LeGarrette Blount: “I didn’t do anything wrong at all”

Buccaneers running back LeGarrette Blount insists the accusation that he orchestrated a beating of a man in September is completely false.

In an incident which took place in September but only came to light this week, a man who said he was beaten by two other men after accidentally hitting the mirror of a car accused Blount of orchestrating the beating. Blount’s lawyer called the accusation a “money grab,” and on Wednesday Blount said he did nothing wrong.



“In my mind, I didn’t do anything wrong at all,” Blount said. “I cooperated with the cops. I waited two and a half hours for the cops to come. I cooperated with them then. I had nothing to do with the whole altercation. I didn’t orchestrate anything. I didn’t make any suggestions for anything to happen.”



Blount said he hasn’t been distracted by the incident, or even thinking about it.



“Nah, it happened all the way back in September,” Blount said. “It’s just coming up now. I’ve been focused on football.”

    Step 1. Take responsibility for your actions.

    Can anybody else picture this guy saying, “Get em, beat that boy down.”

    Yup, me too.

    If this were a money grab, don’t you think the guy would go after someone with money? Like a Manning brother or Albert Haynesworth?

    Mr. Blount has no problem taking care of his own beat downs.
    This guy should be thankful Lagarrette let two other guys take care of this situation, he would’nt be awake yet if he did it himself. ; )

    So the so call victim thinks Blount is the Godfather or something?
    Order beatings at his request. Lol. Come on man!

    I believe him. The accuser’s story sounds a little bit far fetched.

“In my mind, I didn’t do anything wrong at all,” Blount said.

    Ehhh yeah, he may be telling the truth, but I don’t know if I care for the phrasing in that statement.

  11. worldwidebleater says: Dec 8, 2011 7:50 AM

    That’s not the LeGarrett Blount I know. He’s famous for exercising restraint.

    Perhaps you don’t understand how much money the undrafted and late round picks make. You don’t shake an athlete down for 20 million dollars when claiming an assault. I think the amount reported that the “victim” requested before was 60 grand, which is well in Blount’s range.

  13. cshearing says: Dec 8, 2011 7:57 AM

    Of course everyone automatically thinks he is guilty. He punched a guy once! He is evil!! Give me a break. Maybe he is guilty, but it does not sound like it right now.

  14. seneca1ss says: Dec 8, 2011 7:58 AM

    for some of you guys that love the NFL, why do you hate the players so much…………Jealous? You WANT him to be guilty

  15. iplaybad says: Dec 8, 2011 7:58 AM

    The police did not charge him. He was completely forthcoming with law enforcement and the Bucs. Now the D Bag accuser is unsatisfied that he was not paid for his first extortion attempt.

    Non story.

  16. salmen76 says: Dec 8, 2011 8:10 AM

    I don’t believe Blount did anything wrong. The victim hit their mirror of their car and drove off. Only a wus would just sit there and do nothing about it. Cops ain’t responsible for everything and they ain’t our daddy. In fact law enforcement agencies encourage citizens to defend themselves. It helps deter crime if the screw ups know the person they screwed over might just kick their butts. I wouldn’t have busted his windshield but i would have popped him right in the chops with a knuckle sandwich. But i wasn’t there and just maybe the drunk victim (he was intoxicated and he was the designated driver which is why he never dialed 911) got a smart mouth and that’s why they busted his windshiled. Remember in Thelma and Louise when Thelma was being raped and Louise saved her and they were going to leave then the pepertrator told Louise to suck his xxxx and so ahe shot and killed him. Well, that dued had it coming. Therefore the so called victim in this case had it coming too. Geaux Saints!

    The key phrase: “In my mind, I did nothing wrong.” Because that’s how they do it in his neck of the woods. It’s about respect. Moron!

  18. almighty1 says: Dec 8, 2011 8:26 AM

    I have this picture in my head of Blount standing on a platform holding a baton waving his arms about and shouting instruction. Gimme a break… ‘orchestrating’ a fight.

