Josh Morgan the newest member of the Chicago Bears wide receiving core was arrested on Sunday in a popular D.C. nightclub according to News 4 in D.C.
Kenneth Johnson told News4’s Pat Collins he was working as a valet driver around 1 a.m. Sunday when a large SUV pulled up to Cities Restaurant and Lounge just off K Street downtown. Josh Morgan, who signed with the Chicago Bears last week, got out with two women. Johnson said he looked at the women, which apparently upset Morgan.
“I was just standing there and I looked up, and in the blink of an eye he just punched me right in the mouth,” Johnson said. “Instantly my mouth is bleeding profusely, just blood coming out all over my jacket and stuff. I was scared. I didn’t know what to do.”
Johnson told Collins he didn’t do anything to provoke Morgan.
“It’s not fair for anybody to go around punching people just doing their job,” Johnson said. “I didn’t say anything disrespectful to the lady. I didn’t look at her or sexualize her in any way. I just looked in the direction and I got hit.”
Police took Morgan into custody inside Cities and charged him with simple assault, Collins reported. Morgan was released on a police citation promising to appear in court at a later date.
“We are aware of Josh Morgan’s presence at a weekend incident in Washington, D.C.,” read a statement from the Chicago Bears. “We are currently gathering information to learn more about the circumstances surrounding the event.”
