A man has filed a federal civil lawsuit against Tennessee Titans receiver Tajae Sharpe and offensive lineman Sebastian Tretola, alleging that they beat him up outside a Nashville bar last month during the NFL Draft.
Dante Satterfield is suing the two players for $500,000 regarding an alleged exchange at the Tin Roof Bar at 1516 Demonbreun St. in Nashville that escalated into a fight outside the establishment. The incident allegedly took place on April 27, the night the Titans drafted Corey Davis with their first pick in the draft, with a conversation over that draft selection playing a role in the matter turning violent.
According to the lawsuit, Sharpe was upset about the selection of Davis, and as he and Satterfield were talking about the draft, the conversation became heated. The litigation says that Satterfield made remarks to Sharpe about how the Titans’ selection of Davis in the first round would affect Sharpe’s role on the team, and said that Sharpe took exception to the comment.
The lawsuit states that Sharpe told Satterfield to accompany him outside, and as they moved to the alley around midnight, the lawsuit said that Sharpe punched Satterfield in the face several times while Tretola served as a lookout.
Satterfield, according to the lawsuit, was left unconscious in the alley and was later found and transported to the hospital. In all, Satterfield claims he was out for about 12 hours before regaining consciousness.
