Baltimore Ravens WR Jacoby Jones on Stripper Incident:'I Take Responsibility'

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones spoke for the first time since a stripper named Sweet Pea hit him on the head with a champagne bottle after the birthday celebration of Jones' teammate and Ravens left tackle Bryant McKinnie.

Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones has spoken for the first time since he figured in an incident with a stripper named Sweet Pea on September 23, the birthday of his teammate Bryant McKinnie.

Jones briefly addressed the issue on his radio show on 105.7 The Fan, per Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun.

"I'm going to take the responsibility that I was in the wrong place at the wrong time. There was no altercation. There's nothing wrong. I did nothing wrong but I take responsibility for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Enough said. I apologize to my teammates and everybody." 

TMZ reported about the incident in its aftermath. Some of the Ravens were in Washington D.C. to celebrate McKinnie's 34th birthday when a commotion broke out inside the bus just as the revelers just left the Opera Ultra Lounge at around three in the morning. 

Here are some details from TMZ:

"One eyewitness tells us he saw a bottle being swung at Jacoby Jones -- it connected with his head and hurt him. We're told an ambulance was called 'for a bleeding male' but he was not taken to the hospital.

"Our sources say a stripper named Sweet Pea is the one who hit Jacoby with a gigantic Ace of Spades bottle and this may have triggered the brawl. We're told the bottle smashed over his head and he was 'bleeding everywhere.'"

Ravens head coach John Harbaugh wasn't "very impressed" when the report came out. 

"Not very impressed, personally, with the report. It's not something we want to be known for. What do you want to be known for? Do you want to be known as a football player, or do you want to be known for that?"

Zrebiec adds Jones "refused treatment" for the head injury and was at the Ravens practice facility by Monday. There were no arrests made.

Jones is still recovering from a sprained knee which he suffered during Baltimore's season opener against the Denver Broncos on September 5 when he collided with rookie Brynden Trawick. 

He won't be playing on September 29 against the Buffalo Bills. 

The incident report filed with the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police department can be seen here.
