Football star Vince Young received a misdemeanor assault citation after getting into a fight at a Dallas strip club and leaving before police arrived early Sunday, investigators said.
Surveillance video footage released by police appears to show the Tennessee Titans quarterback and several people talking in a room before Young attacks someone in the room. Others then try to break up the fight.
Dallas police Lt. Andy Harvey said an investigation led to Young receiving a Class C assault citation, punishable by a fine up to $500.
The video, obtained by CBS affiliate KTVT, shows Young in a back office talking to a manager. Another man in the office, who was identified at Creiton Kinchen, 45, makes a derogatory “Horns down” hand sign in reference to the University of Texas, Young’s alma mater, and says something to the quarterback.
Young is then seen talking to the manager for a few more moments before charging after Kinchen. A fight involving multiple people then breaks out.
The first call to police came at about 3:38 a.m. and reported “two black males fighting in the parking lot,” according to the station.
Club security made a second call to police at 4:06 a.m., and an ambulance was called at about 5:30 a.m., though the offense report shows that no medical attention was needed as Kinchen only sustained a minor cut to his lip.
Young wasn’t at Club Onyx when police responded to a call about the fight, said Dallas police Lt. Andy Harvey.
Titans spokesman, Robbie Bohren, said the team was aware of the incident and had contacted Young. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said in a tweet that the league “will look into it.”
Young, the No. 3 pick overall in 2006, got his starting job back last fall when Tennessee started 0-6 and owner Bud Adams put him back in the lineup. He helped the Titans win eight of their final 10 and heads into his fifth NFL season with a 26-13 record as a starter.
