Just like Tim Hardaway, Brady Quinn says he doesn’t hate gay people. The ASSOCIATED PRESS reports that the Cleveland Browns QB denied he was involved in a New Year’s Day fight and that he made a gay slur.
Police had received a 911 call that Quinn & friends were yelling insults at gay passers-by and getting into altercations at a Columbus, OH, restaurant. But Brady released a statement Wednesday saying it was untrue:
“At no time that night was I involved in a verbal or physical altercation, nor did I have any interaction with the police. I want to be clear that I did not engage in any of the alleged conduct, nor did I make inappropriate comments to anyone. Any allegations to the contrary are either untrue or the result of misidentification.”
However, when police arrived, they found Quinn arguing with 32-year-old Jason Thompson. When friends told Brady to back off after the cops arrived, he did. However, Thompson “turned his aggression on officers and he was arrested and accused of disorderly conduct.”
The Browns believe their QB did nothing wrong, as the team released its own statement: “After speaking with Brady and his representatives we find these reported accusations without merit.”
Well, everything appears to be OK. Now, back to the Browns’ bench, Brady.
