[Star Tribune] A Kansas City Chiefs football player allegedly got into a drunken confrontation in a downtown Minneapolis hotel early Sunday and was being arrested when his teammate allegedly charged police officers.
Both players, Saousaolii P. Siavii Jr. and Gregory L. Wesley, were ultimately arrested.
According to police reports: Siavii, known as “Junior,” was “extremely intoxicated,” throwing objects and yelling obscenities at a 21-year-old man about 1:15 a.m. in the lobby of the Graves 601 Hotel.
As officers attempted to arrest the 6-foot-5, 336-pound defensive tackle, Wesley blocked the exit and charged the officers. The 27-year-old Wesley, a 6-foot-2, 206-pound safety, was sprayed with a chemical irritant and arrested.
Siavii, 26, refused to get into a squad car and spat at the officers. A hood was placed over his head and a van was summoned to transport both players because of their “extreme size,” the police report said. The incident in the 600 block of 1st Avenue N. lasted 10 minutes
The men were booked into the Hennepin County jail and later released.
Bob Moore, director of public relations for the Kansas City team, said that he was aware of the arrests but that the team would “let the legal system take its course” and likely wouldn’t take disciplinary action against Siavii and Wesley.
According to jail records, Siavii was booked on suspicion of disorderly conduct and fifth-degree assault. Wesley was booked on suspicion of disorderly conduct.
The case will be presented to the city attorney’s office for possible misdemeanor charges, said Minneapolis police spokesman Ron Reier.
