Mike Pouncy Accused Of Assault: Updated


Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey and his brother Maurkice Pouncey have been accused of assaulting a man at a Soutbeach night club. The victim alleges that he sustained a cut that required ten stitches on his face.

The case is interesting because no charges have been filed and the victim, Ricky Vasquez is claiming that he was “jumped by four bouncers and the Pouncey twins”. He took to Twitter to announce the beating and name the suspects. Seems a little more like an appeal for public opinion. He alleges that the issues stemmed from his own sexual orientation and that one of the Pouncey’s used a gay slur towards him.

Pouncey of course was one of those named in the Jonathan Martin case. Mike Pouncey will also miss the next three months following hip surgery.

Miami Police are investigating the incident.

Both Pouncey’s celebrate their birthday at the Cameo club yearly. Last season the twins made headlines when they wore “Free Hernandez” hats.

UPDATE: Sources have told local news outlets that the Pouncey brothers were not involved. The police are still investigating the incident. If that turns out to be true, the police need to investigate why the accuser publicly named the Pouncey twins.

    B.S…I am sick and tired of reading negative stuff about Pouncey and am tired of him giving the Dolphins a bad name…no one player is bigger than the team….especially a trouble maker…Put Larsen at center NOW and let him learn on the job
    ..
    Imagine…1 1/2 weeks since surgery and out partying…still so immature..Trade him when healthy!!!!!

    Evidence shows they were not involved…. BUT, WFT???!!!! Isn’t Pouncy recovering from surgery??? Why is he out and about!! At a night club??? WFT?? He’s only about 2 weeks out of surgery… Rehab, rehab, and more rehab.. He needs to heal fast to come back ASAP!!! If he’s out clubbing, he probably adding more games he will miss.. I don’t get it… Hes in the Bully report, he’s possibly got info on a murder, wearing the “Free Hernandez” hats… And now this???
    WITHOUT A DOUBT THIS KID IS THE BIGGEST IDIOT IN THE NFL!! Great player, terrible decisions.. JUST PLAIN STUPIDITY!!! Suppose to be a proffessional?? He needs to grow up.. And grow up FAST!!! Dumb Ass!!!

    I even have to doubt the loftiness with which we hoist his playing abilities. We need to cut him and our losses and continue the build. And Brian, are you doing the charity leagues again this year?

    Miami needs to play Tyler Larson or Sam Brenner at center.if either shows talent, trade pouncey. miami might be able to get a first round pick for pouncey.
