Troubled thesp JASON LONDON took a pounding after his arrest but now his rep tells a VERY DIFFERENT account of the boozy brawl and subsequent smackdown.
Dazed & Confused star Jason London was arrested on Sunday morning outside an Arizona bar for disorderly conduct, fighting and assault, but his rep told RadarOnline.com he was brutally attacked and unlike the police report states, he did not punch a bouncer in the face.
According to the police report, authorities were called to the Martini Ranch in Scottsdale on Sunday morning at 1:42 a.m. and found Jason beat up, and the bar’s bouncer told them after Jason punched him in the face, they were forced to throw him out of the bar and he was hurt in the process — but Jason’s camp tells a very different tale.
“The details of the events leading up to the incident are still being worked out with the help of many eyewitness testimonies, with the testimony of individuals who were there with Jason for the duration of the evening, and with the recollection Jason does have. We will get to the bottom of the specifics undoubtedly,” Jason's rep said.
“The charges against Jason indicate that he is the assailant in a ‘Multiple Victim Assault,’ as described by the bouncers to the arresting officer. It is a fact of note that Jason does not have one bump, bruise, red mark – not so much as a scratch – on his hands.”
Jason sustained considerable injury to his face, but shows no marks on his hands consistent with throwing a punch at the bouncer, as is claimed.
“His face however sustained injuries which are indicative not of his 145-pound frame assaulting four 250+ pound bouncers but rather indicate a repeated, intentional, aggravated assault where excessive force was used,” the rep elaborated.
Jason, 40, remains in the hospital and is being treated for a right orbital fracture, which extends down through his cheek and into his upper jaw and mouth, a right maxillary sinus fracture, multiple contusions, multiple hematomas, concussion, multiple abrasions and a lot of swelling.
“We do know that the police arrested Jason on charges of suspicion of a multiple victim assault based on one bouncer’s account and that one of the other bouncers corroborated his buddy’s story,” the rep continued.
“Since that time witnesses have come forward to give an entirely different account of what they saw that does not match in any way the report given by the bouncers.”
While Jason’s camp admits he was drinking the night of the alleged assault, they claim any belligerent or rude comments made by Jason absolutely didn’t warrant the injuries he sustained.
