As noted by our sister blog in the Dallas Observer, former Madison High and UT Longhorn Vince Young has been sued by the strip-club employee who last year said he'd been beaten up by the Eagles quarterback.
Back then he said it was because he had flashed an upside-down Horns sign, but in the suit he filed today, Creiton Kinchen makes a different claim: VY was pissed, he said, because Kinchen would not give him $8,000 in one-dollar bills.
Make it rain!! (Very cheaply.)
Says the suit:
Creiton was working minding his own business in the "cage" area dealing with an employee on credit card issues, when suddenly and without provocation, an intoxicated Vince Young began cursing and making derogatory remarks to Creiton because Creiton refused to sell Vince Young $8,000 (Eight thousand dollars) in $1.00 (One dollar denominations) using Vince Young's credit card. It was Vince Young intention to use the $1.00 bills to tip and throw money at the dancers who would entertain him and his party that evening.
Maybe the story will change again at some point. But for now, let's just wallow in the wonderfulness of imagining VY big-timing it with a decadent display of tossing around
Benjamins Jacksons Hamiltons Lincolns Washingtons.
It could have been worse: He could have asked for quarters. That might not have been too dangerous for the dancers, though, seeing as how VY's tosses would likely miss the target.
