Henry Melton Allegedly Said He Was a Millionaire & Restaurant Employees Were "Poor White Trash"

By Jason McIntyre

Henry Melton, the NFL free agent defensive tackle who is close to signing with the Dallas Cowboys, was arrested in December following a bar incident, and is now being sued for biting the bar owner during the fracas.

Although audio isn’t available for the bar fight video – which was obtained by WFAA – Melton is alleged to have told restaurant workers at Chill Sports Bar & Grill that he “was a millionaire and the bartenders were nothing but poor white trash.” Melton made $8.45 million with the Bears in 2013.

When employees tried to throw Melton out – 6-foot-3, 295 pounds – it took four men to do it. In the process, Melton fought back, and allegedly bit the bar owner so hard near his kidney that it required treatment at a hospital. The bar owner told WFAA:

"“There’s some psychological injury there … The thought of another human being you don’t know biting through your skin, piercing your skin: It’s a pretty frightening experience, and it’s dangerous.”"

As you can see in the video above, Melton looks like he caught a beating as well.

Melton’s representatives told ESPN that they plan on suing the bar, too.
