Chase Claypool will certainly be answering questions about what went on after video surfaced of him in a bar fight in Southern California.
TMZ Sports obtained video showing the Pittsburgh Steelers WR at the Wild Goose Tavern with friends when things got crazy.
“Sources tell us there was an issue involving someone throwing dollar bills at a woman inside the bar, which sparked an argument … and eventually, things moved outside.
We’re told Chase was NOT an instigator — but as you can see in the video, things started to get out of control and Chase jumped into the action to help out one of his buddies.
At one point, the 6’4”, 238-pound NFL star gets in the middle of the action — where one of the combatants was wrestling on the ground — and Claypool delivers a swift kick to the face.”
The Costa Mesa Police were called to the scene but all parties involved had left already.
“Unclear if the guy who got kicked plans on taking action — but people close to Chase tell us he was just trying to protect his friend in a chaotic situation, like anyone would do.”
