Country singer Jason Aldean was seriously injured in an altercation at a Pensacola bar on Tuesday night. On a two-night break from his current tour, Aldean was blowing off a little steam when the fight occurred.
“He zoomed up in… wide open, on his black Harley and parked in the handicap spot,” said bar patron Ernest Bexley, who saw the whole thing go down. “He was looking for trouble from the word go. Didn’t have nobody with him but a bad attitude.”
Bexley continued: “He stomped out a cigarette on the doorstep, cursing about the ‘No Smoking’ sign. He walked in swinging his wallet chain and ordered a bottle of Black Label and he got p*ss drunk. He kept playing Johnny Cash on the jukebox and hitting on the cougars.”
“I sat down by him… didn’t know him from Adam at the time… and asked about the obviously new six-gun tattoo on his forearm. He told me in no uncertain terms to go pleasure myself in a way that’s not physically possible. I didn’t ask why… I just steered clear. But a couple old boys, Reed and Carver Jenkins, started up with him ’cause he’s kindly baby-faced. He told ’em once his bottle was empty, he’d dispose of it in one of them’s rectum if they didn’t buzz off. It got ugly fast from there and he said he wouldn’t even scuff his Wranglers taking them boys out.
“They never made it out of doors cause ol’ Carver pulled out a butterfly knife like it was the ’80s or something. Aldean broke off his bottle and sh*t was on! He took Reed out with a left hook before another dude came off the bar onto his back. Carver came in with that knife and gut-stuck him. Aldean threw that dude off his back into the pinball machine and smashed that broke bottle into Carver’s temple and the fight was over, but he got in a few more licks. That sumb*tch was relentless… ornery as a copperhead in June. And then he lit out before the blue lights got there.”
Aldean attempted to sew himself up with some Spiderwire fishing line at a nearby bait store before finally passing out. He came to in a local emergency room, but dodged out before Pensacola PD could question him.
A warrant has not been issued, but authorities say Aldean could face charges of assault and parking in a handicap spot without displaying the appropriate placard. Several witnesses have come forward to say his actions were entirely in self defense, though carried out with extreme prejudice.
“I wouldn’t screw with him even if I wanted to…. and that’s the truth,” said Bexley.
