According to a Saturday morning report by Ryan Cortes of the New Times Broward-Palm Beach, a man is claiming that Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey and his twin brother Mike Pouncey assaulted him Friday night at the Cameo Nightclub in Miami Beach.
According to Ricky Vasquez, the Pouncey twins, along with four bouncers, jumped him and he has a swollen face and a chipped tooth as a result of the incident.
Vasquez goes on to claim that he was gay-bashed at the party and that he intends to press charges.
Cameo is the same night club at which the twins wore their infamous “Free Hernandez” hats last year in support of their former University of Florida teammate Aaron Hernandez, who’s currently standing trial for multiple murders.
It’s important to state that neither of the Pouncey twins have been arrested as of right now and that we only have one side of the story.
The Steelers signed Maurkice Pouncey to a five-year extension back in June. Mike Pouncey, who plays center for the Miami Dolphins, is currently recovering from hip surgery and his expected to miss the start of the season.
