A video showing Broncos wide receiver Cody Latimer slapping a strip club bouncer and getting pepper sprayed in the face was released by TMZ on Sunday, which has led to a response from both Latimer and the team. Charges were not filed and the police are not investigating the incident. "It's unfortunate that something from six months ago that didn't result in anything all of this sudden becomes a big story".

According to TMZ, this altercation stemmed from a dispute over the establishment's dress code. It was February 20. "There's not much to say about it. But I get the world we live in and all the attention we have on us", said Latimer, who is entering the final season of his rookie contract.

Latimer responded to the posting of the video Sunday, approximately six months later, with a post to Twitter.

In a Twitter message posted Sunday afternoon, Latimer said he has "grown so much since February 20" and that "this situation is in the past".


The Broncos and the National Football League have now learned of the incident.

Latimer also commented on the scuffle.

Taken in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft, Latimer ranks seventh in IN history in receptions (135) and receiving yards (2,042) and would rank higher had he chose to stay for his senior season.
