According to NBC Miami, Jo-Lonn Dunbar, a linebacker for the St. Louis Rams NFL team, and Donte Greene, an NBA free agent, were arrested around 4:45 a.m. after becoming involved in a physical altercation outside of Dream Nightclub on Washington Avenue.


Have been hoping Ray Ray was able to take the job in training camp.

The most shocking aspect of these stories always has 2 common denominators...

How much alcohol does one consume to say "Hey, I wanna fight a professional athlete!" Not to mention; "well, I've already been in trouble, I guess one more fight won't damage my contract worth millions."

It's a shame, this defense plays so much better when he's suited up.

We also should get a vid of this fight. I'm not too familiar with the NBA player he scrapped with but I think he's a 7' center. Could be wrong on that though.

I remember last year when he got suspended Coach Fish was obviously not happy with him.

Although I agree he was missed last year during those first four games, this does bode well for his continued employment as a Ram. In fact I would not be surprised if he is cut by the end of the day.

6'11 Power Forward.

So Greene had a whole foot on Dunbar, but they weighed about the same amount. I wonder what the fight was about.

Would have to look for the article but it seems Dunbar was messing with Greene's brother at the club or prior to the club and Greene wanted revenge so he attacked him from behind. They were all cited for disturbing the peace only Greene was booked on aggrivated assault.

Dunbar tells police he was just defending himself

By Jim Thomas

http://www.stltoday.com/sports/football/professional/dunbar-tells-police-he-was-just-defending-himself/article_23bd5881-99d9-5745-ab1e-bda7e2773419.html

According to police reports on file with the Miami Beach (Fla.) police department, NBA player Donte Greene had to be restrained with a taser gun in an early-Sunday morning altercation with Rams linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar outside a South Beach nightclub.

Contrary to earlier reports, Dunbar was arrested for disorderly conduct and breach of peace — a misdemeanor. He was not charged with battery as had been indicated earlier.

Greene, on the other hand, was arrested for battery, disorderly conduct and breach of peace. Greene’s brother Dmetrique also was involved in the altercation and was arrested for disorderly conduct and breach of peace.

Rams officials have declined comment at this time, but Dunbar — one of the team’s starting outside linebackers — is expected to be on the field Friday when the Rams hold their first full-squad practice of training camp.

According to the police reports, Dunbar told arresting officers he was just defending himself.

The arrest affidavits indicated that the defendants (Dunbar and the Greene brothers) were involved in a verbal altercation as they left the Club Dream. Club security and several patrons attempted to keep the parties from fighting by holding them apart.

But a short time later, the defendants starting brawling just south of the club entrance. As Dunbar and Dmetrique were exchanging punches, Donte approached Dunbar from behind and began to punch Dunbar in the head and neck area.

According to the police reports, one of the arresting officers said he was concerned about Dunbar’s safety, and gave Donte Greene “one last verbal warning” to stop. When that warning was unsuccessful, Donte Greene was tased for “approximately 6-7 seconds.”

After that, the fighting stopped. Donte Greene subsequently told police: “I’m sorry officer, but this guy (Dunbar) has been after me for years since I got into the NBA. He was beating my brother and I had to do what I did.”

Where and how Donte Greene and Dunbar may have had a history is uncertain. Greene attended Syracuse University and Dunbar is from Syracuse, N.Y., and both athletes entered the professional ranks in their respective sports following the 2007-08 school year, but Dunbar attended Boston College.

Neither of Dunbar’s agents responded to text messages and phone calls from the Post-Dispatch. Dunbar could not be reached.

This marks the second year in a row Dunbar has gotten off on the wrong foot prior to a football season. Last August, it was announced that Dunbar would be suspended by the NFL for four games for violating league policy on performance-enhancing substances. He could face league punishment for his role in Sunday’s nightclub altercation. Dunbar re-signed with the Rams during the offseason, but was expected to be pushed by Ray Ray Armstrong for a starting job this season.

Donte Greene, currently a free agent, played 253 games with the Sacramento Kings from 2008-2012.
