Victims of Alleged Pouncey Brothers Assault Announce They're Filing Lawsuit

A man with two knots on his forehead and a chipped tooth spoke to the media on Tuesday evening about filing, along with two other people, a lawsuit against Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey and his twin brother, Maurkice.

On Saturday, New Times broke the story of Riquan James, 24, better-known as Ricky Vasquez, who took to Instagram saying he got swung on by the big brothers.

"All I can remember," he says in a series of videos, some of which have since been deleted, "is standing in a crowded club and this big guy keeps hitting me in my back, I look at him, and I'm like, OK, he's obviously turned up. And he just keeps hitting me. I ignore it. I keep ignoring the guy -- he's calling me a faggot. I realize that there's two of the guys. Now they're both in my face. The next thing I know, Honey tries to break it up. One of them punches Honey in the face, the other one punches me or the same one, I don't know. Security comes."
