    Chiefs kicker charged with felony

    ELLSWORTH, Wis. - Kansas City Chiefs kicker Lawrence Tynes was charged Wednesday with breaking a bouncer's nose in a bar fight, a felony with a maximum penalty of 3 1/2 years in prison.

    Tynes, the NFL's first Scottish-born player, turned himself in Wednesday morning and made his first appearance in Pierce County Circuit Court on one felony count of substantial battery and one count of misdemeanor battery. He was released on a $15,000 signature bond.

    He practiced with the team Wednesday. Practice broke up before word of the criminal charges got out.

    The alleged fight took place early Sunday morning at a bar in River Falls, where the Chiefs have their training camp.

    A police report said Tynes allegedly hit a bar patron in the face, then hit the bouncer in the nose.
    Chiefs' Kicker Tynes Charged With Felony

    Tynes was charged after police received medical reports, River Falls Police Capt. John Stapleton said. Wisconsin law provides for a felony battery charge if the victim has a bone broken.

    Two other players, defensive tackle Junior Siavii and safety Greg Wesley, were arrested early Sunday after allegedly getting into a drunken confrontation with police in a Minneapolis hotel. Each is charged with one misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct, and Siavii is also charged with a misdemeanor count of fifth-degree assault.


    Tynes won the kicking job from veteran Morten Andersen last season but has struggled in training camp this year.

    The Chiefs have a scottish brawler for a kicker. IMO, it's just a bar fight, not worth a felony charge.
