Panthers LB Jon Beason is in the middle of a civil trial brought by a man who’s suing Beason for allegedly hitting him at a strip club in 2009 after the man previously had accused Beason of snorting cocaine.

On Tuesday, Beason testified that he really, really, really wanted to hit Gregory Frye because he was so enraged – and, in fact, he even tried to hit him – but ultimately didn’t touch him.

“There’s no way I hit him,” Beason said, via the Charlotte Observer.

Closing arguments between the two sides’ lawyers are scheduled for today, and then the jury (made up of eight women and four men) will deliberate and deliver a decision. More from the article:

The jury must also weigh testimony from a detective who said a criminal assault charge was not prosecutable because of a lack of witnesses and Frye's lack of credibility. The jury was not allowed to hear the detective describe an interview with a woman who said Frye had once plotted to provoke a fight with a pro basketball player so Frye could sue. …

Beason said he was "blown away" when friends told him at the strip club about Frye's allegations of cocaine use. Then, he said, he got angry and went to confront Frye.

"Your reputation is all you have. Your name is all you have," Beason testified.

That’s when Beason said he and Frye bumped chests and then Beason went to hit Frye. But his personal chef held his arm and the punch did not connect. Beason also admitted he shouldn’t have tried to hit Frye in the first place.

UPDATE 5:20 p.m. EST: No verdict was announced Wednesday, per Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer. Court is in recess until Thursday morning.

Woman, remarkable site put up. Especially the home will likely be the domain's RSS feed?

You're right what I posted was stupid.  I actually agree with the comments from AIRFORCE1.

I am just so sick and tired of these kind of articles.  I wish there was some real football news.

Hopefully nothing will come of this. Beason should have clearly turned the other cheek when some random nobody accuses him of cocain abbuse but the fact he never physically touched him other than a chest bump should not warrent a payoff. It sounds like the Gregory Frye is looking to cash in the easy way by suing celebrities. Hopefully the jury and judge will see this as well and drop the case. Beason should turn around and sue this jackass for defamation of character.

Sounds to me that there were witnesses to what happened, but they were all on Beason's side.   As for Chargers-Lt#1's comment;  It was very juvenile and rather homophobic.  Do the world a favor and grow up.

Really?  That was the best you had Chargers_LT#1?  That was both weak and incoherent rambling.

What the hell is up with football players and strippers?

Obviously not much is up with Jon Beason and the strippers.  Beason was obviously more interested in the male patrons in the club.  Beason and Frye bumped chests and then his male personal chef held his arm.  Notice how all the touching Beason is giving and receiving is with guys at the strip club.  RED FLAG and WARNING BELLS

Sounds like Beason may be one of those crotch grabbers at the bottom of the pile on the football field.  Beason should just come out of the closet.


I can guarantee that only the female strippers chests are bumping my chest when I am at a strip club.
