Darron Lee is 6-foot-1, 232 pounds and last year was a first-round pick by the New York Jets.
It’s hard to believe someone would pick an NFL linebacker to attack in a bar without warning, but someone apparently jumped Lee in an Ohio bar.
Connor Hughes of NJ.com recounted a Periscope post by Lee, which has been deleted. Hughes wrote that a “bruised” Lee said he was attacked at the bar as he was leaving, even though he hadn’t even talked to anyone.
“Midway from the exit of the bar, I get hit and tackled simultaneously,” Lee said in the broadcast, according to NJ.com. “Have no idea who it was. I wasn’t in an argument with anybody. I hadn’t said a word to anybody. Just leaving the bar to go home, and I get punched and tackled.
“I have no idea by whom. To this very moment I have no idea by whom. Don’t care.”
Lee went to college at Ohio State and he went to high school in New Albany near Columbus. The NJ.com story said bouncersRead More »from Jets linebacker Darron Lee said he was attacked in a bar by someone he didn't know
