Former Minnesota Vikings Pro Bowler Bryant McKinnie has won a lot during his NFL career: a Super Bowl ring with the Baltimore Ravens, the Outland Trophy as the nation’s best lineman, two All-American awards. But McKinnie couldn’t win his legal battle against a strip club, settling for $150,000 today.
Turns out Bryant McKinnie‘s infamous $375,000 strip club bill wasn’t as “bogus” as he said it was; the 350-pound offensive tackle has agreed to settle the lawsuit for the price of roughly 4,000 lap dances, aka $150,000.
According to new court documents, McKinnie recently struck the settlement agreement with Trick Daddy‘s father Charles “Pops” Young, who sued McKinnie for $375,000 in 2012.
Young claimed Bryant McKinnie ran up the bill over a 20-month period at two of his strip clubs, including the Miami staple King of Diamonds. According to Young, McKinnie promised to pay the bill back in 2010, but never did. You don’t want to anger Trick Daddy. Only bad things can come from that.
Bryant McKinnie is currently a free agent, and he ended the year as one of the worst offensive tackles, as rated by PFF by the end of his 2013 stint with the Miami Dolphins. It’s safe to say that his NFL career may be in serious jeopardy. In October 2005, Bryant McKinnie was charged with a misdemeanor for his involvement in the 2005 Minnesota Vikings boat cruise scandal.
On May 26, 2006, Bryant McKinnie pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and being a public nuisance on a watercraft in connection with the Love Boat scandal. He agreed to pay a $1,000 fine and perform 48 hours of community service.
