Knighton got hit with a vodka bottle, threatened to shoot people?
We heard previously that Jacksonville Jaguars DT Terrance Knighton needed eye surgery following an incident at a nightclub. At the time, we really didn’t know what happened, but to those of who write about athletes and nightclubs for a living (as far as you know), we assumed that he didn’t just fall down on the dance floor.
And he didn’t. While some of these reports conflict a bit, we’ll go ahead and assume it’s all true.
The Florida Times-Union says that Knighton got hit in the face with a bottle of Ciroc vodka in a fight that he did not initiate. They also say that no police report was filed, while a local television station disagrees.
According to WOKV, there was a police report. This would be in direct conflict with the FTU report that says there wasn’t. We did some detective work on that.
They say that an off-duty police officer saw Knighton and his friend Spoon being escorted from the club after they got into a fight with others in the club. The report also says that they repeatedly made threats outside to shoot people. Awesome.
We don’t know the severity of Knighton’s eye injury right now, but was is clear is that he wasn’t an innocent bystander.
