An argument over reigning Super Bowl winning quarterback Tom Brady landed one man behind bars this weekend in Florida, police said.
NBC affiliate WFLA-TV reports the incident took place Sunday night in St. Petersburg after 33-year-old Brian Paulter had spent the day drinking with his friends. A police report said the “heated argument” about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback began on the way back to Paulter’s home.
Paulter became “enraged”, according to the police report, and hit another man multiple times in the face. Despite visible injuries and a lot of blood in the area, the victim refused to press charges.

Police say Paulter later entered his home and became physical with two women and shoved them. One of the women slipped and hit her head on the kitchen counter, causing a large bruise and a cut.
The injured woman refused to cooperate with police, but the second woman gave them a statement and Paulter was arrested.
Paulter was charged with domestic battery for the incident.
Police did not say what exactly the group had been arguing about regarding Brady, who led the Bucs to the franchise’s second Super Bowl title in February and his seventh all-time title after winning six with the New England Patriots.
