T.J. Ward on strip club incident: Embarrassing, but blown out of proportion

Broncos safety T.J. Ward landed in a little bit of hot water last week when Denver police issued a warrant for his arrest on charges of misdemeanor assault and disturbing the peace in the wake of an incident at a strip club.

Ward appeared in court last Friday and was issued a summons, something that Ward says should have been the only thing to come out of the incident. He blamed miscommunication with law enforcement for the issuing of a warrant when a summons was all that was necessary to move things along.

“Anytime there’s a negative situation about yourself, it’s a little embarrassing,” Ward said, via the Denver Post. “But I think it was kind of blown out of proportion. It was basically a ticket or a summons, and it wasn’t supposed to be a warrant. There was miscommunication between the police department and myself, so that’s why they issued that. But that’s all being resolved.”

Ward allegedly threw a mug at a bartender at a Denver strip club after he was told that alcohol was not allowed inside the club. He has a court hearing on June 23, but it doesn’t sound like there should be too much further fallout for Ward as a result of the incident.

    Sounds like another NFL “class act” who thinks because he’s an NFL player he doesn’t have to follow rules…

    Most bar mugs are heavy items. He’s lucky he missed.

    Blown out of proportion? Since when is it okay for a grown man to throw things at people?

    Really you threw a mug at a bartender all because you couldn’t bring the drink inside? Why not just finish it outside and then go inside you moron. These athletes and their entitlements are getting ridiculous.

    If alcohol is not allowed inside the strip club, why does the strip club employ a bartender?

    TJ Ward’s credentials were in proportion. Until they were blown out of proportion.

    Well….a few of us cowboys think TJ Ward can take himself back to Cleveland.
    We take our women seriously here son, throwing a glass at a gal does not set well with us.
    You should have sent her an apology, to act like this was “just” a ticket ???
    Wrong town son, wrong town.

    In the end, the Browns look to be 5-11 this year because clearly, we are not talking about bright individuals in life, or on the ball field. Clearly, if you placed Ward’s brain in a bird, the bird would fly backwards.

    TJ Ward is a punk, no two ways about it. He’s a dirty player who delivered a cheap shot to the Gronk. Still waiting for him to be suspended for that.

    I’ve been at a bar with friends and been falsely accused of throwing something at a bartender. The police and club management will always side with the bartender making the accusation regardless of any wrongdoing. It happens.
