by Will BrinsonKo Simpson reportedly hindering
Officers went to a Rock Hill bar just after 2 a.m. to help security with crowd control, according to the report. While police were there, security officers at the bar stopped 28-year-old Frederick Hart for speeding through the parking lot, the report stated. Hart became angry and argued with officers, refusing to leave. He was arrested for disorderly conduct.
Simpson was in Hart's vehicle and "was being verbally abusive" to police, the report stated. He was asked to leave several times, but kept saying, "I'm Ko Simpson with the Buffalo Bills. I am worth millions," according to the Herald.
Of course, Ko is from Rock Hill, so we should probably cut him a little slack on choices of locale. His place of birth, however, certainly doesn't excuse talking to police officers like he was the son of a country club's former president after being cut off from drinking any more liquor at a deb ball. Not that I would know anything about that.
Additionally, Ko's contract, as Dashiell points out, is only a "scant" four years and $2.13 million ... with one year left. So, yeah, unless Ko hasn't spent any money since turning pro and has been immune to the stock market over that time, it's fair to say his statement is a touch premature.
