This is a very interesting lawsuit, so if you are confused by the end we are sorry. According to the Tennessean, a man by the name of Dante Satterfield is suing wide receiver Tajae Sharpe for reportedly whooping him after the Titans drafted Corey Davis.
Satterfield made a comment to Sharpe according to his allegations and Sharpe along with another Titans player offensive lineman Sebastian Tretola, took him in a back ally and put in work. Sattefield says Tretola acted as a look out while Sharpe beat him badly.
Dante Satterfield, claims he was out at Tin Roof in Nashville on April 28 while the NFL Draft was going on. Satterfield allegedly told Titans wide receiver Tajae Sharpe that the team’s selection of Corey Davis in the first round meant Sharpe was going to lose playing time.
“The alleged victim who is named as a plaintiff in the lawsuit came to the Midtown Hills precinct (Wednesday) and met with the investigation team and we do have an open investigation taking place,” Nashville police spokesman Don Aaron said.
“The claims are ridiculous,” Sharpe’s agent, Blaine Roche, told The Tennessean. “Tajae unequivocally denies any and all involvement and he looks forward to vindicating his name, clearing his name of any and all wrongdoing here.”
A Titans spokesman told The Tennessean on Wednesday they were “aware of the lawsuit.”
Satterfield filed the $500,000 suit for damages based on allegations of assault and battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and civil conspiracy.
“Through this brutal assault, Defendants caused Plaintiff to suffer physical trauma, emotional distress, humiliation, and further caused him to incur expenses in the form of time and money to treat his physical, mental, and emotional injuries,” the lawsuit reads.
The crazy thing to me is he waited until yesterday to file a report with the police? This is a wild story, someone is telling the truth and someone is lying. It will be interesting to see what happens.
