Monday’s around the NFL are generally a day filled with game evaluation, analysis and injuries reports, but yesterday’s news was dominated by a story about a stripper named Sweet Pea.

On Monday afternoon, the good folks at TMZ broke a story about Ravens offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie’s birthday, which started as a not-so-innocent party and ended with a fight on a party bus. The fight broke out after a stripper named Sweet Pea broke a bottle over Ravens WR Jacoby Jones’s head. Police responded to the incident but Jones, who was allegedly bleeding from the head, refused medical treatment and did not go to the hospital.

Social media was all over the story, and later Monday afternoon, photos from Bryant McKinnie’s Instagram surfaced, featuring pictures of Sweet Pea.

The Ravens official Twitter account provided an update on Jones, saying “WR Jacoby Jones is in the building today, has attended meetings and gone through his usual rehab.” Ravens head coach John Harbaugh later confirmed the story, saying that while he was not “impressed” with the report, but that Jones is fine.
