According to OU Daily, Oklahoma Wide Receiver and holder Spencer Jones was involved in a bar fight in the bathroom of Norman’s Logies on the Corner, a Campus Corner bar just a few blocks away from Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium.
Of course the camera never catches the beginning of an altercation, but it looks like a pretty run of the mill bathroom bar confrontation. Jones tells one guy to “get the fuck out” of there, before Jones’ friend gives one of the guys a shove.
Within a second the gloves come off and this little bulldog pounces on Jones face with a fury of punches before taking him to the ground and delivering more. Jones’ buddy (the one who made the initial push) doesn’t fare too well either with the other guy.
On a piss-soaked men’s room floor, it just doesn’t get much worse than this.
After a 4-hour facial reconstruction surgery, Jones is lucky he didn’t lose and eye in the fight. According to Jones’ attorney Woody Glass, it could’ve been much worse for Jones.
“Dr. Brooks came out of that surgery saying he’s extraordinarily lucky at this point, that he’s lucky he didn’t lose the eye altogether.
And so he was able to do some things surgically to rebuild that orbital socket and thinks everything is eventually going to come back to normal, but it’s going to take a while for him to fully recover.”
Glass also maintains that Jones was trying to keep the peace, but was attacked in the process. However, the kid that pummeled him appeared to have a bloody nose before video started rolling.
“He was trying to de-escalate that situation. But unfortunately, it wasn’t de-escalated despite his best efforts, and he became the victim of this vicious assault you’ve seen.”
A guy on Twitter claims to be one of the guys in the video handing out the beatdown (along with his brother), and refutes rumors they’re college wrestlers but says that they have been doing MMA since they were young.
Just to get rid of the misconceptions, I’m the fellow in the beanie and that is my brother. We ARE NOT wrestlers at any university, we have been wrestling since we were in diapers and MMA/Cage Fighting since we were 12. They gave us no options unfortunately. We showed restraint.
