A troubling clip of Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool seemingly kicking a guy in the face went viral on Wednesday morning.
According to TMZ Sports, “there was an issue involving someone throwing dollar bills at a woman inside the bar, which sparked an argument … and eventually, things moved outside.”
From there, things escalated. Although Claypool did not instigate the physical altercation according to witnesses, he did end up participating in it.
Given that he is 6’4” and 238 pounds, his involvement was hard to miss.
The video largely speaks for itself.

The brawl occurred outside Wild Goose Tavern in Costa Mesa on March 13.
It remains to be seen if the NFL will ultimately step in and take any sort of action regarding what transpired.

This past season Claypool recorded 62 receptions for 873 yards and 11 total touchdowns. Earlier in the year, he found himself at the center of a firestorm when Steelers fans went after ESPN for their treatment of him.
As of Wednesday morning, Claypool has yet to issue any sort of statement on the situation.
