Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones has conceded that he was in the "wrong place at the wrong time" but has disputed the facts of a recent TMZ report stating that he was injured by a champagne bottle-wielding stripper during a fight aboard a party bus.
"I'm going to take responsibility, I was in the wrong place at the wrong time. There was no altercation. Nothing wrong. I did nothing wrong but I take responsibility for being in the wrong place at the wrong time," Jones said on 105.7 The FAN in Baltimore on Tuesday. "Enough said, I apologized to my teammates and everybody, now lets go play football."
TMZ reported on Monday that Jones was hit in the head by a champagne bottle thrown by a stripper named Sweet Pea on a bus in Washington D.C. while celebrating teammate Bryant McKinnie's birthday on Sunday night, a stripper hit Jones in the head with a champagne bottle.
Sweet Pea denied throwing a bottle at Jones on Twitter and wrote that she wasn't a stripper.
"I would like to clear up the fact that I'm a waitress & the girls on the pic aren't a bunch of strippers," she said. "Jacoby & I had a verbal confrontation & that was it!!! I never hit him with a bottle & I wish ppl would stop spreading lies on the internet.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh addressed the report on Tuesday.
Harbaugh said "not very impressed with report" on Jones. "I'm disappointed in that sense. "
