NFL Star Jared Allen -- Violent Threat in Bar Fight

4/20/2010 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has obtained video of Minnesota Vikings defensive superstar Jared Allen unleashing one of the nastiest threats ever on a bar patron who allegedly called Jared's fiancee a word that rhymes with "punt."


Jared and his fiancee were hangin' at the Grapevine bar in Scottsdale, AZ a few weekends ago when some dude allegedly hurled the 4-letter slur towards the future Mrs. Quarterback Destroyer.

When Jared heard the insult,  the 6'6", 270 pound Pro Bowler -- who's also an avid hunter -- told the guy, "I'll break your f*cking neck homeboy ... and then I'll write a check to your f*cking name too."

In the video, a woman can be seen dragging Jared away from the other man. We're told both Jared and the other dude each left the bar without further incident.

Jared's rep at EAG Sports Management tells TMZ, "No matter what, Jared will always protect and defend his family."

And this is news why? He shouldn't stick up for his fiance? And he's in the wrong but the jerk harassing him is just exercising his rights or what? Sounds like TMZ is using it to further their readership...

Ginny-you are a ****ing idiot. You would sue him if you were there? Why would you sue him? Because you are ugly? Sorry, that isn't his fault. You would have nothing to sue him for. He did nothing wrong. He was out to have a good time and some money hungry ******* tried to pick a fight with him and now he has morons like you all over him talking about "role model" this, "role model" that...so now he can't go out in public for fear of what others will do to him? Get real and get a life you moron.

Jared has a checkered history of being a drunk. ... The NFL is monitoring his act. What is he doing in a bar?



Allen has been arrested/charged for DUI a total of three times. The first was in Pocatello, Idaho on May 11, 2002. He was then arrested twice within five months in Leawood, Kansas on May 11, 2006 and on September 26, 2006. He was sentenced to 48 hours in jail as a result of the latter arrest.



In March 2007, Allen voiced his displeasure with the Chiefs' refusal to give him a long-term contract extension. No offers were made for Allen throughout free-agency due to the Chiefs' high tender for his trade (two first-round draft picks). On April 27, 2007, it was announced that Allen was suspended for the first four games of the 2007 Chiefs' season, and he returned to the Chiefs saying he "will do everything [he] can to help bring a championship back to the great fans of KC." On May 22, Allen signed a one-year contract worth $2.35 million, but was liable to forfeit $552,941 of his contract because of a four-game suspension for driving under the influence. On July 16, Allen's suspension was reduced to two games following an appeal and thus he forfeited $287,500 of his 2007 salary.

So - apart from not actually "violent" and not actually a "bar fight", top journalism there.

Jared and I both attended Idaho State University, in Pocatello, Idaho. He graduated a couple of years ahead of me, but I was fortunate enough to of had two classes with him. He's a very nice guy, and is extremely down to earth, in spite of his preternatural athletic ability.



You won't find a more avid outdoor enthusiast, and golf afficinado, than Jared. He's the pride of ISU (Idaho State University), and has given copious amounts of money back to the university. He's one of our biggest benefactors.



Jared, please attend another ISU football game next year, so that my father can shake your hand, and have you sign a football. He's one of your biggest fans!

To Ginny,



How did Jared Allen put many people at risk?



What would you sue him for?



Did you even read the story because it doesn't seem like you did.

Anyone who has the time or inclination to write out "99 bottles of beer on the wall" on the TMZ comments section has serious issues. Are you truly too pathetic to come up with anything more clever to say?

It kind of pisses me off to read the comments stating how this incident was all Allen's offense and athletes staying out of bars! Seriously people? Jared was protecting what was his and any man who just sits by and watches his significant other get harassed...you are the *******! That a boy Jared, protect what's yours. Can't wait to see you "tear" off some QB heads next season.

If that guy is 6'6" tall...then the holding him back is 6'1" and can probably hold her own with smartasses.

Allen had drinking issues during his playing days in KC. Of course he willd defend his g/f, but the dude shouldn't be hanging out in clubs. Great player...had off the field incidents in KC and it sounds like he soon will be again.
