According to the New York Post, Patriots receiver Wes Welker and a few of his buddies were in Aspen, Colorado for Welker’s “unofficial” bachelor party. At some point, Welker and the gang decided that they would bum rush their way into the Aspen Food & Wine Classic.
Predictably, security at the festival was not too thrilled and tackled Welker and his friends.
Sources say Welker strolled up to the bash at restaurant Above the Salt with his posse and tried to rush in without checking in with party staffers. When security tackled the group, witnesses said they still wouldn’t cooperate, and demanded to be let in right away.
“Security tried to subdue the group” when a brawl almost broke out, a source told us. “Security then physically restrained [Welker] and his group to break everything up.”
We’re told Welker and his rowdy crew weren’t arrested, but cops threatened to do so. “Security calmed them down and kicked them off the property,” a source told us.
Aspen police confirmed there was a record of a “lecture and release” incident at the Aspen eatery Friday night, but couldn’t confirm if Welker and his crew were involved.
Lecture and release, huh? Since when did that become a police tactic?
