Video released of Michigan WR Csont’e York knocking out man

Police have released video of Michigan WR Csont’e York knocking out a 23-year old man outside Scorekeepers Bar in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  According to the police report, the man’s jaw was broken in three places. The Sophomore was suspended by head coach Brady Hoke for what was called ‘failing to meet team standards’.  Was this simply being at the wrong place at the wrong time or an issue of discipline and poor judgement?

Mlive reported the incident between York and the man who was taking down by one blow. York, 20, who is wearing a fishing cap in the video, and his teammate Da’Mario Jones, 19, apparently got into a confrontation with the victim and his friend because York believed the victim bumped into him.

There was also some sort of argument about hockey and football, according to the report.

A witness described for police what happened after he and the victim left Scorekeepers.

“A group of people were arguing about football and hockey. Everyone was talking … crap. … (The victim) was jaw-jacking. All (of a) sudden, the guy just came up and cold clocked (the victim).”
