The former running back LeGarrette Blount is being investigated by police after a video was released showing him throwing punches during a brawl at youth football.
According to TMZ, the brawl went down after a 12-year-old-and-under game in Gilbert, Arizona.
“Cops tell us they were called to the scene shortly after 7 PM “in relation to multiple reports of adults fighting during a youth football game.”
“We’re told, though, the fight had concluded by the time officers arrived. No injuries were reported.
Police say they are investigating the incident and have described Blount as “an involved party.”
Here’s a clip of the video.

And here’s the full brawl.
Blunt has since apologized for his involvement in the fight.
Blount issued a mea culpa for his role in the fight on Monday evening … apologizing to his players and the parents on his team — “and also to the players and parents on the other team.”
“As a leader, coach, father and a role model I understand my actions are unacceptable,” he added. “I hope and pray for your understanding and forgiveness and plan to continue to be a positive impact in the lives of our youth.”
Blount did say in his statement he believes there’s more to the story than the footage shows … but he explained, “Regardless of that, I take full responsibility for my part in it and for putting myself in this situation.”
