Rodman Dines, Dashes, And Possibly Assaults

Throughout his lifetime there has been a recurring theme to Dennis Rodman. Whether he was on the court, or off it, he seems plagued by the same thing whatever he’s doing. He just makes bad decisions.  Whether he was kicking a cameraman, or more recently choosing a reality show reunion over rehab. Or dropping all those F-bombs in front of the kids. Or deciding to make a movie about playing basketball with a team of dwarfs. Okay, maybe that last one isn’t so bad, but you get the point.

Well, Rodman is still being Dennis Rodman as he and some friends decided to eat dinner at a hotel in Miami on Friday night. The group racked up a $1,000 bill, which is pretty expensive for some dinner. They were probably thinking the same thing, and then they decided they didn’t want to pay the bill, so they dined and dashed.

From TMZ:

Sources tell us, Rodman and some friends had dinner last night at the Gansevoort Hotel in Miami, and left without paying the $1,000 bill. When the manager tried stopping Rodman’s party, an altercation erupted and the GM got punched in the face — allegedly by a member of Rodman’s posse.

Sources say the fight spilled into the street, and resulted in a rear view mirror being knocked off a $289,000 Lamborghini parked near the sidewalk.

Police confirm the Miami Beach PD responded to a call from the hotel right around the time the altercation took place. No word yet on whether the victim will press charges.

The restaurant agreed not to press charges if the bill was paid — and it was. During all the commotion, Dennis conveniently disappeared.

See, this is one of those times where Rodman compounds one bad decision by throwing another one right on top of it. Actually, he made three. First of all there’s the whole skipping out on the bill, but following that up by hitting the manager for actually trying to make you pay isn’t smart either. The third decision, which Rodman will never realize, is that he’s Dennis Rodman.

When people see him they know who he is. So if he goes and does something like this, when the police get called, he’s always going to get busted. I can guarantee when the cops showed up and spoke to the manager and other witnesses Rodman and his posse were described as “two big black guys, two big white guys, four midgets in basketball jerseys and Dennis Rodman.”

That’s what happens when you decide to do these kinds of things while wearing a feathery pink boa.
