Chargers players cleared from P.B. bar brawl

SAN DIEGO (CNS) – Several unidentified bar patrons who took part in a brawl that severely injured a man outside a Pacific Beach nightspot remained at large Wednesday, while a Chargers player initially considered a possible participant in the fracas was cleared of suspicion.

As of this afternoon, no one had been arrested in the fight, which involved people who had been socializing at Bar West on Hornblend Street early Monday morning, San Diego police Detective Gary Hassen said.

The altercation left 21-year-old Amir Khan of El Cajon with a severe head wound. Khan, who apparently suffered the injury when he was knocked down and hit his head on the ground about 2:15 a.m., was hospitalized and placed in a medically induced coma. He has since regained consciousness and has been able to speak with investigators.

Chargers wide receiver Legedu Naanee and several of his teammates were at the tavern when the fight occurred, but detectives have determined that they were not involved in the assault, according to Hassen.

Naanee told reporters later that day that he did not know how his name “came up” in connection with the incident.

“I didn't see the fight,” he said.
