As the NFL Draft is approaching teams and fans are ready to see how things will unfold. There is excitement surrounding these franchises but the Dallas Cowboys are in the news for entirely unrelated reasons.

In the early hours of Monday morning, things got ugly for the former Cowboys Pro Bowler.

Cowboys News: Former Cowboy Mike Jenkins Had Heated Confrontation At Florida Bar

The argument took place at The Kenwood in St. Petersburg, Fla., and Jenkins became upset with how an employee handled his credit card. A witness told TMZ that a staff worker either lost or misplaced Jenkins' credit card, which visibly upset the 39-year-old.

The witness at the scene added that Jenkins went outside and yelled at a security guard after he caused a ruckus inside the bar.

There was a video that surfaced, showing Jenkins irate, dropping a bunch of profanity. He was seen saying, "Give me my [expletive] card!".

Around 1:39 am EST, a rep from the St. Petersburg Police Department told TMZ that cops went over to the bar for a "fight or disturbance." No arrests were made but Jenkins was given a trespass warning.

Jenkins was selected in the first round of the 2008 NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys out of USF. He suited up in five seasons for the Cowboys and played in 71 games. He racked up 161 total tackles, 43 pass deflections, and eight interceptions.

After his tenure with the Cowboys, Jenkins played for the Raiders and the Cardinals before stepping away from the game.
