Ryan Perrilloux missed his second practice in a row at LSU, meaning the likely starter at qb for the Taigahs is in trouble again. Which he is:

A server at Kona Grill in Perkins Rowe told The Daily Reveille late Tuesday night that Perrilloux arrived at the restaurant 30 minutes after it closed Friday.

Perrilloux entered the bar and attempted to order drinks. After he was denied service, Perrilloux began to curse and use racial slurs, the server said.

A Kona Grill manager approached Perrilloux, who then cursed the manager. The server said Perrilloux was asked to leave. And the police were called to the restaurant, but Perrilloux had left by the time any officers arrived.

The manager at this point is clearly over getting hundreds of calls from people both wanting to know what happened, as well as those threatening to burn down his establishment and turn his dog into boudin if he even thinks about pressing any charges. Perrilloux, though, could have been in the right in the situation, but only if this was the scenario.

Perrilloux: Barkeep, a glass of your most subtle, well-wrought pinot noir, please.

Bartender: Dude, we're closed. And we only have a Willamette Valley, and frankly, it's a little flabby. And this:

Perrilloux: BASTARDS! DO YOU NOT SEE ME IN NEED NOT ONLY NOW, BUT IN THE FUTURE! YOU MUST INCREASE YOUR PINOT NOIR SELECTION IMMEDIATELY AND BE GONE WITH THIS PIFFLE!

Bartender: I'm getting my fucking manager. Hey, are those pink 20 dollar bills in your hand?

If it wasn't this exact conversation, the Perrilloux is clearly in the wrong. Or the whole thing didn't happen. No one's really sure, and even if it did happen, you're hearing nothing of it---see both the "attention" of curious fans and a personal call from Les Miles, a call that had to go something like "Sir, I'm really, really sorry, here's some tickets and don't press charges because seriously, all we've got is a redshirt frosh behind him and we're going to Florida and Auburn this fall. Leave a filet on the back burner for forty five minutes and then take a look at it. That's his ass on the road if Perrilloux can't stay on the team."

RCR sums it up well in an email:

Seriously, think about this. Not only has this guy said fuck you to the rules over and over again, but its at the point now where Miles is actually calling places personally to apologize for his QB's behavior. How fucking embarrassing is THAT?

It's so embarrassing that he's...he's...he's going to be the starter this fall? Really? Yes?

Addendum: Umm...this is not the Ryan Perrilloux incident you're looking for.
