It seems like just about every year, at least one NFL prospect hurts his draft stock by making a boneheaded decision.Well, you can add Alabama linebacker Reuben Foster to that list.

On Friday, Foster, who is considered by many as a potential top 15 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, was sent home from the NFL Scouting Combine after what was described as a “heated argument” with a hospital employee.

Robert Klemko of Sports Illustrated provided us with some further details about the exchange that took place while Foster was waiting in a long line for an exam. As you can see, Foster allegedly pulled the “do you know who I am?” card after becoming impatient.

Then, Foster allegedly threatened the hospital employee with physical violence but the employee refused to back down.

This is when the “heated exchange” took place.
