Bar Fight That Left Oklahoma WR Needing Reconstructive Surgery Now Under Investigation
The Norman Police Department has officially launched an investigation into a bar fight that left Oklahoma football player Spencer Jones and a friend bruised and bloodied on a dirty restroom floor.
According to OU Daily, the Norman Police Department said charges will be filed by the Cleveland County district attorney upon the conclusion of the investigation.
“NPD has labeled the incident as aggravated assault and battery in its report and says it has identified all involved parties. However, the report does not name parties other than Jones. No arrests have been made, it states.
Norman Public Information Officer Sarah Jensen clarified to The Daily in an email that any eventual charges would be determined by the Cleveland County district attorney upon the conclusion of the investigation.”
A Twitter user identifying himself as Braden Brown said he and his brother are the men who fought with Jones and his friend.
“Just to get rid of the misconceptions, I’m the fellow in the beanie and that is my brother,” Brown said in the tweet. “We are not wrestlers at any university, we have been wrestling since we were in diapers and MMA/Cage Fighting since we were 12. They gave us no options unfortunately. We showed restraint.”
Jones could be heard saying “get the f*** out of here,” and added “what you got,” before his friend in the jean jacket standing next to him pushed Brown’s brother. That led to the guy, who appeared to be bleeding from his nose, to strike back with a flurry of punches before taking Jones down to the ground MMA-style.
Jones nearly lost his left eye in the fight and underwent a four-hour reconstructive surgery, according to his attorney, Woodrow “Woody” Glass of Ward and Glass, L.L.P. in Norman.
