Kansas City Chiefs offensive lineman Ron Bruggeman was reportedly assaulted over the weekend.
According to the Desmoines Register, the incident happened around 1:30 a.m. Sunday morning.
Officers said they saw Castro-Cortez shove Bruggeman. When Bruggeman turned around, Castro-Cortez allegedly punched him in the face.
Police who saw the incident said the attack was unprovoked. Bruggeman had a cut to his upper lip and complained of pain around his nose and mouth.
He refused medical attention.
While officers were investigating, Juan Manuel Sarceno-Barrera, 23, approached them and refused to leave when the officers asked him multiple times to step back.
The incident doesn’t appear to be Bruggman’s fault but as former Chiefs coach Herm Edwards was fond of saying, “Nothing good happens after midnight.”
Bruggeman entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent and spent some time with the Bucs and Falcons before joining the Chiefs.
