According to the Gainesville Sun, former University of Florida and NFL quarterback Doug Johnson has had a sworn complaint alleging that he assaulted a man after the LSU-Florida football game filed against him. The accuser, 28-year-old Joe Cappelletti, claims that he and his friends were twice attacked by a group of Florida fans that included Doug Johnson. From the Sun:

Cappelletti told The Sun after the incident that he was walking down West University Avenue near St. Augustine Church around 9:30 p.m. when two women and three men in a rickshaw pulled up. They started yelling at Cappelletti's group, and one pushed Jamie Davis, Cappelletti's girlfriend. Cappelletti grabbed one of the men and they tussled and exchanged some words before everyone dispersed.

His group crossed the street, Cappelletti said, and the same three men jumped out of the bushes and attacked them.

Cappelletti suffered a broken nose and numerous facial fractures. Additional complaints were filed against 39-year-old Andrew Greer and 35-year-old Megan Cranston. However, an attorney representing Johnson, Greer and Cranston claim that his clients were acting in self-defense.

My clients suffered an unprovoked attack in front of a church at 1800 W. University Avenue on October 6, 2012, during which Doug Johnson was knocked unconscious. They, and the other members of their party, left the scene in an effort to provide a safer environment for their respective wives and girlfriends. They were pursued by their original attackers, and they lawfully defended themselves when attacked for a second time


So who the hell knows what actually happened. All we really know is that a bunch of people who are way too old to be getting into fistfights after college football games got into a fistfight after a college football game, and one of them used to be a shitty quarterback.
