I have a serious question: Is this typical of what happens in men’s restrooms in bars? My only experience is with ladies’ restrooms in bars and clubs, which are, after a certain point in the night, havens of shared lip gloss, lavish compliments, and declarations of our deep and abiding love for one another.
Here, we see video of Oklahoma wide receiver Spencer Jones, who got into a fight in the men’s room at a bar in Norman, Oklahoma, and is now recovering from surgery to save his eye.
It’s hard to tell from the video what started the altercation, but it turns out that the guy sitting above Jones’ head had 10 years of mixed martial arts training, if you believe the rumors circulating on Twitter. What I don’t normally do. BUT, it just goes to show that you never know who you are fighting with.
Jones hired attorney Woody Glass to represent him and nearly lost his left eye as a result of the fight, according to the Daily OU:
Jones was detained from surgery until the swelling around his eye subsided, Glass said. Norman’s Dr. Perry Brooks, whose website says he specializes in facial reconstruction, performed a four-hour outpatient operation on Tuesday, February 16, in which he reconstructed Jones’s left orbital socket.
“Dr. Brooks came out of that surgery saying that he is extraordinarily lucky right now, that he is lucky that he did not lose his eye completely,” Glass said. It will return to normal over time, but it will take a while for it to fully recover. “
According to Glass, Jones was the “peacemaker” in this altercation, but his multiple directives to “get out of here” to his attacker seem to contradict that narrative. Either way, both the police and the lawyers are now involved, and someone (or many people) is likely to be hit with an assault and battery charge, if not worse.
It probably says something about the state of the American man that a bunch of guys just pulled out their phones and started recording the fight, rather than trying to break it up, but I’m still bowled over by the fact that the definitely pee-soaked floor was no more. an impediment to wrestling in this situation.
At the very least, the thought of someone dragging you onto the floor of a men’s bathroom, leaving you covered in God knows what, should be enough to get men to observe your words in late-night bathroom discussions.
