Brian Urlacher files hair-raising lawsuit against Florida clinic

Brian Urlacher’s not giving out any free plugs.

The former Bears linebacker is suing a Florida hair clinic which used his image in advertising, since it’s not the Florida hair clinic he used to become a former bald.

According to Mitchell Armentrout of the Chicago Sun-Times, Urlacher has filed a suit for misappropriation and seeks more than $200,000 in damages from Charles Medical Group, saying they tried “illegally to steal and cash in on” his success.

Urlacher signed a deal in 2014 to endorse Restore Hair, but the lawsuit claims that Charles Medical Group used his likeness without permission on their website.

The website no longer has any mention of him, but screenshots filed as part of the lawsuit shows his image, and claims they targeted Chicago-area clients using his celebrity status.

Oh, what a tangled web we weave, . . .

    Since Urlacher shaved his head shouldnt he be sued for false advertizing along with the company Restore Hair.his hair grew back naturally and that company had nothing to do with it.

    He only plugs one company.

    That picture looks kinda funny. At least he doesn’t look like he needs a chinstrap to keep it in place.

    Urlacher still wants to fight with split-ends.

    He never wanted to play in a dome.

    I see what you did there.

    Another lord of no rings.

    OK, I’ll join in.

    Charles medical group to claim suit “does not have a follicle of truth to it.”

    Urlacher doesn’t want anyone pulling the rug out from under him.

    The pool of bad puns here is bottomless.

    Urlacher looks weird with hair

  16. jags2daship says: Feb 7, 2017 10:08 AM

    His lawyer said Can you Hair me now?

  17. docsweeney says: Feb 7, 2017 10:09 AM

    Doesn’t sound good for Charles Clinic…oh well, hair today, gone tomorrow.

  18. mullman76 says: Feb 7, 2017 10:14 AM


    That’s quite a name.

    Though, I think Legenbass is more prevalent.

    Thank you, I’ll be here all week, please tip your waitress.

    Sounds like a bad cover up.

  21. wyboemail says: Feb 7, 2017 10:47 AM

    Love Brian Urlacher but dude, you looked better bald. And he did not shave his head. He started losing his hair at an early age. Probably when the Bears started losing. Bald is dominate.

    tried to brush up on my puns while combing over the details of this story, but couldn’t come up with anything.

    anyways, seems like Brian wigged out over this and his mane point is that he isn’t going to strand for this sort of thing.

    in any case, this lawsuit seems to be a lock.

    He pulled the rug out from under that little scam.

  24. thegreatgabbert says: Feb 7, 2017 2:59 PM

    Nice try but they scratched on the cue ball.

    Which is the best lotion for athletes to give up to promote hair growth, the cream or the clear?
