Cam Newton appears to be involved in fight at youth football event


Former pro football player Cam Newton was allegedly involved in a scuffle during a youth football tournament in Atlanta on Sunday.

Video surfaced online that seemed to show the NFL’s 2015 Most Valuable Player at a 7-on-7 youth football camp, ESPN reported. Newton, 34, who led the Carolina Panthers to Super Bowl 50 during the 2015 season, was shown wearing one of his custom hats when the scuffle broke out, according to WSOC-TV.

The video purportedly showed Newton being shoved by three people near the top of a set of stairs before more pushing and shoving ensued, the television station reported. He did not appear to throw any punches in the video, which lasted 22 seconds.

The fight was broken up by a police officer and security officials at the We Ball Sports x DynastyU 7v7 tournament at B.E.S.T. Academy in Atlanta, ESPN reported.
