New England Patriots Pro Bowl wide receiver celebrated his upcoming nuptials by attempting to crash a party he wasn’t invited to while out in Colorado. The New York Post provides the details:
New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker and several of his burly buddies got into a fight with security guards as he was pre-celebrating his upcoming wedding in Aspen, Colo. Welker and six friends — out for what seemed to be an unofficial bachelor party — tussled with security when they tried to enter the Patrón tequila-sponsored “Summerology” event Friday night, part of the weekend’s 30th annual Aspen Food & Wine Classic.
Sources say Welker strolled up to the bash at restaurant Above the Salt with his posse and tried to rush in without checking in with party staffers. When security tackled the group, witnesses said they still wouldn’t cooperate, and demanded to be let in right away.
“Security tried to subdue the group” when a brawl almost broke out, a source told us. “Security then physically restrained [Welker] and his group to break everything up.” We’re told Welker and his rowdy crew weren’t arrested, but cops threatened to do so. “Security calmed them down and kicked them off the property,” a source told us.
Welker is extremely lucky to have escaped this incident without being cuffed. Needless to say, an arrest would do a lot of harm to his contract negotiations with New England.
