OooooNooo!    

I'm sure such a nice young man like that would not cause a disturbance. I'm sure its all a misunderstanding. I'll bet when the blond young waitress asked if he would like water with his meal he said "I'll just tap-it" (meaning tap water of course) and somebody got the wrong meaning, confusing him for Tiger Woods.

They mistook him for Charles Latibeaudiere, and when he didn't respond as they yelled, 'Over the shoulder,' they called the cops.
Marion Barber is one of my favorite Cowboys. I've never heard a negative word about him before.

The hotel wasn't bored and decided to call the cops on Barber. Their was a reason. Black has nothing to do with it.
