The Jacksonville Jaguars are in London to play the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, and The Sun reports that four Jaguars players were arrested at 4 AM on Saturday over a bill at London Reign Showclub. The players reportedly had a “total bill in the region of £50,000,” and tried to leave without paying their tab.

Trouble flared after they were accused of trying to leave the London Reign Showclub without paying their tab yesterday.

The source went on: “The total bill was in the region of £50,000 and some of the lads tried to leave the club but were prevented from doing so by security.

“Things got pretty heated and there was a lot of swearing and shouting and things became physical. In terms of preparation for their match, you couldn’t think of anything worse.”

The Jaguars released a statement on the incident,  saying that they’re “aware that four of our players were detained over restitution of a bill.”

NFL.Com’s Ian Rapoport reports that Jaguars defensive backs Barry Church, Ronnie Harrison, D.J. Hayden, and Jarrod Wilson “were arrested but not charged in what some believe was a misunderstanding.”

There’s sure to be much more coming on this story in the coming hours with the Jaguars playing at 9:30 AM ET.
