The manager of a downtown Cincinnati bar says Bengals linebacker Rey Maualuga punched him after being told to leave early Sunday morning.
FOX 19 in Cincinnati reports that Sammy Laham, manager of the bar Luxe, says that Maualuga responded to being told it was time for his group to go by punching the messenger.
“One of them said something at which point I repeated myself, that they had to leave, and then Rey Maualuga got up, took three or four steps and punched me in the face, more noticeably the eye, then my nose started to bleed,” Laham said. “Then security diffused the situation.”
