Report: Chargers fine Weddle for watching daughter’s halftime show
The San Diego Chargers fined safety Eric Weddle $10,000 for watching his daughter perform at halftime during their Week 15 victory over the Miami Dolphins, reports Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune.
Weddle’s daughter performed during a dance ceremony at halftime and Weddle stayed on the field to watch. He was “stunned” and “furious” about the fine, according to the report.
Weddle’s agent, David Canter, tweeted about the fine, saying the way Weddle has been treated by the organization is “beyond reproach.” Weddle was placed on injured reserve Monday, which Acee’s report says came against his wishes.
Weddle will not be allowed to travel with the Chargers for their last game of the season, says Canter.
The nine-year veteran is schedule to be an unrestricted free agent this off-season. The safety has been with San Diego his entire career but is not expected to return.
