According to the Boston Herald, Matt Light is being sued by the host, Jacob Herman II, of the exclusive Blue Room of Ultra 88, a Mohegan Sun nightclub in CT. Apparently, Herman was “trying to protect the patrons” when a scrum broke out.
The incident allegedly occurred on New Year’s Eve 2007, where Light was out partying with fellow teammates Matt Cassel, Stephen Gostkowski, Dan Koppen, and Wes Welker. According to Herman’s lawyers:
6-foot-4-inch, 305-pound Light left him badly bruised and with two black eyes. Herman underwent surgery to repair a severe deviated septum and depressed left nasal bone fracture
Wow what a surprise… A NFL player can do a lot of damage, you try and fight him, and you get injured…Shocker! Herman probably thought he was going to be Mr. Tough Guy until he realized what we had gotten himself into. Now he’s trying to get some money out of it since things didn’t work out as he had planned.
Note to self: don’t go fighting NFL players in a nightclub. Bad things will happen.
