Michigan wide receiver Csont’e York was arrested on July 18 after allegedly assaulting a man outside a bar in Ann Arbor. On Tuesday, Ann Arbor police released a surveillance video that allegedly shows York brutally sucker-punching the victim.
According to MLive.com, the man York hit suffered a broken jaw and lost a tooth. The police report states that the victim’s jaw, which was broken in three places, needed to be wired shut and that he temporarily needed a breathing tube.
