Two Virginia offensive linemen including
Junior offensive lineman Will Barker and redshirt freshman lineman Dave Roberts were picked up at Club 216 on Water Street at 3:45 Saturday morning. Police say both men admitted to stealing beer from a cooler at the nightclub. Both face larceny charges. Roberts, who is 19 years old, is also charged with being a minor in possession of alcohol and with using a fake ID.That's not a funny story until you learn that Club 216 is "Charlottesville, Virginia's only gay and lesbian bar and dance club." (Club216.com: This link is exactly what you think it is. So click with caution)
As Orson Swindle points out,
"if you’re going to steal something at a gay club, sweetie, make sure it’s someone’s heart, not a few beers from behind the bar."Hell...if the big lugs had just worked their money makers on the dance floor, I'm sure they would've gotten the beers for free.
The UVA players caught a huge break in that the place was more discreetly named "Club 216" as opposed to The Lonely Poker, Served Straight, Rods, Swish or The Manhole.
Note: I'm not saying anyone involved in this story is gay. You can find yourself in some weird places at 3:45 in the morning. Regardless, doesn't make it less funny.
