Following a melee at a local strip joint, Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young was issued a Class C assault citation in Dallas, Texas, early Sunday morning.
No arrests are planned and the former University of Texas star’s citation, while for a misdemeanor charge, likely will entail a fine that he will pay and that’s it.
The incident is said to have occurred at a Dallas strip club early Sunday morning after a man at the venue insulted, verbally or otherwise, Young’s alma mater.
A Dallas police source said that Vince Young was attempting to exchange cash, possibly for single dollar bills, at Club Onyx when all hell suddenly broke loose.
Apparently, someone made disparaging remarks about the Longhorns, and then flashed an upside-down “Hook ‘em, Horns” hand gesture. A brawl ensued.
Vince Young hopes the Almighty won’t let the NFL suspend him.
Today, the NFL star apologized to his teammates for the whole strip club fight, noting that he’s praying to God that the NFL won’t “come down hard.”
After practice today, Young said, “I just made a mistake, I made a big mistake even being there and I let that guy provoke me into doing what I did.”
“I pray to God that [league Commissioner] Roger Goodell doesn’t come down hard on me, because I definitely want to be here for my teammates.”
Right, because 1. God saw the fight, and 2. Even if He did, He’d be more concerned about Young suiting up this fall than any pleas for forgiveness.
