Ravens rookie receiver Tandon Doss stopped for a burger at Five Guys before playing in Thursday night’s preseason game against the Redskins. He ended up playing hero to a man who was getting attacked inside the restaurant.
Doss wrote about the incident on Twitter, saying, “Jus had to break up a fight at five guys. Baltimore is too ratchet!!!”
After the game against the Redskins, reporters asked Doss about his Twitter posts, and Doss expanded on what happened.
“I saw somebody start fighting, and I broke it up,” Doss said. “That’s all it was to me. . . . I mean, it was two dudes on one. I was trying to help the situation out. I broke it up.”
Doss may have saved the man’s life: According to Baltimore police, two former Five Guys employees attacked the manager with a knife, and the manager had to be treated for a cut on his chin.
The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Doss said after the game that he was just doing what he thought was right.
“I saw the guy on the ground bleeding, and I saw a guy on top hitting him,” he said. “So I stopped it.”
A fourth-round draft pick from Indiana, Doss had some people on Twitter hailing him as a hero and others telling him it was stupid to get into the middle of a potentially dangerous situation. Doss told the critics he’d never just stand by and watch someone get attacked.
“I’m not gunna sit there and let someone get jumped idk where ur from but we don’t do that in Indy,” Doss wrote.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh said the first he heard of it was when reporters questioned him about it after the game.
“I’m not on Twitter,” he said. “I’ll be looking into that.”
