Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno was back in Athens, Georgia recently, the location of the campus of the University of Georgia. Moreno now faces a claim that he knocked out a Georgia freshman on Saturday night at a bar fight there, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The alleged victim, Stephen Anderson, admits he was drunk and can’t identify the three men that Anderson claims jumped him.
Anderson’s friends reportedly are “certain” that Moreno, a first-round pick in the 2009 draft, punched Anderson in the face as he was leaving the Bourbon Street Bar.
The investigation is ongoing, and charges have not yet been filed.
If he’s ultimately charged and convicted (or if he pleads guilty), Moreno will be subject to discipline under the league’s personal conduct policy.
