A few hours before the Ravens played the Redskins in their preseason game last Thursday, Baltimore rookie receiver Tandon Doss was hanging out at Five Guys restaurant, presumably filling his intestines with greasy burgers and fries.

But then, Doss saw two men fighting another man, and apparently, he felt like he had to get involved. Even if it was gameday, and even if he didn’t know why the men were fighting each other.

"I mean, it was two dudes on one," Doss told the Baltimore Sun. "I was trying to help the situation out. I broke it up. ... I saw the guy on the ground bleeding, and I saw a guy on top hitting him. So I stopped it."

Doss officially broke the news on his Twitter account, and when someone asked him why he had behaved like a good Samaritan on game day, he responded, “wat day it is I'm not gonna sit there and let someone get jumped. [I don't know] where ur from but we don't do that in Indy."

Doss, though, is lucky. According to police, the two attackers were former employees of the Five Guys, and one of them had a knife and tried to injure the restaurant’s manager. The manager is OK, and the two suspected attackers are being sought.

But we’ll leave you with what Doss wrote in his own words after he played hero for the day that sums up this whole affair. “Jus had to break up a fight at five guys. Baltimore is too ratchet!!!"

It's about time some good stories come out about some of the players.

Nice, crawl all over the guy for being a good guy. It's nice to see a player do something good for a change instead of being the guy jumping the other one or stabbing. Looks like his mom raised him right.

He's not winning any points with Ray Lewis with this type of behavior. Didn't Ray teach you you are suppoed to hold the one guy while the other two stab him to death?

How is this a set up story? Maybe if it was Ray Lewis who stopped a knife fight then i could see it being a set up story..But not for some no name rookie..

I would have stepped in as well.  It's called "doing the right thing".  We'd all be alot better off if everyone lived that way.

My comment was to show that even with a good heart, and being a great person, he cares so little of how he represents himself. Would he speak that way if he was speaking to the President? No, he can speak English, however once in a public forum, he wishes to be known as ghetto trash. WWWHHHHAATTTT, YYYEEEAAAHHH, AIIIIGGGHHTTT, makes you famous in da hood. Being well spoken and hard working makes you someone in society.

candy, are  you kidding me? youre clearly just another arrogant p.o.s. the guy might have saved the manager of this restaurant, and risked his own life, because if you couldnt read, the guy had a knife which he easily could have used. to say anything but a positive remark about this incident is retarded and i cant grasp why you, along with anyone else, would try and twist this story. Its plain sight.

How is a city too ratchet, let alone ratchet? I could have sworn the only time the word ratchet came up was when I am looking through my toolbox, or maybe a video game.
