Report: Kristaps Porzingis bloodied after being jumped in native Latvia (VIDEO)

Screen Shot 2019-05-12 at 12.26.13 PM

This season has been an interesting one for Kristaps Porzingis. The former New York Knicks big man was traded to the Dallas Mavericks, and he has been embroiled in a sexual assault case.

Now reports are floating about that Porzingis was involved in an altercation back in his native Latvia. According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, Porzingis was jumped at a nightclub in his home country.

Video of what appeared to be Porzingis after the dust-up surfaced on the internet on Sunday, with no real context other than what could be seen on film.

In the blurry video, Porzingis is shown with a bloody mark on top of his forehead, his t-shirt torn. Porzingis can be seen pushing a woman — presumably trying to keep him from continuing the situation — out of the way before several more men step between him. A man who looks like a police officer then can be seen talking to Porzingis as the NBA star gesticulates.

We don’t know the extent of his injuries, if he has any. At this point information is sparse and we are simply looking for answers.
