Henry Melton, recently signed by the Dallas Cowboys, is suing the owner of a Grapevine bar and several others over a physical confrontation that resulted in the football player’s arrest during the Christmas holidays last year.

Melton, a 6-foot-3, 300-pound defensive tackle, contends in his countersuit that he was the victim of the attack, that a racial epithet was used and that a representative of the bar’s owner tried to extort money from him. Story at
