Kyle Hadala the Florida native who reportedly punched Dallas Goedert in a club was interviewed by TMZ Sports. Hadala says he was just defending his friend who was getting harassed.
“They picked out my smaller colleague from the group, got in his face, and made very threatening remarks toward his personal well-being,” Hadala told TMZ. “Then one of his crew told my other colleague, and I quote, ‘You’re just a fat f–king p–sy. I’ll beat the s–t out of you.'”
“They were extremely aggressive and disrespectful,” he said.
“I protected my friend and then was ambushed by five to seven individuals that punched, kicked, threw beer bottles, etc., trying to cause me bodily harm which I received medical treatment at the hospital for my injuries the next day,” Hadala told TMZ.
Hadala claims he was beaten by five to seven men after punching Goedert. He claims he was punched, kicked and hit with a bottle. He suffered the injuries above. He also obtained an attorney.
Hadala was arrested and charged with simple assault, a Class 1 misdemeanor, because the NFL player didn’t suffer any “serious bodily injury” as a result of the punch.
