Al Reyes Arrested, Tased

Postby tmlfan4ever » Fri Apr 11, 2008 11:26 am

According to the St. Petersburg Times, Al Reyes was arrested early Friday morning "after falling down, picking a fight and spitting blood at the patrons of a popular Hyde Park night spot."

Reyes may have been out celebrating his 38th birthday, which was Thursday. The newspaper reports that Reyes "fell against a ceramic pot inside the bar" and thought that someone had pushed him, at which point he "began exchanging words" with a patron who eventually "punched Reyes in the face." In a news release, police said that Reyes then "began to spit blood on the people in the area and began to swing his arms about," at which point an officer reportedly twice used a taser to subdue him.

I gotta admit, this story made me chuckle a bit... why the hell was he "swinging his arms about"?

Like an octopus? A gorilla? :-D

Seems like Tampa/St. Pete has all the funny drinking stories. Wasn't there one about a Rays pitching coach last year?
