Brady Quinn would like to make it clear: He does not hate gay people. Responding to accusations that he hurled gay slurs at a group of men in a New Year's Eve altercation in Columbus, Ohio, Quinn said on Wednesday that, nope, it never happened. And furthermore, you know that Brokeback Mountain sequel they just shelved? Let's just say that it's back on, as long as filming occurs during the NFL offseason.
Quinn, denying all:
"At no time that night was I involved in a verbal or physical altercation, nor did I have any interaction with the police," Quinn said in the statement. "I want to be clear that I did not engage in any of the alleged conduct, nor did I make inappropriate comments to anyone. Any allegations to the contrary are either untrue or the result of misidentification."
However, Columbus police said when they arrived Quinn was arguing with 32-year-old Jason Thompson.
Oops. Looks like another congressional hearing on the horizon. I hope they get to the bottom of this; I'm sure we all have questions. Like, who spends New Year's Eve in Columbus, Ohio?
