The Guy Involved In Brawl That Nearly Took The Eye Of Oklahoma WR Spencer Jones Speaks Out: ‘They Gave Us No Options’

The old saying is true: nothing good happens in a piss-soaked bathroom of an Oklahoma campus bar after midnight.

Further evidence of this fundamental truth was released to the internet last Friday, when footage surfaced of Oklahoma wide receiver Spencer Jones suffering a beat down in the bathroom at Norman’s Logies on the Corner.

The genesis of the altercation is still murky, but Jones’ lawyer Woody Glass claimed Jones was “trying to be a peacekeeper.” Nothing says keep the peace like telling a stranger to “get the fuck out of here.”

“He was trying to de-escalate that situation,” Glass told The Daily. “But unfortunately, it wasn’t de-escalated despite his best efforts, and he became the victim of this vicious assault you’ve seen.”

Jones’ injuries were severe. The All-Big 12 Academic First Team selection underwent a four-hour outpatient operation Tuesday, February 16 in a successful effort to rebuild his left orbital bone.

“Dr. Brooks came out of that surgery saying he’s extraordinarily lucky at this point, that he’s lucky he didn’t lose the eye altogether,” Glass said. “And so he was able to do some things surgically to rebuild that orbital socket and thinks everything is eventually going to come back to normal, but it’s going to take a while for him to fully recover.”

Braden Brown, the dude in the beanie who locked up with Jean Jacket Guy, spoke out on Twitter about claiming that they were forced to utilize their years of MMA training because Spencer and his friend “gave us no options unfortunately.”

Spencer played in all 11 games for OU on special teams and won the Peter Mortell Holder of the Year Award, recognizing the best place holder in college football.

There’s no way he’ll get heckled about this when OU plays Texas.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
