Four NFL players were arrested in London following a row over a £50,000 bar bill.

According to #stewartlovenfl the players were embroiled in a dispute at the London Reign Showclub – an A-list nightspot which features burlesque shows – in Piccadilly.
The report claims that the players had racked up a whopping bar bill after ordering champagne and vokda bottles.
Trouble is said to have erupted after they allegedly attempted to leave without settling their tab before police intervened at around 4am in the early hours of Saturday morning.
News of the incident could not have come at worse timing for the out-of-sorts Jags.
They enter their sold-out clash against the reigning Super Bowl champions at Wembley on a poor run of form.
The Jags, who came close to an unlikely Super Bowl appearance last season before losing the AFC Championship game, have lost their last three consecutive NFL games.
The Eagles are the favourites with the bookmakers to win this afternoon’s game in what would compound an embarrassing weekend for the Miami-based NFL franchise on and off the field.
The Jags are owned by mega-rich Fulham owner Shahid Khan, who earlier this month withdrew his £600million takeover offer to buy Wembley Stadium from the Football Association.
