NESN – If you think IK Enemkpali punching Geno Smith in a locker room was bizarre, wait until you hear this story.
The Buffalo Bills defensive end recently was released from the New York Jets after he broke Smith’s jaw with a sucker-punch in the team’s locker room. But apparently he was involved in a much stranger incident while he was in college. …
According to the police report, the weird situation all started on Sept. 1, 2011, when Enemkpali began messaging a new Facebook friend named “Missy Lee.” Enemkpali reportedly went to “Missy Lee’s” house after she promised him oral sex, but left when he found a person ‘covered head-to-toe in a blanket’ who refused to remove the blanket.
Shortly after, though, Enemkpali reportedly returned to the house after “Missy Lee” called and urged him to come back. The person still wouldn’t remove the blanket, but the light from a ringing cell phone reportedly revealed that the subject under the blanket had facial hair.
According to the police report, Enemkpali then struck the person in the face out of fear he was being robbed, and after he threw the punch, the voice under the blanket changed to that of a male.
You have to say this about IK Enemkpali: He might have only been a sixth-round draft pick with two career tackles and have a bit of a temper, but he is no dummy.
Granted, I don’t condone violence, either against your starting quarterback or against some weirdo who catfished you. I believe that collecting 600 bucks that your QB owes you should be done calmly and rationally, without turning Mr. Hand into Mr. Fist. And I’ve always said that the proper response to some guy offering you unwanted oral sex in an unfamiliar apartment is a polite “No thank you.” That’s how we do things in a civil society.
That said, judging by the reaction of the other Jets players, Geno Smith was begging for a mouthful of bloody Chiclets. And you have to hand it to IK for having the wisdom to walk away from Missy Lee’s apartment when he did. I can almost hear my dad’s voice in my head now. “Son,” he’d say. “If you ever go to a strange woman’s apartment for oral sex and she refuses to take off her blanket and show you the goods it’d be smart to walk out. Also, if for some reason you do go back and found out she has a beard, you’re probably about to get robbed.”
That and the business about waiting a half hour after you eat before you go swimming were really the best pieces of advice he ever gave me. And while I feel as though punching Missy Lee was gratuitous and unnecessary, it’s good to see Enemkpali had the wherewithal to get out of there before something seriously bad happened. Chalk it up as a teaching moment and move on, I guess.
P.S. Enemkpali trolls the Internet for anonymous sex? I’m beginning to understand what Rex Ryan sees in the kid.
