So, the tough-guy bro that entered the thunder dome with the Bash Bros, aka Rob and Rex Ryan, has filed a complaint with the Nashville police. Of course, this guy was from Colorado; because no #Smashville native would act like this. I don’t want to jump to conclusions and perhaps the allegations being made are true. But, there are two sides to every story and somewhere in the middle lies the truth. My assumption that is that no matter how awesome it sounds, Rex Ryan didn’t just reach across the table and grab this guy by the throat for no reason. Now, if he said that his his foot was on the table and Rex just started sucking on his toes, I might believe that.
TheBuffaloNews.com – An assault complaint has been filed against former Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan.
Don Aaron, the Metro Nashville Police Department public affairs manager, confirmed to The Buffalo News via a written email statement Wednesday that 30-year-old Matthew J. Havel of Pueblo, Colo., filed the complaint Sunday night.
“He alleges that he saw the Ryans in Margaritaville on Broadway, went up to their table, and that after being there for more than an hour, Rex Ryan reached across and grabbed at his neck,” Aaron wrote via email. “Havel alleges it was unprovoked.”
Surprise, surprise. The person who took the original SnapChat video has a completely different version of what took place. Go figure.
WYRK.com: “The video provided above from Jessica, who is from Buffalo, was taken by her boyfriend Frank Washburn who happened to be right there when the fight broke out. She was actually getting ready to go up and tap him on the shoulder when everything went down.
“I was just about to go over and tap Rex Ryan on the shoulder when all of the sudden this kid like came up to them and threw a drink in Rex’s face!”
So obviously this guy had it coming to him. Why would you go up to ANYBODY and throw a drink in face? From what Jessica said it looked like Rex tried to handle it with class, but brother Rob wasn’t having it! So now you know what really happened in Nashville before the fight the Rob and Rex were involved in.”
Good for you, Rex Ryan.
If someone just tossed a drink from Margaritaville in my face, I’d probably (allegedly) strangle them too.
