So Karl Malone hunted some elks illegally and then offered a $25,000 bribe to a former business partner, Sidney Ray Davis to take the fall for it. To make things even a bit better Karl’s brother-in-law threatened the guy with bodily harm if he didn’t “make things go away.”
Now all that happened in the late 90’s and Malone denies the whole thing, but Davis says the reason Malone wanted him to take the fall was because he didn’t want the bad publicity because he was in a contract year. The following year, Malone signed a four-year $66.5 million deal. You can check out the whole story at SI.
I guess Karl thinks elbows translate well when it comes bribes and bullying. I think Karl needs to stick to trying to remember his family’s names, as you can see from this clip.
