Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin announced last week that redshirt sophomore defensive back Jacquese Kirk would be transferring from the program after violating team rules. At the time, Franklin didn’t specify what Kirk did to land in himself into trouble.
Perhaps this had something to do with it: the Nashville Tennesseean reports citing a Metro Police report that Kirk admitted to stabbing ex-Commodores lineman Justin Cabbagestalk with a pocket knife during a bar fight on April 7. According to the report, Cabbagestalk and Kirk got into an altercation when Kirk noticed Cabbagestalk making, ahem, “hand motions” at him. The two got into a fight at which point Kirk allegedly pulled out his pocket knife and stabbed Cabbagestalk. Amazingly, Cabbagestalk said he didn’t realize he had been stabbed until about 10 minutes later.
Kirk was not arrested or charged in the incident as Cabbagestalk “wanted to let the matter die” and “would not assist in prosecution.”
Kirk’s Twitter bio currently says he is at Jacksonville State. After redshirting his freshman season in 2011, Kirk played in two games a receiver for the ‘Dores in 2012 and moved to defense this spring. Cabbagestalk last played for Vandy in 2010.
