Earlier this week, Carolina Panthers offensive lineman Taylor Hearn was involved in a street fight. According to a report from TMZ, the incident occurred in Augusta, Georgia on Thursday night.
Hearn, who stands at 6-foot-4, 315 pounds can be seen arguing with several men outside the bar. After what looks to be a verbal argument, several men engaged in a physical altercation.
Eventually, Hearn and another man come to blows. The former Clemson star was hit with a straight right hand and appears to be knocked out for a brief second before he gets back up to start fighting again.
TMZ obtained video of the incident.
WARNING: Graphic content.
According to the report from TMZ, police were called to the scene. Neither Hearn nor the other man in the alleged altercation were arrested.
While he wasn’t arrest following the confrontation, he likely left with a bruised ego.
Hearn went undrafted in the 2018 NFL Draft before signing with the Carolina Panthers. In his rookie season, Hearn played in four games for the team – protecting star quarterback Cam Newton.
He won a national title with the Clemson Tigers during the 2016 season in which he started every game.
We’ll have to wait and see if the NFL or the Panthers address the incident.
