Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones is “fine” after an early Monday morning altercation with a stripper named Sweet Pea, reports CBS Sports.
Coming off of a 30-9 win against the Houston Texans on Sunday night, Jones boarded a party bus with teammates to celebrate Bryant McKinnie’s 34th birthday.
The details are understandably murky, but it is reported that an altercation with a stripper named Sweet Pea led to the dancer bashing him over the head with a “gigantic Ace of Spades bottle.”
With Jones’ allegedly bleeding profusely, a friend of Jones’ tried to retaliate against Sweet Pea, which led to other teammates rushing to stop the altercation.
CBS Sports has more:
After Jones was hit with the bottle, an ambulance was reportedly called for ‘a bleeding male.’ According to TMZ, not only did the blow to the head hurt Jones, but he was bleeding everywhere after it happened.
One of Jones’ friends reportedly tried to retaliate against Sweet Pea, but McKinnie stopped the friend and then a fight broke out between McKinnie and Jones’ friend.
It’s not clear why Sweet Pea hit Jones over the head with the bottle. It’s also not clear how big the Ace of Spades bottle was. Ace of Spades bottles come in eight sizes, ranging from 750 milliliters to 30 liters. You can see the big bottle at the bottom of the page.
The whole situation occurred around 3 a.m. ET Monday. Authorities responded to the scene, however no arrests were made.
According to Ravens’ coach John Harbaugh, Jones’, who has been rehabilitating a knee injury, “went through everything today that he was supposed to go through,” reports the Associated Press.
Harbaugh says he chastised Jones and used the incident as a lesson for the team.
“It’s not something we want to be known for,” said Harbaugh. “It’s nothing to be proud of. I’m kind of disappointed in that sense.
“What do you want to be known for? Do you want to be known as a football player or do you want to be known for that?” Harbaugh continued. “My dad, Jack Harbaugh, is here. That was definitely a motto that was enforced in our household, that nothing good happens after midnight. I did reiterate that with the guys today.”
