Default Moreno got into a bar fight over the weekend

Student: Knowshon threw KO punch


By STAFF REPORTS - Athens Banner-Herald
Published Wednesday, February 24, 2010


A University of Georgia student who was in a fight Saturday night in downtown Athens claims NFL running back Knowshon Moreno punched him out, but authorities aren't sure who threw the punch, Athens-Clarke police said.


The 18-year-old student didn't report the assault until Monday afternoon, and only after he "sought advice from friends," according to the police report.
Workers at the UGA health clinic told the student Monday that he had a concussion, and he filed a police report the same afternoon. But police aren't sure what happened; the student was drunk at the time of the fight, and his friends filled in the details for him later.
The victim said he was at Bourbon Street bar on East Broad Street after midnight Saturday when three other men jumped him, according to police. Friends were helping him leave the bar when Moreno ran up and punched him once in the face, the student told police.
"We developed information through a third party that Moreno said that he was struck first," police Capt. Clarence Holeman said. "We're in the process of trying to obtain statements from everyone concerned, including Moreno."
Moreno, who was at the bar Saturday night, spoke voluntarily with investigators Tuesday afternoon at the Lexington Road police headquarters.
Moreno was a star player for the Bulldogs in the 2007 and 2008 seasons, and last year rushed for nearly 1,000 yards as a rookie with the Denver Broncos.

Moreno is too fat and slow to get in a bar fight.

I don't think this is much to be worried about with an under-age, black out drunk kid, who clearly cannot remember what exactly happened and didn't report it for two days. Moreno was smart to voluntarily talk to investigators, puts him in a better light.

BUT...

What the hell is up with these NFL players going back to their college hangouts and partying and getting into trouble. Once you're in the NFL it is fine to go back to your college area, but stay out of the normal bars and don't let yourself get into situations like this.

Knowshon called me about this the other day. He wanted to reassure me that while he did throw a punch, his fist was stopped for a loss by the kid's face.

the NFL takes great strides at their rookie symposium also to keep these things from happening, at least to keep the players from being able to say they had no idea what would happen

it's amazing how many of them don't listen

THANK GOD!!!!

I found the footage that will clear Moreno once and for all. Let's see. Too drunk to remember what happened. One punch gave him a concussion that lasted at least 2 days. I've got it. It was Mike Tyson.

I don't buy this. Moreno is more of a 'two handed shove between the numbers' kinda guy.

Moreno tried to dodge the student's attacks but, like always, he couldn't make anyone miss.

Mark Schlereth used to pop back into the Corner Club for a tub or two back in my days in Moscow, ID. This is nothing new.

What!
Well this proves it, Moreno couldn't run up to anyone, so it must have been someone else.

Moreno "ran" up?

The thought probably entered his mind around 9, and he finally got across the bar to hit the guy by last call.

I saw LeSean McCoy at the Pitt-Nova game on Sunday. Guys like to go back and see their friends, no big deal. Until they get in trouble that is.

He is a running back in the NFL. I am surprised you haven't heard of him, he was pretty highly touted last year, I believe he plays with the Broncos.

"Duuuuuude, you were SO drunk last night!"

"No ****, dude! What in the hell happened to my nose? It hurts like a mother****er!"

"You don't remember, dude? You totally faceplanted your face into the sink in the bathroom! It was ****ing hilarious! Knowshon Moreno was there, and he helped you get up."

"Dude, I think I just figured out how we can pay the cable bill."
