Michigan Football: WR Csont’e York Threw Horrific Sucker Punch (VIDEO)
Michigan wide receiver Csont’e York’s career in Ann Arbor is likely finished, and he’ll be lucky if he avoids jail time after police released video on Tuesday of a brutal sucker punch he threw last month to get himself arrested.
“The victim appears to have not known the punch was coming. It knocked out a tooth and broke his jaw in three places, requiring it to be wired shut and necessitating the temporary use of a breathing tube, according to the police report, which was obtained along with the video via a Freedom of Information Act request.
The video shows a crowd of people outside Scorekeepers Bar and Grille, 310 Maynard St., around 2:15 a.m. on July 18. The Ann Arbor Art Fair was going on at the time, and tents are visible in the street next to the sidewalk.
York, 20, who is wearing a fishing cap in the video, and his teammate Da’Mario Jones, 19, apparently got into a confrontation with the victim and his friend off-camera because the victim reportedly bumped into York.
There was also some sort of argument about hockey and football, according to the report.”
York will be charged on August 22nd with aggravated assault and two counts of assault and battery.
