Boston.com - Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker was celebrating his upcoming wedding in Aspen, Colo. this weekend when his group tried to crash a party associated with the Aspen Food & Wine Classic, according to a New York Post report. Sources told the Post that Welker and his friends tried to enter a party at the restaurant Above the Salt without permission. Security guards then tackled members of the group, according to the report. Sources told the Post that Welker and his friends refused to cooperate even after security intervened, demanding to be let in. Police reportedly threatened to arrest Welker and other members of his party but came short of doing so, and the group left the property. Aspen police confirmed to the Post that there was a record of a “lecture and release” incident at the same restaurant Friday night, but they did not confirm whether that was the incident that involved Welker’s party.
First of all I refuse to believe that a fat wine festival security guard tackled Wes Welker in the open field like this. Guy is a slippery motherfucker. I just don’t see him being brought down this easily. Either way is there anything worse than a lecture and release incident? There can’t be right? Just sitting in the corner with a cop waving his finger in your face while everybody is drinking wine and getting shitfaced on the other side of the glass doors. And then you have to tuck your tail between your legs and go home. Got to be a bitter pill to swallow. Anyway since me and Wes are like fake twitter friends I’ll happily invite him to Napa with me and the First Lady next time we go. Don’t worry Wes. We make reservations and shit. Smooth sailing when you’re with the Portnoys.
