Video Of Gun Pulled On Former Alabama Football Star Trent Richardson After Store Dispute
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports
Former NFL RB and Alabama star, Trent Richardson had a gun was pulled on him during a dispute at a furniture store, and the incident was captured on video....
quote:

Here's Trent's side as told by his manager ...

Brandon Bowers tells TMZ Sports ... Trent had ordered thousands of dollars worth of new furniture earlier in the year to be delivered to his home.

But, when it arrived, he says most of the items had significant damage -- from tears in a couch, to a cracked bed frame ... even a dresser that was missing handles and mirrors.

So, Bowers says Trent gave the store owner an ultimatum -- either refund the money or replace the furniture with acceptable pieces.

We're told Trent felt the store owners were giving him the runaround -- so he went to the store on Oct. 28 with his manager to talk things out in person.

Bowers says the store owner got aggressive and at one point challenged the former #3 overall NFL Draft pick to a fight.

Trent declined -- saying he wasn't going to brawl with the man in front of his wife ... and that's when Bowers says the wife pulled out a pistol and began waving it around.

Bowers says he immediately grabbed Trent and bolted for the door -- fearing for their lives. Now, Richardson is taking action -- he intends to file a report with local police.
Furniture Plug owner Clint Catlin tells his side...
quote:

"We were protecting our store. Trent came in aggressive. My wife being her, she was protecting her space."

"Trent's a big guy, came in aggressive. He made her pull out the pistol. This is a family business. We were protecting our brand."

We also spoke with Clint's wife, Mariah, who says "I felt Clint's life, my life and our 7-year-old's life were threatened."

As the furniture in question, Clint says the items were sent to Trent's home in good condition and the photos are not a true reflection of what really happened.

He adds, "Trent received everything he paid for."

That store owner clearly is a racist and white supremacist exhibiting systemic racism and needs years of critical race theory re-education.

After watching his NFL play, I'm surprised he didn't bump into every glass pane EXCEPT the open door on his way out. Boss at Bama though

I love the whole “Blame Bammer” first mentality this board has. Still not over the many years players like Trent ran all over your defense.

Store owner conveniently didn't hand over the video and audio that led to the gun being pulled. In other news, that is how people get shot. Pulling a weapon you do not intend to use and waiving it around like an accessory. She is very lucky Trent or his manager were not carrying wpns and felt threatened themselves.

That's some cheap arse shit-looking furniture. That's a cheap-assed looking store, too. And WTF does an ex NFL player need a manager?
