Former NFL running back Trent Richardson had a gun pulled on him at a furniture store during a dispute with the store owner. The incident took place at the end of October and was caught on camera.
The store owner says Trent was the aggressor in the incident that led to his wife pulling out a gun. As you might expect Trent has a different version of the events.
From TMZ Sports:
Here's what we know ... the former Alabama star hit up the Furniture Plug store in Birmingham on Oct. 28 to deal with a complaint about a problem with a recent order. During the visit, the owner's wife whipped out a firearm.
Surveillance video shows Trent and his manager leaving in a hurry -- clearly concerned for their safety.
We spoke to the store manager who claims Trent was the aggressor -- but the football player says that's just not true.
Here's Trent's side as told by his manager ...
Brandon Bowers tells TMZ Sports ... Trent had ordered thousands of dollars worth of new furniture earlier in the year to be delivered to his home.
But, when it arrived, he says most of the items had significant damage -- from tears in a couch, to a cracked bed frame ... even a dresser that was missing handles and mirrors.
So, Bowers says Trent gave the store owner an ultimatum -- either refund the money or replace the furniture with acceptable pieces.
Trent wasn't a great NFL running back, but he's a pretty big dude and not exactly a guy you want to be challenging to a fight. Unless of course your wife is armed.
