A Madison County, Kentucky, grand jury will not indict anyone involved in a January bar fight between students and football players from Eastern Kentucky University and the University of Kentucky that left an EKU player injured, police said.

A Richmond, Kentucky, police report did not name those involved in the Jan. 25 fight at Jerzee’s. A man had complained of being assaulted by three or four men who grabbed and repeatedly hit him in the head while at the bar off the EKU campus in Richmond.

The man reported losing consciousness but later attempted to walk back to campus with two women who tried to help him. He was treated for a broken nose and facial cuts and fractures.

Police also investigated a second incident at Telford Hall on EKU’s campus.

Jeff Scurry, the father of EKU sophomore offensive lineman Colton Scurry, told The Courier-Journal in Louisville that his son was injured in the fight.

The grand jury considered evidence from both incidents and heard witness testimony, but “it was their decision not to indict anyone in connection with the incident,” the police statement said.

Kentucky athletics spokesman Tony Neely had no comment on the matter when contacted Wednesday.
