A cornerback for the Kansas City Chiefs was robbed at gunpoint inside an Atlanta Waffle House earlier this month, losing expensive jewelry, thousands in cash, and a $90,000 silver Hummer, Atlanta police said.

Alphonso Hodge told police that when he sat down to eat at a the restaurant at 1701 Northside Drive about 4:45 a.m. on March 6, a man pulled out a .38-caliber revolver and told the National Football League player to "give it up or they would shoot him," according to the police report.

Hodge told police he had seen the man minutes earlier when the suspect, along with two other men, left the restaurant with a take-out order as he was coming in.

The men took $8,500 in cash, two diamond earrings valued at $6000, a $20,000 bracelet, a $6,000 watch and $450 dollar sunglasses along with the SUV. :eek:

Sounds like he deserved to be robbed. It makes me sick to my stomach to see these guys blow their money on that shit. Sound like the robber damn near got his whole 1st year salary.

"Deserved" seems harsh. Granted, he was making a poor decision, but he did not deserved to get robbed.

He should have called Siavvi to scare the shit out of the guy. He would have given his stuff back, plus everything he owns out of fear. Siavvi is a master at the whole assault fear deal.

Actually, they just started allowing plastic. However, I also don't think they just started charging $8,479 for a plate of eggs and grits with a side of toast. Wait, I think the bacon might be extra, so maybe 'Phons did need the scratch ...

If he planned to leave a 15% tip, then the bacon had better cost less than $7,391.30.

Kills me how dumb these dudes are with their money. There was some former Husker who after he retired from football wound up selling his SB ring (I can't remember who he played for either) to his buddy so he could have some blowing cash for the evening, because these poor guys just have to upkeep the image...

...freakin' dolts. SEriously, I freak out if I have more than $100 in cash on me. If he lost 8500.00 at 4:00 AM, imagine how much he STARTED with that night...

I can see his crew talking to him that night,
"Alphonso, what shall we do tonight? Shall we commit some tom foolery?
Shall we make some cheritable donations to the Atlanta syphony?
Perhaps we should go all out and spread cheer amongst the less fortunate in our fair city."

Hodge, "Yes it sounds like a marvelous time, and perhaps afterwards we can take in some fine cuisiene at one of my favorite four star resturaunts, The Waffale house, where chicken and waffles will cleanse our refined palettes."

Kudos to Alphonso to give up the blingy accoutrements and the Hummer. If he had resisted, he might have been scattered, smothered and covered.

There is at least a hopeful sign that the Waffle House(s) and Denny's of the world are not racially discriminating against late night diners.

KK just did the math breakdown.

Said that Hodge only got 6 game checks and his signing bonus which would total @$126 K.

The junk and the Hummer costs @ $131K.

So the Hummer has to be on a loan.

What's this? Keitzman doing his best to yet again belittle anyone associated with the Chiefs orginaization? Never would I thought in a million years.

Maybe to celebrate a Chiefs player looking like a tard, he'll tell us why Clark Hunt is going to move the team to LA, and why we should have baseball downtown. Again.

Anyone carrying $8500 in cash and blinged to a place like Wafflehouse, at 4am, without at least a carload of friends with him, is just asking for trouble.

I'm glad he's alright and all he lost was his money and pride. Hopefully, he learned a valuable lesson, and will pay attention to what he's doing and where he is at at 4am.

You're right I am an asshole, but thats beside the point.

If he's blowing his NFL fortune before he establishes an NFL career then that shows lack of good decision making. Which as a chiefs fan I would prefer our Defensive Backs to have. Now go back to your crack pipe before someone robs YOU!

Insurance scam was my first impression.

That's what I'm thinking as well. Maybe he had one of his boys come in and hold him up so he could claim everything on insurance. Then they get to keep/sell all the stolen items and get reimbursed from the insurance company. I'm always skeptical when I hear stuff like this.

I'm not saying its the case, just within the realm of possibility. He wouldn't be the first young athlete to make a mistake. Maybe he got some gambling debts and needed quick cash.

Police catch man suspected of robbing NFL player
Pro cornerback held up at gunpoint at Waffle House

By JEFFRY SCOTT
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Published on: 03/15/06
Atlanta police have caught the man who allegedly held up Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Alphonso Hodge at gunpoint inside a Waffle House in Atlanta last week and his agent said Tuesday police have returned the stolen goods.

Hodge, 23, was held up while sitting down to eat at the Waffle House at 1701 North Avenue about 4:45 a.m., March 6. He told police a man pulled out a silver .38 caliber revolver and told him to "give it up or they would shoot him," according to the police report.

The man and two companions took Hodge's silver 2004 Hummer2, $8,500 in cash, diamond earrings worth $12,000, a $6,000 Aqua Master watch, a $20,000 bracelet, and a $90 pair of Nike tennis shoes, according to the police report.

No one was injured.

Hodge's agent, Ken Harris, said Wednesday that police found Hodge's Hummer2, worth about $90,000, and the man driving it was wearing Hodge's jewelry.

"It was one of those things where the cops had to ask a bunch of people questions," said Harris. "I guess at the Waffle House or whatever. The next thing I know is that the cops found the vehicle and he was wearing the jewelry. Alphonso has his stuff back. I don't think he has to do anything except maybe he'll have to go testify against the guy. They found all of the stuff and caught the guy."

Atlanta police have not released the name of the man or men arrested. They have scheduled a press conference Thursday.
