The Baltimore Ravens have been without their Pro Bowl wide receiver Jacoby Jones
since he sprained his medial collateral ligament in the season opener, but now the team might also have to deal with Jones suffering a bump on his head. Jones, according to the gossip website TMZ
, was injured last night aboard a party bus leaving a DC nightclub when a stripper clubbed him with bottle of high-end Champagne.
Some of the Ravens, fresh off trouncing the Houston Texans 30-9 at M&T Bank Stadium, headed to Washington last night to celebrate the birthday of left tackle Bryant McKinnie at Opera Ultra Lounge in downtown DC. Per TMZ’s “eyewitnesses,” McKinnie’s group left the club and boarded their party bus about 3 AM. Shortly thereafter, a fight reportedly broke out, and culminated like this, according to TMZ:
Our sources say a stripper named Sweet Pea is the one who hit Jacoby with a gigantic Ace of Spades bottle and this may have triggered the brawl. We’re told the bottle smashed over his head and he was “bleeding everywhere.”
A Metropolitan Police Department spokesman says officers responded to an altercation at the intersection of 15th and I streets, Northwest, a block away from Opera Ultra Lounge. The complainant, an adult male, was injured in the head but told officers he did not recall how he obtained the injury and refused treatment.
Ravens spokesman Chad Steele tells Washingtonian the team is aware of the TMZ report, but says only that Jones has been in meetings today while the team practices.
