Keyon Reed, a former college football player, got the scare of his life after witnessing a team of trained S.W.A.T. members show up on his doorstep.


The incident took place this Friday, May 4, 2018, in Melbourne, Florida. The 26-year-old brought the situation on himself after he took to Twitter to insult and threaten the lives of several Dallas Cowboys members.

Reed's reason to turn violent was that the American football team didn't select him during the NFL Draft. The player believed that he should have made the team and wanted to be accepted anyway, as reported by TMZ.

Following Reed's rant on Twitter, the Melbourne Police Department confirmed that a S.W.A.T unit had been dispatched to his home. Reed was startled when he noticed the team of heavily-armed officers in front of him.


When questioned about the Twitter post, the football player explained that he didn't mean any harm and that he only wanted the Dallas Cowboys to sign him despite the fact he had been left out.

According to the 26-year-old, he was frustrated. Aside from threatening to blow up the Dallas Cowboys office and hurt the people inside, he told a couple of employees that he would have intercourse with their wives.

Ultimately, after talking to Reed for a while, the police officers determined that he wasn't an imminent threat and left without arresting him.


The 26-year-old's Twitter account has since been suspended, and although he dodged the bullet, this wasn't the first time that the 26-year-old had problems with the law.

Back in 2013, while he was still playing for the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, he was placed under arrest for assaulting a police officer before the start of the season.

Reed was detained on Monday morning after spending the night at Erlanger Hospital, where he received treatment following the altercation. At the time, it was reported that he had marijuana in his system.
