Twins Maurkice and Mike Pouncey who both currently play in the NFL could be sued by an assault victim who plans to take the football players to court. 

The assault victim who identified himself as Riquan James has announced that he plans to sue the Pouncey twins for injuries he sustained at the Cameo Nightclub on Saturday.

According to NBC 6 in Miami, the 24-year-old believed the two players taunted the man before inflicting injuries through assault, the pair were at the Nightclub to celebrate their 25th birthdays.

James explained to NBC 6 about the incident: "From there, somebody grabbed me and I got hit, Somebody lifted me up and dragged me out of the club. I was being beat up, I was getting punched and kicked. A bottle hit me."

He believed the two inflicting the beating on him were Steelers center Maurkice and Dolphins center Mike Pouncey. He also suffered a chipped tooth and sustained cut that required 10 stitches which he revealed on social media.

James has also made allegations that the Pouncey twins produced gay slurs whilst in the middle of the altercation, a belief that he relayed to NBC 6.

In the initial aftermath of the event, it was thought that there wasn't enough primary evidence to suggest that Maurkice and Mike were actually guilty of assault, however James will continue to pursue the case against the NFL players.
