Report: Pat Dye, Jr. is one of the agents who was cuffed, detained at Scouting Combine

trv_g_lucasoil_576 AP

On Saturday, rumors were rampant that two agents were cuffed and detained the day before in a restricted area at the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

We didn’t name names, and for good reason.  One of the agents vehemently denied involvement during multiple phone conversations.  The other agent could not be reached for comment.  After specifically denying any incident involving the unnamed agent who denied involvement, the league eventually clammed up completely, refusing to respond to any further inquiries.

Our buddy Brooks of SportsByBrooks.com reports that Pat Dye, Jr. and Jimmy Section “broke NFL rules by attending NFL combine activities in person on Friday at Lucas Oil Stadium thanks to passes obtained from event sponsor Under Armour.”

Brooks said that Dye was cuffed, detained, and removed.  Per Brooks, Sexton left before Dye was apprehended.

We continue to hear that a second agent was cuffed and detained.  We’ll continue to not name his name until we can obtain corroboration, or until someone else reports it.

UPDATE:  Pat Dye, Jr. contacted PFT to tell us the whole story, which we have posted in a separate item.

    I hope this doesn’t reset the police blotter.

    Gutsy journalism.

    I didn’t know that agents attending the Combine was against the law. Maybe against NFL rules, but since when did violating league rules rise to the level of breaking the law, requiring police to detain these men? Do corporate rules now rise to the level of legal restrictions? If so, life in this country is getting more and more Big Brother scary.

    Couldn’t they have just kicked them out and let the papers drag their names through the mud? Cuffing and detaining? Jeez. I guess these Indy cops don’t screw around. Just ask that Rams scout who had to pee and was arrested for public nudity.

    Oh no, Sexton is still at large.

    Under Armor is notorious for sponsoring felons.

    Their overpriced stinky jock gear sucks too. While I’m at it.

    The Turd Agent/Scout watch.

    Awesome stuff.

    If these guys were “cuffed and detained” because they “broke NFL rules”, Indianapolis police should arrest whomever cuffed them and whomever from the league ordered them to do so.

    This isn’t Russia, where large corporations basically run the country and have their own police forces. In this country private corporations don’t have the right to “cuff” anyone for breaking that corporations “rules”.

    Unless they were breaking local or state law, which it doesn’t sound like since they apparently had passes, the league could and should be the ones in trouble here.

    Should we know/care who these agents are?

    My buddy was arrested for being too drunk at a superbowl watching party. Please make ten reports following up so the PFT nation can be informed.

    It doesn’t say in the article that they were cuffed and detained by POLICE. I am assuming it was an over security guard greatly overstepping his authority, which only happens every freakin day in this country.

    Police generally try to restrict their “cuffing and detaining” to people who break “laws” not “league rules”.

    I think the fact that this was a private security guard committing an illegal act at the request of a league official may have something to do with why the league has “clammed up completely”.

    ‘This isn’t Russia!!! …….whine, whine, whine……

    Ever heard of laws regarding “trespassing”? I’ll bet even in Indiana, there are trespassing laws on the books.

    What’s wrong with some of you people?

    PFT…the TMZ of the NFL…such stellar reporting.

    You haven’t been paying attention. That is EXACTLY what we have become. Look what happened to the folks who protested outside the Koch brother right wing facist gathering in Palm Springs recently. And that happens all the time….

    This is barely news.

    If you have a pass from the sponsor (as the reports indicate), there was no trespassing.

    ==========================

    Did you miss the part in the article where is said they had passes to be at the event?

    Did you miss the part where it says they were cuffed because they “broke league rules”?

    Did you imagine the part of the article where it says they were arrested for “trespassing”? Because it ain’t in there.

    Did you imagine the part where it says the police were even involved? Because that ain’t in there, either.

    In fact, did you even read the article? Doesn’t sound like it.

    Criticizing others when you don’t even know what’s going on?

    What’s wrong with some of you people………
