OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi football players Denzel Nkemdiche and Robert Nkemdiche are being sued for $2 million after allegedly beating a man at a fraternity party last year.
According to a complaint filed in Lafayette County Circuit Court on Friday, plantiff Matthew Baird claims Denzel Nkemdiche punched him from behind and knocked him unconscious. The complaint then says Robert Nkemdiche and five others - who were not named - began to kick and stomp Baird.
Baird's attorney didn't immediately respond to a message seeking comment. The story was first reported by foxsports.com.
Ole Miss athletic director Ross Bjork said in a statement ''the proper authorities investigated the matter and could find no evidence of wrong-doing.'' He said the school would support the brothers as they ''defend themselves in this civil case.''
