Jets defensive lineman Leonard Williams was filmed breaking up a fight between a man who appears to be teammate Darron Lee and a woman at the Governors Ball Music Festival in New York City last night.
Per Twitter’s @gunnerpunner, who filmed the incident, the man in question was shouting at the woman and starting to “manhandle her.” Though bystanders were reportedly trying to help, the man was “aggressive” and did not stop until Williams appeared—calmly blocking the man before finally picking him up and moving him aside.
Video shows Williams first standing between the man and woman and then picking him up and moving him away:
Williams was seen at the festival hanging out with Lee and other teammates, including quarterback Bryce Petty, earlier in the day. He posted a picture of himself and Lee on his Instagram story, in which Lee seems to be wearing the exact same clothing as the man in the video:
A Jets spokesperson declined to comment.
Update (3:40 p.m. ET): From a Jets spokesperson—“We are aware of the reports, we are taking them seriously and we are looking into the specifics of the situation. We will have no further comment at this time.”
