Here’s a story you don’t see everyday: The wife of New York Rangers legend Brian Leech, Mary Beth Leetch and sister Tracy Murphy, have both been accused of attacking and badly beating a bartender following a bar tab dispute at Brandy’s Piano Bar, a renowned gay bar in New York City.
EXCLUSIVE: Wife of Rangers legend Brian Leetch and her socialite sister allegedly attacked staffers at a Manhattan bar after they were asked to leave
Say what!? This is crazy!
Leetch, Murphy and an unnamed third woman were reportedly asked to leave Brandy’s by bartender Greg Goodbrod and waitress Maria Gentile and then allegedly refused to pay their $33 bar tab.
“We don’t pay for drinks,” they sniffed, according to a source. “Gentlemen pay for our drinks.”
According to the New York Post, a “ruckus” then ensued and it resulted in Goodbrod needing seven staples in his head to close a head wound. Ouch!
Needless to say, this is a CRAZY story. Just check out some of these quotes from the New York Post:
“You’re fat, you’re ugly and that’s why you’ll never make it on Broadway!” one of them allegedly spat at Goodbrod, a witness said.
Just as the women were escorted through the door, one of them reached back inside, grabbed Gentile by the hair and dragged her out with them, the witness added.
“They were like a pack of mongrels,” the witness said. “I’ve never seen two skinny, innocent-looking people act like that.”
Once out on the sidewalk, the women banged on the storefront windows and door — apparently because Murphy had left her cell phone inside.
Leetch, a mother of three, and Murphy, a mother of six, were charged with assault, harassment and criminal mischief for their role in the “ruckus”. The New York Police Department (NYPD) did not detain the women as they had no prior arrests and were not considered flight risks.
A court date has not yet been set for Leetch and Murphy, but lawyer Joe Mure insists that his clients are not at fault for what transpired. “They were abused by the bartender and the people inside of the bar. Unfortunately these ladies went through a terrible night they will never forget,” the attorney said.
