    Young cited in assault at club after employee disparages Horns

    Police cited NFL quarterback Vince Young in the assault of a man who disrespected the University of Texas Longhorns inside a northwest Dallas strip club early Sunday morning.

    Surveillance video shows the former University of Texas star and Club Onyx employee Creiton Kinchen, 45, exchanging words for a few minutes before the scuffle in a small, crowded office area about 3:30 a.m.

    At one point Kinchen, who police believe is from Oklahoma, can be seen flashing an upside-down "Hook 'em Horns" hand sign at Young.

    "There was a conversation going on between Mr. Young and several people inside the office," said Dallas police Lt. Craig Miller, acting commander of the Crimes Against Persons Division. "One of the [club employees] makes a gesture contradictory to the University of Texas, the 'Hook 'em' sign upside down. This obviously made Mr. Young upset."

    Kinchen suffered a cut lip. Police believe alcohol was a factor in the feud.

    Young, who was not arrested, faces up to a $500 fine on the Class C misdemeanor charge. The Houston native is entering his fifth season with the Tennessee Titans. Neither his Dallas attorney nor his agent returned messages seeking comment Sunday.

    Titans Coach Jeff Fisher told The Tennessean on Sunday that the team was aware of the incident.

    "Members of the organization have been in touch with Vince," Fisher said. "At this point, we're just gathering facts. I have nothing else to say about it. I can't speculate, can't go into detail. We're just gathering facts. I'm sure we will have a lot more information over the next few days."

    By the time Dallas police were called to the club in the 10500 block of Wire Way near West Northwest Highway after 4 a.m., Young was gone. But police said they were able to track him down and that he came to Jack Evans Police Headquarters and was cooperative in the investigation.

    Young had arrived at the club with a couple other people minutes prior to the fight. He was in the private office to speak to club managers about "how he planned on spending his evening inside the club," Miller said.

    The surveillance video does not include any audio, but police said Kinchen continued to make disparaging remarks about the University of Texas, which Young led to a national title in 2006. Young starts to leave the office but then returns and goes after Kinchen, sparking a brief scuffle.

    A woman who answered the door at the Lewisville home that police listed as Kinchen's residence said he could not speak yet about the incident. The purplish-pink double doors of Club Onyx were locked Sunday afternoon and the voice mailbox on the club's phone was full.

    This is not the first time Young's behavior has drawn police involvement. In September 2008, the Titans called police for help searching for Young after he reportedly mentioned suicide and drove away from his home with a gun. Young said afterward the incident was overblown by the media.

    Greg Aiello, the NFL's vice president, public relations, said the league will look into the Sunday morning incident. It falls under the league's personal-conduct policy, which commissioner Roger Goodell strengthened in April 2007. At the time, Goodell said "we hold ourselves to a higher standard of responsible conduct."

    Since then, Goodell has suspended six players a total of seven times for off-the-field matters. Former Cowboys cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones received two suspensions. All of the suspensions were for relatively more serious incidents.

    The Titans are scheduled to start a three-day mandatory mini-camp in Nashville today. Staff writers Richard Abshire, Ian McCann and Gerry Fraley contributed to this report.

    Give 'em another chance. I bet he learns his lesson after this time. Or the time after this. Certainly by the time after that one though at least...

    This has all the makings of an "only in Texas" scenario...

    Only in Texas does a fight in a strip club involve a dispute over college football alliances.

    I assume he successfully defended the honor of the Longhorns? All charges will be dropped.

    "One of the [club employees] makes a gesture contradictory to the University of Texas, the 'Hook 'em' sign upside down. This obviously made Mr. Young upset."


    That's probably a felony down there.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Vince Young apologizes, blames buddy for attending strip club

    V. youngpb.jpgTitans quarterback Vince Young began his contrition tour Monday morning at Titans practice, but showed once again he doesn't quite get "it" yet.

    The Nashville Tennessean writes on Twitter that Young apologized to his teammates, coaches, and fans. And then he "said a friend talked him into going to a strip club," which led to his citation for assault.

    Just stop. Vince Young is a 27-year-old man. He goes where he wants and started an altercation. We can accept he goes to strip clubs. How dumb does he think we are?

    Young's nightlife habits, maturity, and work ethic have been talked about even during his career turnaround. Packers tight end Jermichael Finley, for example, said that he had to get away from Young and Young's agent Major Adams because of their late nights of partying.

    Jeff Fisher plans to meet with Young later on Monday. The coach's message should be to cut the crap.

    so he's saying...I didn't want to go, but a friend talked me into it.

    Seriously? Is your mental age 12, Vince?
    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    It's weird because he's more into the shirtless sausage-fest scene...
