Former NFL QB Vince Young Knocked Out In Wild Bar Fight

Former NFL quarterback Vince Young was knocked unconscious in a bar fight that took place in Texas last month. According to TMZ Sports, the altercation took place at Tokyo’s Joe Shot Bar in Houston on February 4th.

In the footage, that was obtained by TMZ, Young and another male appeared to be in an argument with other people at the bar.

“When the situation got physical, the footage shows one man slamming his drink in another man’s face. Seconds later, the same man can be seen throwing an elbow that connects flush.”

When it looked like the altercation was calming down, Young appeared to get hit with a punch that knocked him to the ground.

Here’s the clip:


The Houston Police Dept. were called onto the scene by the bar owner, who told cops he was hit by a drink and one elbow. TMZ reports that officers said the owner told them the situation began over a “conversation about race and turned physical once he asked the patrons to leave.”

No arrests were made, nor did the bar owner press charges. Young has not commented on the situation.

Young is a legendary collegiate quarterback, who attended the University of Texas for two seasons. He led the Longhorns to a national title in 2005 when he threw for 267 yards, ran for 200 yards and scored three rushing touchdowns in a 41-38 win over USC in the BCS Championship Game.

The Tennessee Titans selected Young with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2006 draft. He was named Offensive Rookie of the Year in his first season and was a two-time Pro Bowl selection in six NFL seasons.
