Per NBC Sports Philadelphia, a man has been charged with simple assault following the incident.
“It was discovered that an adult male had been punched in the face. The male was transported to Avera St. Lukes Hospital where he was treated and released.
“Investigation led to the arrest of Kyle Douglas Hadala, age 29 of Sarasota, Florida. He was charged with simple assault.”
NBC Sports Philadelphia provided more details:
“According to the Brown County State’s Attorney Office, Hadala has been released on a personal recognizance bond. His next court appearance is scheduled for July 10.
A source on Saturday confirmed to NBC Sports Philadelphia that Goedert was indeed sucker punched and taken to a local hospital but was fine.”
Last season, Goedert hauled in 58 passes for 607 yards and five touchdowns.
