After the viral bar fight involving Oklahoma football player Spencer Jones last month, the Norman Police Department announced in a press release on Thursday that no charges will be filed.
The incident took place on February 13th and the investigation was completed on March 9th.
Cleveland County District Attorney Greg Mashburn said in the release, “We have carefully considered the entirety of the circumstances surrounding the incident including a previous altercation between the parties and the actions that led up to the physical fight caught on camera by a bystander. My office has decided that no criminal charges are appropriate as this appears to be a mutual combat situation in which both parties voluntarily engaged in a fist fight.”
After the fight it was reported that Jones nearly lost his eye in the scuffle. The four-hour outpatient surgery took place on February 16 and had to rebuild Jones’ left orbital socket.
But Jones’ roommate Joe Castiglione Jr, the son of OU’s Athletic Director Joe Castiglione, said punches were thrown outside of the restroom with another person, prior to the bathroom altercation, but none were by Jones.
“Spencer and his friend used the restroom after breaking up the fight,” Castiglione Jr. said on Twitter. “As they were leaving Walker came back in the restroom with his brother. This is around where the video begins.”
Spencer Jones is from Nashville and played one season at Liberty before transferring to Oklahoma.
