Former UA football players Tedy Bruschi and Charlie Camp were arrested at an eastside billiards club Friday night, reportedly after an altercation with a bouncer over a pool cue.

Tucson police were called to Pink E's, 8640 E. Broadway Blvd., about 6 p.m. after a scuffle involving Bruschi, Camp and staff at the club, police said.

Burt Kinerk, Bruschi's attorney, told The Arizona Daily Star that the incident started while Camp was searching for a pool cue but was told not to use a particular cue.

An argument ensued, and Camp and Bruschi were asked to leave, Kinerk said.

Bruschi reportedly argued with bouncers as they were taking Bruschi and Camp outside. Bouncers then handcuffed the two men and called police.

Both men were arrested on charges of assault, criminal trespassing and disorderly conduct.

Bruschi was cited and released at the scene while Camp was taken into custody because of an outstanding warrant for his arrest. The warrant was reportedly for a 1993 traffic violation.

"There were no punches thrown and no drinking involved," Kinerk told the Star in an article published yesterday. "Tedy's upset because he feels the people there overreacted and the whole situation could've been avoided."

Justin Burk, Pink E's general manager, said yesterday that the club would not comment beyond police reports.

Camp and Bruschi, now a linebacker for the New England Patriots, were teammates on the famed "Desert Swarm" defense that led the Wildcats to a 10-2 record in 1993, including a 29-0 win over Miami in the Fiesta Bowl.
