The unpaid nightclub bill that resulted in an altercation and subsequent arrest of Bears' free-agent running back Garrett Wolfe on Sunday morning in Miami totalled $1,572, according to the police report obtained by the Sun-Times on Monday afternoon.
After being charged with retail theft, disorderly conduct, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest with violence, the former Holy Cross High School and Northern Illinois star's bond has been set at $11,500.
Wolfe allegedly became aggressive while disputing the purchase of three bottles of champaign at Cameo Night Club in Miami Beach. He was forcefully removed from the club, causing business to stop and patrons to leave, according to the report released by the Miami Beach Police Department.
Once outside, Wolfe was initially restrained before being released in order to settle his bill when he allegedly lunged at an off-duty police officer, prompting a scuffle that resulted Wolfe and two off-duty officers sustaining abrasions before Wolfe was finally handcuffed, according to the report.
Wolfe, who officers said smelled of alcohol, had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech, threatened to sue the officers and at one point said: "Let's compare bank accounts," according to the report.
The arrest could make it more difficult for Wolfe, whose free-agent status remains in limbo during the lockout, to either re-sign with the Bears or latch on with another team.
