This is the kind of reality that might make a man want to go out drinking — and drink Dvoracek did, going to a bar back in Norman called the Seven47 and getting into it with a bouncer. The club's owner told reporters: "Dusty just kind of freaked out. Our security would never provoke. I think Dusty's temper got out of hand."
He was arrested early last Saturday morning and charged with public intoxication, assault and battery, and interfering with an official process.
This reads like your run-of-the-mill drunken-lineman-getting-his-ass-handed-to-him kind of story. Oftentimes, these tales are more destructive — someone's head goes through a police-cruiser window, a female patron flies over a bar, male genitalia is withdrawn and used to urinate in a bar sink, and so on. None of that happened in this case, at least not that we know of yet, so let's give Dusty a bit of a break and hit him with just 31 points for slugging the bouncer.
