Police: Drunk Jaguars Player Tried To Use Bubble Gum As Money

Dwayne Gratz had a weird Saturday night. Or maybe Sunday morning. At 5:53 a.m. on Sunday, Miami beach police arrested the Jaguars cornerback and cited him for disorderly intoxication and trespassing after trying to pay for items at a store with bubble gum.

The police report, which you can read below, says Gratz tried to use gum because he did not have any money. The convenience story employee asked Gratz to leave, and when he refused, called the police. Officers observed that Gratz smelled like alcohol and had bloodshot eyes, and booked him on the two misdemeanor counts.


Gratz spent the day and night in jail, before bonding out Monday morning. The Jaguars were off this weekend, but Gratz missed today's practice. Jacksonville head coach Gus Bradley called it an "unfortunate situation" and said it will be handled internally.
