Video has surfaced following the alleged altercation between a woman and Florida's Caleb Brantley.

Earlier today, the Tampa Bay Timesobtained video following the alleged violent altercation between the complainant, Chelsea Austin, and Florida defensive lineman Caleb Brantley that occurred earlier this month, according to Austin's attorneys.

According to the Tampa Bay Times:

The video begins with one woman speaking to Brantley and his friends, who are off camera. Witnesses told Brantley's attorney, Huntley Johnson, that the woman propositioned Brantley for sex earlier in the evening, Johnson said Tuesday morning.

That woman and two others then leave the scene after the police concluded their on-the-scene investigation. Johnson said eyewitnesses have told him that the middle woman is Austin.

Here is the aformentioned video:

The State Attorney's Office is currently considering whether or not to pursue a misdemeanor battery charge against Brantley.

The initial Gainesville Police Department report of the incident said that Austin left the scene with her friends, but the subsequent report said Brantley knocked her unconscious.

According to Austin's attorney per the Tampa Bay Times, Austin was knocked to the ground and suffered injuries that will require "extensive medical treatment."

Brantley has been projected to go in the second or third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, according to experts.
