Kentucky QB Drew Barker Sucker Punched By EKU’s Patrick Graffree
Police identified Eastern Kentucky University’s Colton Scurry and Kentucky players Drew Barker, Dorian Baker and Tymere Dubose as those involved in the January altercation in Jerzee’s Cocktail Lounge & Dance Club, according to Greg Kocher of Kentucky.com.
This initial incident was reported way back in January, but since then a Madison County grand jury declined to press charges.
However, the fight is coming back into the media spotlight after two videos were released: one of the particular bar incident and the other of an on-campus altercation with Kentucky QB Drew Barker.
As for the former, while both parties are in the wrong, Colton can clearly be seen as the aggressor: after an exchanging of words, the EKU athlete stormed into the crowd and initiated the fight.
But the second video is much more shocking. Later that evening, three Kentucky players, including one identified as Drew Barker, entered EKU’s Telford Hall. Reportedly, a student who lived there, Anna-Elizabeth Marcinek, let them in.
And when Barker was talking to the front desk clerk, EKU lineman Patrick Graffree entered and removed his shirt. Afterwards, he calmly walked up to Barker and sucker punched him, knocking him out momentarily.
Again, charges were not pursued. Still, it is a chilling video that makes one want to tune into the EKU versus Kentucky matchup on October 3. It just might be a little heated.
