2007: Tim Tebow breaks up fight between Aaron Hernandez and bouncer

By / 07.02.13

The Aaron Hernandez back story now includes a Tim Tebow component because of course it does. Back in 2007, Tebow tried breaking up a fight between Hernandez and a bouncer at a Gainesville bar. At time, the two were teammates at Florida. Hernandez ended up breaking the man’s ear drum as he walked away from the confrontation. Sadly, Tebow was not able to heal him.

More details from the Orlando Sentinel:

“Tebow stated that he witnessed the dispute,” the officer wrote. “… Tebow stated that he went over to try to help resolve the conflict.”

Tebow went on to say he urged Hernandez to leave peacefully and tried to make arrangements to pay the bill.

Two hours later, another officer found Hernandez and spoke with him about the incident. Tebow was present during the interview.

The officer wrote Hernandez did not appear to be intoxicated and was, “very polite and professional.”

Hernandez told the officer both he and Tebow had already called then-UF football coach Urban Meyer and informed him about the incident.

A transcript of that phone call, probably:

Tebow: “Hey coach, Aaron punched a guy.”
Meyer: “Again?”
Tebow: “Yea.”
Meyer: “Is the guy hurt bad?”
Tebow: “Nah, just a broken ear drum.”
Meyer: “Ok, see you at practice tomorrow.”

(In 2007, Florida led the nation with 12 arrests. This makes 13. How many more did Urban hide?)
