Spencer Jones nearly loses eye in bathroom bar fight

Spencer Jones, a wide receiver for Oklahoma, messed with the wrong person and nearly paid for it with an eye.

Jones got into a bar-room brawl and took the worst of it, absorbing shots to the face and getting taken down in a chokehold. The man he fought was a trained wrestling and mixed martial arts fighter, according to his brother, who was also involved in the fracas at Logies on the Corner in Norman, Oklahoma.

It’s unclear what exactly started the fight. Jones was heard yelling, “Get the f–k out of here!” before punches began flying.

OU Daily reported Jones needed a four-hour operation on Feb. 16 on his eye.

“Dr. [Perry] Brooks came out of that surgery saying he’s extraordinarily lucky at this point, that he’s lucky he didn’t lose the eye altogether,” attorney Woodrow “Woody” Glass told the student newspaper.

“And so he was able to do some things surgically to rebuild that orbital socket and thinks everything is eventually going to come back to normal, but it’s going to take a while for him to fully recover.”
