LeGarrette Blount involved in fight at youth football game

Written by Tony Ghaul

Former NFL RB LeGarrette Blount was involved in a fight at a youth football game on Saturday. Following a game between Blount’s team, GCYFC Gators, and the Chandler Elite Bears, the players exchanged customary handshakes on the field.

A drone showed footage of a group of people talking at midfield. Blount and others eventually walked toward their team, but another video appears to show him subsequently sprinting toward the opposite sideline. After a verbal altercation, Blount allegedly threw two punches at another man before getting held back.

Police officers responded to the scene after receiving “multiple reports of adults fighting during a youth football game.” The situation had de-escalated by the time authorities arrived. Blount is characterized as an “an involved party.”

The 35-year-old Blount last played in the NFL in 2018. He spent nine seasons in the league and was a three-time Super Bowl champion, winning a pair with the New England Patriots and then helping defeat the Patriots in Super Bowl LII as a member of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Blount took to Twitter tonight about the situation.
