According to a Las Vegas police report, a video confirms that Levi Jones was attacked by a group during Sunday night’s incident at a Palms Casino gaming table.
The report says that the video shows the suspect, Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter, “started the fight with a closed fist,” to Jones’ face and then “several unidentified males punched the victim.”
Porter was cited for misdemeanor battery after Jones was treated for facial cuts in what one source has described as “a brutal attack,” on the Bengals left tackle.
The police report said that according to Jones, Porter approached him while he was gambling “to fight,” and that he and Porter have had words during games.
Police said Friday that the video has been sent to the district attorney’s office and won’t be released until next week.
Jones also told police that he lost two necklaces in an incident as bizarre as the fight. A source said Thursday night that the two chains were turned in anonymously to the Palms.
