PARTY TIL YOU’RE TASED!
Thursday was Tampa Bay Rays reliever Al Reyes’ birthday. And he partied hard. Too hard.
“Tampa Police arrested Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Al Reyes early this morning, saying the reliever was drunk and disruptive after falling down, picking a fight and spitting blood at the patrons of a popular Hyde Park night spot. Witnesses told police the incident started around 2:30 a.m. at the Hyde Park Cafe, 1806 W Platt St., when Reyes fell against a ceramic pot inside the bar. Thinking someone had pushed him, police said Reyes began exchanging words with patron Eduardo Mora.”
Then the real fun started, which eventaully led to him getting Tased.
The report also says Reyes was spitting blood at people and flailing his arms around. Maybe Al was unhappy that his ERA is 13.50 and the league is hitting .500 against him early on. He was charged with “Affray”.
