It’s usually not a good thing if your team ends up on TMZ Sports, as the Western Kentucky football program found out last night. Yesterday, TMZ Sports obtained footage of a frat house fight including several members of the Western Kentucky football team and an alumni member of the Pike fraternity. In the video, you can see the football players tackle and begin stomping on the alum before running away.
According to the police report, the alumni member was called to the house by a current member who said “several football players were outside” ready to fight. The alumnus came to the house and told the guys to leave, which is when he was pushed against a fence and assaulted. According to a current fraternity member who tried to break up the fight, the attackers allegedly also had guns and a box cutter. The police report includes a statement from one of the football players, who says the group went to the frat house that night to get revenge from an incident at the Pike house the night before.
Yikes. You can watch the footage below:
