Free agent defensive tackle Henry Melton is still searching for a new team, but some unflattering details surfaced Monday, which could affect his pursuit of a new deal. According to reports, Melton is being sued by a bar owner as a result of a December incident at Chill Sports Bar & Grill.

Melton allegedly fought back when four men tried to escort him out of the bar back in December, and he ended up biting the bar owner so hard near the kidney that the wound required treatment at the local hospital.

“There’s some psychological injury there. The thought of another human being you don’t know biting through your skin, piercing your skin: It’s a pretty frightening experience, and it’s dangerous,” the owner told WFAA, via The Big Lead.

During the incident, Melton bragged about his money while putting down the restaurant employees. Melton reportedly said that he “was a millionaire and the bartenders were nothing but poor white trash.”

It's an unflattering revelation for a man looking to find a new home, but the incident has not stopped the Dallas Cowboys and Minnesota Vikings from showing plenty of interest. It will be interesting to see whether or not the lawsuit will scare off either of his potential suitors.
