Ha’Sean Treshon Clinton-Dix knows how to play defense. A five-star recruit and the 7th-ranked high school player nationally from Orlando, Florida, Clinton-Dix rose to prominence starring on Nick Saban’s Alabama Crimson Tide. The two-time BCS national champion and 2013 Consensus All-American became the 21st overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Ha Ha — the name he’s better known for — made 90 starts in his first 96 career games with the Green Bay Packers, Washington Redskins and Chicago Bears.
The 2016 Pro Bowler joined the Dallas Cowboys on a one-year free agent deal during the 2020 offseason, and if history tells us anything, bears aren’t big fans of cowboys. That sentiment rang especially true after a “home invasion,” which Ha Ha Clinton-Dix shared on his Instagram account.
Security camera footage, dated at 8:45 p.m. on June 22, 2020, showed two bears casually meandering up the driveway. Suddenly, Clinton-Dix appears in the frame riding his scooter, because what 27-year-old NFL star doesn’t ride their scooter around on a Monday night?
With agility that must make Nick Saban so proud, Clinton-Dix jumps off the scooter, turns, and sprints away as the startled bears scamper the opposite direction.
Ha Ha Clinton-Dix’s Bear Encounter
“I play D # gotta be ready to go. A lil high on my flip turn but the drive was there. I ain’t know how many was over there,” Clinton-Dix wrote on Instagram.
Naturally, NFL players were quick to comment in on the hilarious moment.
“My soul would’ve left my body,” Titans safety Kevin Byard laughed.
“Boy tried to ghost ride the scooter into em,” Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs joked.
Where Does Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Live?
Clinton-Dix purchased a $1.425 million estate in his hometown back in April 2019, according to the Orlando Sentinel. The 4,151-square-foot home features four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a four-car pull-through garage, which mirrors the scene of the now-famous bear meet-and-greet.
It’s unclear if the bear-crossing fiasco actually took place at Dallas Cowboys safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix’s Orlando home, but one thing is for sure: his reaction is priceless.
Clinton-Dix has logged 522 total tackles, 33 passes defended, 16 interceptions and four forced fumbles through his first six NFL seasons. After joining the Bears in free agency last year, Clinton-Dix started every game alongside All-Pro selection Eddie Jackson, securing his first career pick-six touchdown in 2019. The former first-round pick projects as Dallas’ day-one starter when training camp ultimately gets underway.
