Sharpe and teammate sued by Nashville man.
Tennessee Titans wide receiver is accused of assaulting a man outside of a Nashville bar while his teammate, offensive lineman Sebastian Tretola served as a lookout.
According to reports, the incident went down on the night of the NFL Draft, shortly after the Titans selected highly touted receiver Corey Davis with the 5th overall pick.
In the lawsuit obtained by Deadspins' Patrick Redford, the man, Dante R. Satterfield, says Sharpe became angry when he made a comment that the Titan's selection of Davis would result in less playing time for Sharpe.
Satterfield says he was knocked out in an alley outside of the Tin Roof bar, and remained unconscious for 12 hours after the attack. He was diagnosed with a concussion, broken bones in the face, massive facial bruising, and a perforated eardrum.
He sued both Sharpe and Tretola for assault and punitive damages, though Sharpe's agent vehemently denied the allegations.
“The claims are false and ridiculous,” Blaine Roche said. “Unfortunately this is a classic shakedown attempt. Tajae categorically denies any involvement whatsoever and looks forward to vindicating his name and focusing on what matters most - football.”
