A 29-year-old man has been arrested and charged with simple assault after allegedly punching Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert in South Dakota early Saturday morning.
The incident happened at the Zoo Bar in Aberdeen, South Dakota. Police responded to a call at 1:07 a.m. on Saturday.
The Aberdeen police department released a statement on Monday morning:
“It was discovered that an adult male had been punched in the face. The male was transported to Avera St. Lukes Hospital where he was treated and released.
“Investigation led to the arrest of Kyle Douglas Hadala, age 29 of Sarasota, Florida. He was charged with simple assault.”
According to the Brown County State’s Attorney Office, Hadala has been released on a personal recognizance bond. His next court appearance is scheduled for July 10.
A source on Saturday confirmed to NBC Sports Philadelphia that Goedert was indeed sucker punched and taken to a local hospital but was fine.
