We are learning new information about the incident that led Jaguars DT Terrance Knighton to have eye surgery Sunday.
WOKV obtained a police report detailing a fight at Pure Nightclub on Phillips Highway.
An off-duty officer who was working security at the club says he was alerted to a disturbance inside the club at 1:30am Sunday. After he arrived, the officer witnessed club security personnel escorting several subjects out of the club due to fighting.
Knighton and his friend, known as "Spoon", were involved in a fight with several people inside the club.
Security personnel broke up the fight and rushed everyone outside the club.
The police report says that while outside the club, Knighton and "Spoon" repeatedly made threats to shoot people after having been brought outside. The officer says it took several minutes to control both men and get them off the property. Knighton's agent is denying that he made any threats to shoot anyone.
Both Knighton and "Spoon" refused to leave so club promoters had to physically force them into their vehicle, an orange Dodge Challenger.
The police report does not say specifically how Knighton sustained the eye injury, but his agent spoke to the Florida Times-Union, and says he was hit in the back of the head with a bottle, and in the eye.
The officer says Knighton appeared to have been drinking.
The report says the argument could have been about Knighton and "Spoon" disrespecting a woman.
No one was arrested and the report does not name anyone other than Knighton and "Spoon".
The Jaguars released this statement after the police report was released:
“We are aware of the incident report regarding Terrance Knighton. We hold all of our players to a high standard of behavior, as does the National Football League. We’re concerned about this matter, and it is being handled internally. We’ll have no further comment at this time.”
We have reached out to Terrance Knighton and "Spoon", who we believe to be Tommie Weatherspoon, via Twitter. We also reached out to the manager at the Pure Nightclub.
