Bad blood from the field spilled over to the gaming tables Sunday, as new Miami Dolphins linebacker Joey Porter was cited for misdemeanor battery after reportedly punching Cincinnati Bengals left tackle Levi Jones at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas.

 

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Porter and Jones had a brief altercation, after which Jones needed on-site medical attention, Las Vegas police spokesman Lt. Kevin McMahill told the Review-Journal.

 

"Apparently these two have a history with each other, a history of trash talking on the field," McMahill said.

 

That history comes from Porter's days with the Pittsburgh Steelers, who play their AFC North rival Bengals twice a year. The linebacker played eight seasons with the Steelers before signing with the Dolphins as a free agent earlier this month.

If he is arrested and found guilty he could face a year in jail. I doubt that happens, but I still wouldnt be happy this happened...

 

Don't be silly. Athletes that matter don't go to jail. And if they do they don't stay there aslong as they're supposed to.

Jones: Also robbed

Although a police report won?t be filed until Friday, Bengals left tackle Levi Jones was not only allegedly punched by Joey Porter Sunday night in a Las Vegas casino but he also told police he was robbed in the attack.

 

The Bengals said Monday that Jones has no serious injuries after police confirmed he had facial cuts.

 

Officer Martin Wright of the Vegas police said Monday that Jones said he had some jewelry stolen in an incident that apparently has roots in on-field trash talking that goes back several years.

 

Some sources indicated Monday that as many as seven people, including Porter, were involved in an attack of Jones, but police wouldn?t confirm the report and said they were attempting to find out if the incident is on tape.

 

“If it?s on tape, I would imagine it would be part of the report,� Wright said. “There were other people there. All we know is that when we arrived at the scene we heard there were words and one guy hit another guy and the victim wanted to press charges.�

 

The altercation is stil being sorted out by all sides. Wright said it began with words at a gaming table and finished with a confrontation in the parking lot. Police cited Porter for misdemeanor battery after he allegedly punched Jones in the face.

 

Kenny Zuckerman, Jones? agent, had no comment on the incident or his client?s condition. Porter's agent, Jeff Sperbeck, was unavailabe for comment.

 

Porter, who had half a sack in the Steelers? last five games against the Bengals, has had many on-field words with Jones, the man that blocked him on many of those plays.

 

Porter signed a five-year, $32 million deal with Miami last week after the Bengals thought they had set up a visit with the Pro Bowl linebacker. Jones and many Bengals have spent the past few Steelers games jawing with Porter. In 2005, one of their games began with Porter and wide receiver Chad Johnson trash talking at midfield just before the kickoff.

 

According to the Bengals statement, the incident has apparently not affected Jones? surgically-repaired knee. The cartilage injury knocked him out of eight games and forced him to the sidelines for the second half of the season finale against the Steelers.

 

Last month head coach Marvin Lewis said Jones could undergo another surgery that wouldn?t prevent him from reporting to training camp on time. The club hasn't confirmed if he had the procedure.

 

Porter surfaced in Miami for the first day of offseason workouts Monday for the Dolphins. The Bengals report in two weeks.

 

The Bengals game against the Dolphins in Miami this season now has some hype.

 

So, it took Porter and 7 dudes to rob him.

 

Yeah, Porter's the man.

 

I'll bet Jones probably pissed him off by telling him how sorry the Dolphins are (true).

 

Porter's jealous he's been owned by Levi for years now. This year is just going to be another one.

Thats assuming joey porter matters...

 

 

Tank Johnson just went to jail for 4 months. A cetrain Jamal Lewis went to jail a few years ago.

Punching someone in the face is a little different than having an arsenal of weapons that can take over Panama or conspiring to sell mass amounts of cocaine.

Yeah, I'm sure it took 8 guys, including Joey Porter, to rob Levi Jones and all he came away with was a small cut. :whistle

 

Oh, and I'm sure Joey's just sooooo jealous of Levi, considering his team is 8-3 against Levi's sensational Bengals since 2002. Oh yeah, and he has a SB ring. I guess he is jealous of Levi's 0.

 

Go ahead and belittle the Dolphins now, considering we all care how bad we are in a rebuilding time. But in reality, don't be upset because our new LB kicked your OT's ass. :thumbup

You're five. It's hilarious.

 

The only reason the Steelers kicked our asses is because of piss poor run defense. Every game, except the last, can be attributed to that. Not to "OMGJOEYPORTER'S" explosive D.

 

Oh, well, Levi Jones is an elite level player and one of the best in the game. I'd take him over trash like Porter. Enjoy hell in the cellar, along with Porter.

 

The sad part is, the Phins are so pathetic it's this kind of crap their fanbase has to celebrate. I'm looking forward to seeing that game now. Seeing us get all hyped up will be funny.

Actually, I'm seven. And you're right...7 of the 8 losses can be attributed to your run defense alone. :lol :lol :lol

 

For being such the great team you talk about, it was sure fun watching the Bengals in the playoffs last year. Almost as fun as watching a great team like the Bengals win a playoff game in the past 16 years.

 

See, Dolphins fans know we're not good right now. We know we're rebuilding. Call us pathetic because we're rebuilding, big deal. I guess a fan of a team that hasn't won a playoff game in 16 years, and has only been to the playoffs once during that stretch needs to feel good somehow.

 

Joey and all Dolphins fans are definitely just jealous! Goooooooooo Bengals!

Yeah perhaps if your 5'10 150 pounds. Not when your a fat ass 350 pound offensive lineman. I'm sure the guys in the locker room are going to hand wash his panties for him now :lol

Good teams usually take a step back before they take a step forward. I knew the Bengals would come short of the playoffs this season. I thought they'd go 9-7 and just miss, or barely etch by and lose the first round. I expect to make the playoffs this year... But, that's besides the point.

 

I wouldn't trade any of our superstars for any dudes on the Dolphins.

 

Have fun celebrating meaningless off the field victories like now, though.
