Mike Evans Involved In Nightclub HassleAugust 22nd, 2014
[UPDATE: Per Greg Auman ot the Tampa Bay Times, this incident happened in March. The TMZ story incorrectly dates the incident Saturday night in Miami. The Bucs played the Dolphins Saturday night in Tampa.]
Video has surfaced of Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans getting into a throwdown outside a Miami nightclub in March. The incident happened before he was drafted.
Evans is seen arguing with a group of people outside a nightclub when chaos erupts. The video, obtained by TMZ.com, shows Evans jumping over a car and swinging. It looked more like a baseball “brawl” than anything else. There is more shoving and yelling than punches landed.
All the details are wrapped up in the TMZ.com report.
It all went down outside Dream Nightclub … where the #7 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft was screaming at bouncers. We’re told Evans had been partying inside the club moments before the video begins. While Evans — who just turned 21 yesterday — unloads on the staff, a person who appears to be in Mike’s entourage throws a punch at a bouncer … and that’s when all hell breaks loose. During the melee, Mike gets knocked out of frame … but comes running back into the center of the madness … throwing a haymaker.
To be perfectly clear, since Evans has been draft, to the best of Joe’s knowledge, he has been a model member of the Bucs. Joe has yet to hear an ill word about Evans and every dealing with Evans has been very professional.
