Robert Kraft flashed Super Bowl ring to police who stopped him leaving Fla. spa


According to prosecutors in the Kraft case, the New England Patriots' owner flashed his Super Bowl ring to the police when he was pulled over leaving a Jupiter, Fla. day spa.

“Robert Kraft was very polite and respectful during the whole process . . . [he] asked the [officer] if he was a Dolphins fan,’’ prosecutors wrote, per The Boston Globe. “He then told the officer he was the owner of the Patriots . . . and showed his Super Bowl ring.’’

Apparently, the officer didn't know who Kraft was at the time that he was stopped. The stop took place a day before the Patriots played the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game.

This development doesn't mean much in the case as a whole. It's just a small but notable event in the saga. Before this news, the latest argument had been about whether or not video evidence of Kraft should be released. Recently, a Florida judge issued a ruling that temporarily barred the release of the Kraft video.

While Kraft has apologized for his actions, he is still fighting them in court. And this is despite the fact that some in the Kraft case reportedly can't believe he won't take a plea deal. The battle seems likely to continue on in the Florida courts.

We'll have more updates on the Kraft case as they become available.
