TAMPA – The victim of a severe beating says Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back LeGarrette Blount was “the leader” of the assault and directed the two men who attacked him, according to a Tampa Police report.
Blount refused to cooperate with police investigating the possible felony battery, which took place in the parking garage of his apartment complex.
Blount, 25, was not charged in the September 11 incident, nor was he accused of any direct violence. Reached by the St. Petersburg Times by phone Tuesday afternoon, Blount refused to comment except to say, “Ah, man.”
According to the police report, a man and his girlfriend, both wearing Bucs shirts, drove their 2008 Toyota pickup into the Visconti at International Drive apartments not far from Raymond James Stadium. The pickup then hit the mirror on a silver 2005 Ford Expedition, next to which Blount and two other men were standing. The victim did not want to stop next to the Expedition because the pickup would block other traffic. The three men got into the Expedition and drove around the pickup, cutting it off.
