KNOXVILLE, Tenn.- The attorney for one of the UT football players involved in the bar brawl in Knoxville says his client did not start that fight.

Attorney Greg Issacs says Montori Hughes was attacked without his alleged attacker being provoked.  Montori Hughes is a freshman defensive tackle at UT, and has not been interviewed nor charged by Knoxville Police.

The fight happened early Friday morning at "Bar Knoxville" on the Cumberland Strip near the UT campus.

Teammates Da'Rick Rogers and Darren Myles were both arrested. The fight left an off-duty Knoxville police officer unconscious.
