From the Dallas Morning News:
Police cited NFL quarterback Vince Young in the assault of a man who disrespected the University of Texas Longhorns inside a Dallas strip club early Sunday morning.
Surveillance video shows the former University of Texas star and Club Onyx employee Creiton Kinchen, 45, exchanging words for a few minutes before the scuffle in a small, crowded office area about 3:30 a.m.
At one point Kinchen, who police believe is from Oklahoma, can be seen flashing an upside-down “Hook ’em Horns” hand sign at Young.
“There was a conversation going on between Mr. Young and several people inside the office,” said Dallas police Lt. Craig Miller, acting commander of the Crimes Against Persons Division. “One of the [club employees] makes a gesture contradictory to the University of Texas, the ‘Hook ’em’ sign upside down. This obviously made Mr. Young upset.”
Kinchen suffered a cut lip. Police believe alcohol was a factor in the feud.
Young, who was not arrested, faces up to a $500 fine on the Class C misdemeanor charge. The Houston native is entering his fifth season with the Tennessee Titans. Neither his Dallas attorney nor his agent returned messages seeking comment Sunday.
Titans Coach Jeff Fisher told The Tennessean on Sunday that the team was aware of the incident.
“Members of the organization have been in touch with Vince,” Fisher said. “At this point, we’re just gathering facts. I have nothing else to say about it. I can’t speculate, can’t go into detail. We’re just gathering facts. I’m sure we will have a lot more information over the next few days.”
By the time Dallas police were called to the club, Young was gone. But police said they were able to track him down and that he came to Jack Evans Police Headquarters and was cooperative in the investigation.
Young had arrived at the club with a couple other people minutes prior to the fight. He was in the private office to speak to club managers about “how he planned on spending his evening inside the club,” Miller said.
The Titans are scheduled to start a three-day mandatory mini-camp in Nashville today.
