Justin Hunter might only suffer a slap on the wrist after all

Justin Hunter the former Tennessee Vols wide out was released today on bond from a fight that occurred on July 3rd. There were reports that Hunter reportedly stabbed and cut a person, but according to ESPN.com, that is not the case.  

Commonwealth’s Attorney Wendy Alexander alleged Hunter started the fight on July 3 when he interrupted a conversation a man was having with someone else. After they spoke, Hunter punched the man in the face twice, she said. Alexander said multiple people then began fighting. Once the bar was cleared, Alexander said, the man whom Hunter originally punched was bent over and spitting out blood on the sidewalk, where Hunter “sucker-punched” him again before hopping into a waiting vehicle.

The man suffered a broken jaw and a cracked tooth as a result of the fight and was taken to a hospital because he might have suffered internal injuries, Alexander said. Nobody else has been charged in the incident, although Alexander said Hunter’s celebrity as a professional athlete made him easier to identify. A warrant for Hunter’s arrest was issued on Friday, and after Virginia Beach police contacted Titans security personnel, Hunter arranged to turn himself in Monday.

Hunter will likely get a slap on the wrist for this incident, if his friends step up and take responsibility. We will see how it plays out, so stay tuned.
