Police are investigating after a man claimed Dolphins center Mike Pouncey and Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey assaulted him at a Miami Beach nightclub, but no arrests have been made and police have not confirmed that the Pounceys are the subjects of the investigation.

“There was an incident that occurred at Cameo last night at 4:20 a.m., where an alleged assault took place,” Miami Beach Police Sgt. Bobby Hernandez told New Times. “We have not confirmed it’s the Pouncey brothers that are the subjects, but we are going to have detectives contacting the victims to investigate further.”

A man named Ricky Vasquez posted several messages on Twitter and Instagram saying he was assaulted at Cameo, the club where the Pouncey twins also got attention at this time last year for wearing “Free Hernandez” hats after their college teammate Aaron Hernandez was charged with murder. The Pounceys, whose birthday is July 24, have an annual birthday party at Cameo.

Vasquez claims he was punched and has a chipped tooth and a cut that required 10 stitches. He also claims that he was called an anti-gay slur.
