A Philadelphia Eagles linebacker and former Florida State University star was arrested after an incident involving him and several friends on Miami Beach.
Nigel Bradham, who lives in South Florida during the offseason, turned himself into Miami Beach Police on Monday, charged in the beating of a worker at the Hilton Bentley hotel last Thursday.
According to statements, a group of six people started arguing with the employee over the length of time it took to bring them an umbrella they had paid for. The verbal argument became physical, with the victim sustaining cuts and lacerations, including one to the back of his head when a glass battle was allegedly smashed over it.
The six people then fled the scene, running toward Ocean Drive and entering a vehicle before speeding away. A phone was discovered at the scene, which was turned over to police as evidence along with a receipt showing Bradham paid for the umbrella with his credit card.

When reached for comment, the Philadelphia Eagles said in a statement, “We are aware of the recent incident involving Nigel Bradham in Miami. We have been in contact with Nigel and the proper authorities. Due to the ongoing legal process, we will have no further comment at this time.”
Bradham was an All-ACC linebacker during his senior season at Florida State before being drafted by the Buffalo Bills in 2012. After four seasons, Bradham signed a two year deal with the Eagles earlier this year.
