Cody Latimer, a wide receiver for the Denver Broncos, was reportedly involved in a scuffle outside of a strip club that resulted in him being pepper sprayed and his uncle knocked out, according to a report on TMZ.com.
The incident occurred outside of a strip club in a suburb of Dayton, OH. Latimer is a Dayton native.
TMZ said it obtained a video that shows a man it identified as Latimer slapping a bouncer outside of the club. The incident began, according to TMZ, when Latimer, his uncle, and a friend tried to enter the club but had an argument over the dress code.
The video, according to TMZ, shows Latimer slapping a bouncer, who pepper sprays the NFL player. The video also supposedly shows Latimer’s uncle lunging at the bouncer, but the bouncer throws a punch and knocks him out.
TMZ said it spoke to Latimer, who said he was involved in the scuffle but was trying to diffuse the situation.
The incident occurred sometimes in February. Police, according to TMZ, were never called.
Latimer was drafted in the second round of the 2014 draft and won a Super Bowl in 2016. For his career, he’s caught 16 passes for 158 yards and a touchdown.
