Jacoby Jones apologizes for nightclub incident, says he did nothing wrong
(WJLA) - Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones has taken responsibility for what he calls an "incident" outside a D.C. nightclub early Monday morning, but treaded lightly when asked about the specifics on the altercation.
Jones, the 7-year NFL veteran and Super Bowl champion, was allegedly hit over the head with a bottle of champagne by a stripper after attending a birthday party for a teammate at the Opera Ultra Lounge in Washington.
The receiver said on his weekly radio show on 105.7 The Fan in Baltimore that he didn't do anything wrong, but that the was in the wrong place in the wrong time.
"There was no altercation," he said, according to the Baltimore Sun. "There's nothing wrong. I did nothing wrong, but I take responsibility for being in the wrong place at the wrong time."
According to a police report, officers were flagged down near the corner of 15th and I streets at about 3 a.m. Monday, where they found Jones bleeding. No charges were filed and the receiver refused medical treatment, telling officers that he didn't know how he was injured.
Representatives of the D.C. nightclub refused to comment. The story was first broken Tuesday by TMZ.
Jones said on his show that he apologized to both his teammates and Ravens head coach John Harbaugh. He hasn't played in a game since injuring he knee in the team's season opener against Denver.
