Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham arrested for assault in Miami

 By Brandon Apter, Sports Talk Philly editor

Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Nigel Bradham has been arrested following an altercation on Miami Beach, according to NBC 10. He has turned himself into the police and is reportedly being charged in the beating of a worker at the Hilton Bentley hotel last Thursday.

According to statements, a group of six people started arguing with the employee over the length of time it took to bring them an umbrella they had paid for. The verbal argument became physical, with the victim sustaining cuts and lacerations, including one to the back of his head when a glass battle was allegedly smashed over it.

The six people then fled the scene, running toward Ocean Drive and entering a vehicle before speeding away. A phone was discovered at the scene, which was turned over to police as evidence along with a receipt showing Bradham paid for the umbrella with his credit card.

The Eagles signed Bradham to a two-year contract back in March. 

Bradham, 26, has spent all four years of his NFL career with the Buffalo Bills, including 2014 under Jim Schwartz, the current Eagles defensive coordinator. That season was Bradham's most successful, recording 104 tackles, 2.5 sacks and an interception in 14 games. Last season, Bradham was limited to 11 games due to an ankle injury and never really fit well in Rex Ryan's blitz-heavy defensive system, registering 59 combined tackles and a sack. He'll have the opportunity to fill the spot once held by Kiko Alonso. Bradham was selected in the fourth round out of Florida State in 2012.
