According to a report from The Oklahoma Daily, wide receiver Spencer Jones was seriously injured in a filthy restroom bar brawl.
The fight was so bad that the report says Jones nearly lost his eye in the fight. The Sooners football player has reportedly undergone surgery and is currently recovering, according to The Daily.
The video begins with Jones telling his assailant to “Get the f*** out of here,” before Jones’ friend pushes the guy and pays for it with a combination of punches to his face.
From the report:
“Late Friday, Feb. 19, undated video surfaced on Twitter showing Jones involved in a fight in the bathroom at Norman’s Logies on the Corner, a Campus Corner bar at 749 Asp Ave., within walking distance of OU’s Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. After a verbal argument, Jones was assaulted by another patron who took him to the ground and repeatedly hit him in the face before placing him in a chokehold.
The Daily learned late Saturday that the altercation between Jones and his assailant occurred in the late hours between Saturday, Feb. 13 and Sunday, Feb. 14. Following the incident, Jones sought aid from OU’s athletic trainers.”
“Dr. Brooks came out of that surgery saying he’s extraordinarily lucky at this point, that he’s lucky he didn’t lose the eye altogether,” Glass said. “And so he was able to do some things surgically to rebuild that orbital socket and thinks everything is eventually going to come back to normal, but it’s going to take a while for him to fully recover.”
Woodrow “Woody” Glass of Ward and Glass, L.L.P., in Norman has been retained by Jones’ family as legal representation.
“He was trying to de-escalate that situation,” Glass told The Daily. “But unfortunately, it wasn’t de-escalated despite his best efforts, and he became the victim of this vicious assault you’ve seen.”
