The New York Jets 2017-18 season and their players are already making headlines, but I don’t think this kind of notoriety they’re looking for with video surfacing off who looks to be Darron Lee having to get pulled back by teammate Leonard Williams at a festival of some sort.
The Twitter user who uploaded the video(s) of what looks to be Lee having to be restrained and pulled away by his teammate reportedly said the incident started after the former Ohio State Buckeye was in some sort of incident with a woman before Williams intervened and pulled him away.
Via Larry Brown Sports:
“According to the witness who uploaded the videos, Lee had had been aggressive with a woman and reportedly grabbed her, prior to Williams’ intervention.”
Here’s the video:
The Jets have also confirmed that it was indeed both Lee and Williams in the video, according to Benjamin Allbright.
This is obviously not a good look for Lee and the Jets, but there is still a lot more to this story that we don’t know right now, so we’ll have to see how it all plays out.
Lee was a first-round pick for the Jets in 2016.
