(Newser) – Two Australian Football League players from the same team got into a nasty brawl over the weekend—all reportedly over the opportunity to get Rihanna's autograph. And the whole thing was caught on camera. This video shows Gold Coast Suns players Campbell Brown and Steven May. The team was at an LA nightclub after training in Arizona. But they were asked to leave because Rihanna and her entourage were coming for a post-concert party. All the players decided to leave except for May, who supposedly wanted to try and catch the singer for an autograph, and started verbally abusing another player. That's when Brown stepped in, and reportedly punched May in the face, fracturing his jaw. May will need surgery, and Brown could be facing a forced early retirement. Newsy reports:
