Another of those 'late night out' incidents in the news.
I suppose as it's a young man's game there's going to be stories like this every so often.
It's not the first time and it won't be the last. Not good though.

Parramatta have sacked Toyota Cup player Shaun Anderson for knocking out club mate and NRL star Reni Maitua on a night out in Kings Cross.
The Eels say they have conducted a full investigation into the incident that took place over the weekend outside the Tunnel nightclub in Kings Cross, and have cleared senior player Maitua of any wrongdoing.
Anderson, 18, has had his contract terminated for punching Maitua to the ground.
It's the second up-and-coming talent the Eels have sacked in the past week, after they also tore up the contract of Jamil Hopoate for bad behaviour at an NRL rookie camp in Sydney.
Eels chief executive Ken Edwards said the club would continue to take a hard line.
"I make no apology for the club's firm policy on player behaviour," Edwards said in an Eels statement.
