Report: Mike and Maurkice Pouncey allegedly involved in bar altercation
Mike and Maurkice Pouncey were allegedly involved in a bar altercation on Friday night.
Dolphins lineman Mike Pouncey and Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey are twins and, as such, celebrate their birthday every year together. Their party this year reportedly involved an altercation the police are looking into.
According to the Palm Beach New-Times, the Miami Beach Police Department is looking into an alleged altercation at the Cameo Nightclub in Miami Beach.
The Pounceys held their birthday party there on Friday night and a man named Ricky Vasquez alleges he was assaulted by the brothers.
"There was an incident that occurred at Cameo last night at 4:20 a.m., where an alleged assault took place," Miami Beach Police Sgt. Bobby Hernandez told the New Times. "We have not confirmed it's the Pouncey brothers that are the subjects, but we are going to have detectives contacting the victims to investigate further."
An Instagram promotional flier posted by Cameo confirms the brothers were holding the party there:
If the name of the club sounds familiar, it should: the Pounceys previously showed up to their brothers birthday bash wearing "Free Hernandez" hats to show solidarity for their former Florida teammate Aaron Hernandez.
That went over ... poorly.
Pro Football Talk reports the "preliminary evidence indicates the Pounceys were not involved in the alleged assault."
Vazquez tweeted at 4:53 a.m. he "just got jumped by 4 bouncers and the Pouncey Twins at Cameo" adding that he planned "to press charges."
