LeGarrette Blount “Leader” In Physical AttackDecember 6th, 2011
Disturbing news is coming out about an incident where Bucs running back LeGarrette Blount is alleged to have been involved after the Bucs’ loss to Detroit Sept. 11, per Mark Puente of the St. Petersburg Times.
According to the police report, a man and his girlfriend, both wearing Bucs shirts, drove their 2008 Toyota pickup into the Visconti at International Drive apartments not far from Raymond James Stadium. The pickup then hit the mirror on a silver 2005 Ford Expedition, next to which Blount and two other men were standing. The victim did not want to stop next to the Expedition because the pickup would block other traffic. The three men got into the Expedition and drove around the pickup, cutting it off.
The three men got out of the Expedition. One of them “reached in and punched (the pickup driver) several times on his eye, nose and jaw,” according to the report. The victim “realized a second male was on his hood and was jumping onto his windshield and ultimately shattering the glass.”
The victim said the third man “was the leader and directed the actions of the other two.”
Blount was not charged in the incident. Per the article, Blount was said to have not been cooperative with police. Blount also refused to comment to the Times.
If Blount is not charged, Joe doesn’t know if this is a big deal or not.