  19. biggerballz says: Dec 8, 2011 8:31 AM

    If you read the story the guy hit his sisters car and just tried driving off. If he stopped and gave his insurance instead of trying to get away with a hit and run he wouldn’t be in the situation. HE GOT WHAT HE DESERVED. And yeah he is lucky it wasn’t blount or the guy may not of woken up.

  20. tatum064 says: Dec 8, 2011 8:32 AM

    Of course you didnt, your “crew” did. Just be glad they weren’t packing heat in the glove compartment…or it could’ve really been a “when keeping it real goes wrong” moment.

    NFL players get held up, shot at all the time, but obviously, the victims made a mistake and got took down. He should’ve dialed 9/11 anyway or rammed the car that blocked him – they could’ve gotten hurt much worse.

    =======================

    I have no idea what happened, and neither do you. Story does sound a little far fetched.

    But if you think it is beyond the realm of possibility that a rich athlete could order two guys who are probably on his payroll and may be his bodyguards to beat someone up, you’re a blind man walking around without a cane.

  22. lgbarn says: Dec 8, 2011 8:51 AM

    Listened to both lawyers call the Steve Duemig show and “in my mind” the accuser was drunk and left the scene after hitting several cars. He probably did get worked over but it completely sounded like a money grab to me.

  23. vegaskid21 says: Dec 8, 2011 8:52 AM

    The dude who got beat down by Blount’s possie was drunk behind the wheel. I don’t recommend the violence, but I applaud the crew stopping this drunk driver before he really hurt someone.

  24. nesuperfan says: Dec 8, 2011 9:11 AM

    “In my mind, I did nothing wrong” equals “I did something wrong”.

  25. 20bust11 says: Dec 8, 2011 9:18 AM

    Blount didn’t just punch a guy once. He, like Suh, has had multiple infractions, all due to his temper.
    Of course it’s believable.
    Blount doesn’t belong in the NFL and is fortunate Morris took him in, because nobody else wanted him. He’s a ticking timebomb.
    Hard to believe? Not likely.

    ——————————————————–
    As opposed to being focused on being a decent human being who doesn’t have people beat the crap out of someone for him?

    Nice priorities you’ve got there, LeGarrette.

    LeGarrette Blount is an independent man. He does his own punching himself.

  29. spol85 says: Dec 8, 2011 10:38 AM

    He did not participate in the beating but he did nothing to stop it. Not comparing the crimes but isnt that the same “lack of action” that Joe Paterno got fired for?

    “The report said Blount refused to cooperate with the investigation of a possible felony battery” and ““I cooperated with the cops. I waited two and a half hours for the cops to come. I cooperated with them then.”

    Seems to be a difference of opinion between Blount and the cops. I wonder what Blount considers cooperating.

  30. cowhawkfan says: Dec 8, 2011 12:48 PM

    If it was cops that stopped the guy after his “hit &r run” and beat the guy down, everyone would be crying excessive force and ranting against cops. But, because an NFL player’s posse did it makes it okay?! Hogwash. They were right to stop the guy, but they went to far and committed assault and vandalism to property. The guy deserves punishment for his actions, but so do the posse members. And yes, it’s quite possible LeGarrett encouraged the beat down.

  31. sabotage2u says: Dec 8, 2011 1:22 PM

    Some of the ignorant posts on here are ridiculous. PFT didn’t do Blount a favor either by not including vital details about this case. Blount was at his apartment complex sober after the Lions game hanging out with his 7 year old autistic nephew and two friends. This drunk driver (who had previously been arrested for a DUI in 2008) sped through the apartment complex and smashed into a car mere feet away from Blount, his nephew, and his two friends. The “Drunk” did not stop backed up and tried to speed away. Blount stayed with his nephew while his two friends reacted and ran after the Drunk. Somehow this “Drunk” while getting beat up, managed to hear & see Blount orechestrate a beating?! Please…He tried extort Blount for 90k to make it go away and not go to the media, and then when Blount refused he leaked the story to a real estate reporter at St Pete Times. People are so naive to think athletes are targets for low-lifes like this drunk driving criminal. Blount gave his statement to police, cooperated fully, and was deemed to not have been involved at all.
