Ravens WR Jacoby Jones ‘Fine’ After Alleged Altercation With Stripper
UPDATE: The alleged stripper is denying the assault occurred.
OWINGS MILLS, Md. (CBSDC/AP) — Baltimore receiver Jacoby Jones is doing well after being involved in an altercation on a chartered bus.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh says the incident occurred early Monday morning and that Jones is “fine.”
TMZ reported Jones and his teammates were returning from the District of Columbia after celebrating offensive lineman Bryant McKinnie’s birthday when Jones was hurt.
CBS Baltimore says that a fight reportedly broke out on board that bus and sources say an exotic dancer named Sweet Pea hit Jones over the head with a giant Ace of Spades Champagne bottle, according to a report that first surfaced on TMZ.
Police officials say Jones was bleeding from the head but refused treatment, CBS Baltimore reported.
Harbaugh did not provide details of the altercation. The coach did say Jones “went through everything today that he was supposed to go through.”
Jones is rehabilitating a knee injury and has not played since the season opener.
Harbaugh says he scolded Jones and addressed the team. He says, “It’s not something we want to be known for. … It’s nothing to be proud of. I’m kind of disappointed in that sense.”
