KEY WEST, Fla. – A reserve offensive lineman for the Baltimore Ravens was arrested Sunday at a Key West strip club.
Jah Reid, 25, was taken into custody early Sunday morning at the Red Garter Saloon, an adult entertainment venue on Duval Street. He faces two counts of misdemeanor battery.
According to the police report, Reid and another man, Benjamin Buxton, were detained by security guards after they were involved in a fight with another customer, Edward Mussa.
Mussa was seen on security footage bumping into Reid inside the saloon.
Reid is then seen headbutting Mussa after the two exchanged words. Reid is then seen kicking Mussa while he lay on the ground. Reid also punched a security guard, David Smith, in the face when Smith tried to intervene, the video shows.
As Reid fought with Smith, Buxton began attacking Mussa, the police report stated. During that time, Buxton also attacked another security guard, Jason Martinez.
According to the police report, one of the men was stunned with a Taser during the incident.
Reid told officers he had been choked by a security guard. Buxton refused to speak to officers without an attorney present.
Both men were taken to the Monroe County Detention Center, where they were booked early Sunday morning. They bonded out of jail early Monday.
