The fight reportedly began after someone threw dollar bills at a woman inside the establishment. That led to a disagreement, which eventually resulted in the ensuing melee.
While Claypool reportedly did not start the altercation, he can be seen initially pushing and shoving before pretty clearly kicking someone on the ground.
Police were eventually called, but both parties had apparently already left the scene once law enforcement arrived.
None of the combatants were arrested or charged with a crime, but it is unclear if the man Claypool kicked is preparing to take legal action.
Claypool had an outstanding first season, earning the Joe Greene Great Performance Award as the Steelers’ top rookie.
The Notre Dame product caught 62 passes for 873 yards and nine touchdowns. He also rushed for a pair of scores, tying Louis Lipps for the most touchdowns scored by a Steelers rookie with 11 total.
