The kicker for Florida State University’s (FSU) football team says he was once beaten by fraternity members at his school for missing field goals, according to The Tallahassee Democrat.
The Democrat on Tuesday reported Ricky Aguayo told the Tallahassee Police Department (TPD) about the incident in 2016.
TPD records state that Aguayo reported getting “jumped” in front of the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity house on College Avenue in Tallahassee.
“He said they were giving him a hard time about missed field goals during the Florida game,” TPD officers wrote in their report.
“He said he was rushed by several of the members of the fraternity … and was punched in the face.”
Aguayo missed two out of three field goals during FSU’s rivalry game with the University of Florida (UF) on Dec. 2, 2016.
The kicker was then walking past the fraternity house around 3 a.m. local time later that evening when people on its front porch began yelling at him about his performance.
TPD officers noted afterwards that Aguayo had blood on his face and shirt, which had been ripped, and swelling consistent with being punched.
Police documents state that called FSU tight end Ryan Izzo to the residence to assist him, with the fight ending before the redshirt junior arrived.
Aguayo was 19 at the time, while Izzo was 20, and both FSU football players noted that they had been drinking.
Witnesses who were driving past the melee said that they had to stop their vehicles once it spilled out into the street.
Two men said that Aguayo was thrown into their vehicle, and they also told police they then tried halting the confrontation.
The Democrat reported that no one involved in the incident requested medical attention, and none of the participants wanted to press charges afterwards.
FSU defeated UF 31-13 during their clash last year, and Aguayo has since made 15 of 18 field goals this season for 33 extra points.
The police report involving Aguayo is one of nearly 24 such documents obtained in a public records request related to FSU’s Pi Kappa Phi chapter.
The chapter is now shuttered following a probe into the death of Andrew Coffey, one of its pledges, at an off-campus party on Nov. 3.
