Joey Porter and Bengals All-Pro Levi Jones Rumble in Vegas
The Big Lead came up with a huge find — apparently 6’5″ 305lb OL Levi Jones of the Bengals and 6’3″ 250lb LB Joey Porter of the Dolphins got into a rumble in Las Vegas. Norm Clarke of Vegas Confidential explains:
A fist fight between two NFL players broke out in the Palms casino on Sunday night, sources said. Joey Porter, an All-Pro linebacker who recently left the Pittsburgh Steelers to join the Miami Dolphins, brawled with Cincinnati Bengals offensive lineman Levi Jones, at about 6 p.m. at a blackjack table in the casino.Jones, who suffered scratches, told Las Vegas police he would be filing charges against Porter. Sources said there has been bad blood between the two.
Of course we all know how the whole thing started — Porter’s pit bull attacked Levi for no reason.
UPDATE: Porter has been cited for misdemeanor battery which apparently means a police officer saw him hit Jones.
