This deserves a face palm GIF.
Cardinals COO Ron Minegar was pulled over in Arizona on Saturday night. While cops waited before giving him a sobriety test, they asked if he worked for the team and how long he’s been with the Cardinals.
Minegar used that opportunity to also throw shade about former DL Darius Philon’s “bad decision” arrest, while he himself was in the process of being arrested for DUI, per TMZ Sports.
It’s all in police video obtained where Minegar — one of the Cardinals’ highest-ranking execs — spoke with officers about his player’s gun arrest in Phoenix earlier in the week.
“He pulled a gun on a gal at a strip club,” Minegar told Chandler, Arizona cops on Aug. 10. … “That’s not a good thing.”
“That sounds like a poor decision,” one of the officers responds.
“That’s a pretty bad decision, yep,” Minegar says.
60-year-old Minegar was pulled over at around midnight on Aug. 10 about 40 miles from the Cardinals’ stadium after cops say he was speeding and driving erratically.
You can see in the vid … Minegar looks pretty wasted when they begin to question him, slurring words and admitting he had been drinking earlier in the evening. Cops say the guy reeked of alcohol too … and when they began to talk to him outside of his 2009 Chevrolet — he became combative, and argued with one officer.
Eventually, Minegar calmed down … and had a conversation with several officers about Philon — a defensive lineman the Cardinals had just cut because of an arrest involving a gun incident at a local strip club.
Minegar was eventually field tested for DUI … and after appearing to bomb all of the cop’s tests — they asked him if he’d take a breathalyzer. When Minegar refused … cops slapped the cuffs on him and arrested him.
The Cardinals released a statement shortly after the incident, saying, “Ron Minegar’s actions last night are inexcusable. He made the decision to drive after drinking alcohol and is fortunate that he was pulled over before injuring anyone or himself.”
Unclear if the Cards have punished Minegar yet for the arrest … we’ve reached out to the team, but so far, no word back yet.
There was no need for Minegar to throw shade at Philon while he himself was getting into his own trouble with the cops.
Darius was cut from the Cardinals recently following his arrest in May for allegedly holding two women at gunpoint and is facing aggravated assault with a deadly weapons charges of his own, per the New York Post.
