Brandon Banks May Have Instigated Fight That Led To Double Stabbing

The stabbing incident involving Redskins return man Brandon Banks has taken a turn for the worse.

NBC Washington's Craig Melvin broke the news that a source informed him that it may have been Banks who started the fight which led to a double stabbing, leaving Banks, along with his friend Christopher Nixon, hospitalized.

Per Melvin:

Source:Brandon Banks and/or his friend started the fight Saturday morning after being told they couldn't come in b/c Park was about to closeless than a minute ago via web

 

Banks was spending his early Saturday morning in Northwest D.C. and initially appeared to be without fault in what appeared to be an attempt to break up a 3 a.m. fight occurring at "the Park."  However, this latest report indicates he might have been the aggressor despite his agent's claim that Banks "was not involved in any wrongdoing."

Tonight's report isn't the first to raise a red flag in regards to what actually sparked the crime. Sam Chamberlain from TBD.com reported Banks made a seemingly harmless joke to which the suspect took offense. Somehow it led to a heated exchange, resulting in the stabbing according to Chamberlain.

Banks is spending another night in the hospital with superficial stab wounds for "precautionary reasons" according to the Washington Post's Mike Jones.

This isn't good news for the Redskins who have been overwrought with bad news during the offseason. We'll have more for you on the situation as it develops.
