Video shows Michigan’s Csont’e York KOing man outside bar

Csont’e York

And by “KOing man” I mean “knocking him the !%$# out.”

Last week it was reported that Michigan had indefinitely suspended wide receiver Csont’e York because he was part of a police investigation.  It was subsequently reported that York would be facing three misdemeanor charges — one count of aggravated assault and two counts of assault or assault and battery — for an incident that occurred July 18.

This afternoon, the Ann Arbor Police Department released a security video showing the incident.  And, suffice to say, it doesn’t paint York in a flattering light.

The actual punch occurs at around the :20-second mark:


Now, there are sucker punches and then there are sucker punches;  that one thrown by York was the (female dog) move of sucker punches.

As to what led up to the punch, offered up some of the details:

York, 20, who is wearing a fishing cap in the video, and his teammate Da’Mario Jones, 19, apparently got into a confrontation with the victim and his friend off-camera because the victim reportedly bumped into York.

“A group of people were arguing about football and hockey. Everyone was talking … crap. … (The victim) was jaw-jacking. All (of a) sudden, the guy just came up and cold clocked (the victim).”

One witness said he thought York hit the victim because he is white, according to the report, but York and Jones told police it was because the men bumped into them.

The victim suffered a broken jaw as a result of the punch.

It’s unclear what if any game time York will miss because of the incident.

York, a three-star member of UM’s 2013 recruiting class, played in one game as a true freshman last season. He was expected to see an increased role in the offense in 2014.

    What a punk.

    If UM still has a shred of dignity- which I doubt- expel this thug immediately.

    Anyone wondering what a sucker punch looks like should watch this video.

    Karma is biiiiiiach Mr. York. Your payback will come in time…

    He’ll be punished by scUM. If he had allegedly raped someone like their former kicker, they’d cover it up until his playing career was over.

    Jesus. Talk about a sucker punch! Not many people wouldn’t have been ko’d from a shot like that.

    That was a hit and run sucker punch. LaGarrette Blount got suspened for 9 games for an understandable cold-cocking of a totally deserving Hout. This dude hit a guy that brushed up against him on a crowded walkway. The victim appeared to be apologetic or at the very least non-confrontational. Karma indeed.

    Little B!

    No respect for UM if this dude isn’t expelled immediately. This tough guy should be in jail, not on a football field.

    This is a rhetorical question, but why would you do something like that?? Just haul off and slam a guy in the jaw when he’s looking the other way?? Just a vicious, pissy thing to do! That’s not a fight–it’s like walking up behind someone and hitting him over the head with a rock.

    Is his manhood that insecure that he has to sucker punch a guy because he “bumped into them”?

  11. jrs45 says: Aug 12, 2014 4:39 PM

    Now that’s a classic sucker punch!

  12. stoicpaisano says: Aug 12, 2014 4:45 PM

    Polar bear hunting.

    High Yella Holder will say blacks can’t be racist tho.

    Can’t we all get along?

  13. samsonight1010 says: Aug 12, 2014 4:58 PM

    Dumb thug, I look forward to no action from his school and seeing him get laid out after dropping a poorly thrown ball this fall

  14. samsonight1010 says: Aug 12, 2014 5:03 PM

    I’ve never heard of this guy because nobody will broadcast a practice of the nation’s 87th best team, but someone please tell me his name isn’t pronounced “kunt”

  15. nicofthenorthstar says: Aug 12, 2014 5:11 PM

    Clearly this fine gentleman deserves to have his college experience paid for by real students. Quality dude.
    The victim’s hands were shoved in his pockets – clearly not looking for or expecting punches to be thrown. He’s gotta have at least a mild TBI to go with his busted jaw.
    I hope he puts the loser in the stupid hat deep in debt with a lawsuit to cover all medical expenses plus a healthy sum for pain and suffering.

    Waiting to hear from all the self-righteous Michigan fans who ripped on MSU about Jayru Campbell after his body slamming a security guard. York is actually a Michigan player whereas Campbell was still a high school kid who had only committed to MSU (and evidently has had the offer pulled).

  17. iammrbinky says: Aug 12, 2014 5:32 PM

    As a Michigan fan he needs to face the criminal consequences and be kicked off the team immediately. Let scUM, who doubles as the Chief of Police in that toilet bowl in Ohio, add him him. But then again, scUM prefers murderers and rapists.

  18. auburntigers34 says: Aug 12, 2014 5:33 PM

    tell me his name isn’t pronounced “kunt”

    if it’s not, it should be.

  19. iammrbinky says: Aug 12, 2014 5:34 PM

    See how I did that with Urban’s name? Pretty childish huh? Buckeye fans lol

    What a chicken sh@t move by a tough guy from Michigan! Tell me what the WHITE guy did? Thug wolverine!

  22. basebuck says: Aug 12, 2014 7:30 PM

    What a punk! Another thug from Michigan! What did the white guy do? Come on Brady , can this guy!

  24. barkleyblows says: Aug 12, 2014 8:25 PM

  25. dsharpe8 says: Aug 12, 2014 8:32 PM

    What a b!tch move… I nominate him for sneak diss of the year with that move.

  26. BrownsTown says: Aug 12, 2014 10:28 PM

    Wow, even Taylor Lewan thinks that was cheap.

  27. brownsmakemecrazy says: Aug 13, 2014 7:53 AM

    Wow. This guy should not be suspended, he should be kicked off the team. What a cheap shot. Then the coward takes off. He should be arrested in jail, kicked off the team and thrown out of school.

    There is no other punishment than all 3 that would be acceptable. Wow Michigan have your standards dropped.

  28. brownsmakemecrazy says: Aug 13, 2014 7:57 AM

    Better question how is that only a misdemeanor.

  29. fmax0724 says: Aug 13, 2014 11:35 AM

    He gone!

  30. irishayes says: Aug 15, 2014 10:37 AM

    This thug has no place in cfb. Good thing it was caught on tape otherwise he’d be getting Hoke’s standard “2-game suspension” regardless how egregious the offense.
