident, it should be taken as an allegation without much facts backing it up.
The whole thing seems a bit shady— sounds like a Menace II Society plot, so before anyone jumps to conclusions I would just wait it out. It could be elaborate hoax. If legit, he won’t have to be worry about being “locked out” by the NFL, he will be “locked in” a prison, but we will see.
