While the identity of the man who struck the woman has not officially been released by the Austin Police Department, I’ve learned from multiple sources who threw the punch.Former starting Univ. of Texas Linebacker Rashad Bobino, who last played for the Longhorns in 2008, was the individual who punched the unidentified woman from behind as seen in the TMZ.com video.
Bobino is now out of football after being cut by the Atlanta Falcons before the 2009 NFL season.
Now if TMZ wants to be fair and balanced with it’s coverage it should update it’s original post from “UFC Fighter in Bloody Street Brawl” to “Atlanta Falcon Smashes In Woman’s Head”. They should also call up all the Atlanta Falcons brass and ask them what they think, since they decided to do that with Roger’s former employer too. Although I won’t blame them if they don’t … if these outlets covered every instance where a football player punches out a woman, they’d hardly have time to cover celebrity sex tape and drug freakout incidents.
