Reported police video shows bloodied Sterling Brown after alleged strip club attack
Police video surfaced on Tuesday showing a bloodied Sterling Brown in the aftermath of an attack that reportedly took place outside a Miami strip club, according to South Florida radio host Andy Slater.
Slater shared the video on Twitter which he described as body-cam footage from the aftermath of the April 19 attack. Brown's Houston Rockets teammate Kevin Porter Jr. is also seen on the video.
Brown — standing next to Porter Jr. — is seen holding his shirt over his bloodied face while talking with police before revealing his torso also covered in blood. An officer gestures toward Brown and Porter Jr. and walks away before unintelligible audio cuts out, muted by the police, according to Slater.
Porter Jr. later gestures at officers in what appears to be a tense discussion that can't be made out because of the muted audio.
Warning, the video below contains bloody footage:

That attack occurred during a Rockets road trip to Florida. After facing the Orlando Magic on April 18, the Rockets traveled south to face the Miami Heat the next day. Prior to the Heat game, the Rockets announced that Brown had been the victim of an assault and suffered facial lacerations.
Two days later, The Athletic reported that the attack occurred outside the Miami strip club Booby Trap during a late-night trip by multiple Rockets players. According to the report, Brown attempted to board the wrong bus after exiting the club and was attacked by the bus' occupants. One of the attackers reportedly hit Brown in the back of his head with a bottle, "leaving blood everywhere."
Brown required a trip to the Jackson Memorial Hospital, and teammates feared for his life, according to the report. Brown was released form the hospital the same day after receiving stitches and undergoing testing. Rockets head coach Stephen Silas said on April 21 that "Sterling is here in Houston and recovering."
Brown has not played since or publicly addressed the attack. NBA officials told The Athletic that they were investigating the incident.
