Jerramy Stevens, the one-time troubled tight end, is now a troubled former NFL player.

Stevens was arrested Thursday night in South Tampa after he allegedly attacked two bouncers at a surfer bar. Stevens has been accused of felony and misdemeanor battery following the attacks at Surfer’s Island Bar, according to the Tampa Tribune.

Stevens, a former Tampa Bay Buccaneer, allegedly punched two bouncers. One of them may have suffered a broken jaw.

But Stevens’ attorney Mark O’Brien claims his client was attacked by several people and that Stevens suffered multiple broken ribs and “extensive bruising” to his face and body. O’Brien claims the wounds were defensive in nature.

The Bucs cut bait with Stevens on Oct. 25 after he was arrested with 38 grams of marijuana and drug paraphanalia. He is due in court next month for that case.
