NFL Rookie Mike Evans


Throws Punches at Bouncers [Update]

8/22/2014 12:18 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tampa Bay Bucs rookie wide receiver Mike Evans was in the middle of an INSANE nightclub brawl -- fighting bouncers in the street ... and TMZ Sports has the footage. 

It all went down outside Dream Nightclub ... where the #7 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft was screaming at bouncers. We're told Evans had been partying inside the club moments before the video begins. 

The person who shot the video tells TMZ Sports the footage was captured Saturday night. However, Mike's agent insists the incident took place back in March. 

While Evans -- who just turned 21 yesterday -- unloads on the staff, a person who appears to be in Mike's entourage throws a punch at a bouncer ... and that's when all hell breaks loose.

During the melee, Mike gets knocked out of frame ... but comes running back into the center of the madness ... throwing a haymaker. 

He continues to throw punches -- while bobbing and weaving like the superstar athlete that he is. 

Despite the presence of several men wearing "police" vests -- we're told Mike was not arrested. In fact, we're told NO ONE was arrested. 

According to the nightclub's website, you have to be 21 to enter -- and Mike was only 20 at the time of the incident. 

We reached out to Mike's rep and the Bucs. So far, no word back. 
1:36 PM PT -- Mike's GF posted a photo of the couple back in March, wearing the same clothes they were in on the night of the fight. It's pretty clear, this thing went down in March.

He is in the NFL. He probably thought it was a requirement to be a douche.

Why is the guy with the vest that says police across the front walking away from the situation?

Nothing like impressing your new employer - I bet they are thrilled

He should immediately be suspended from the team if not have his contract voided. It's well past time the NFL took action to clean up their act.

There are always two sides to a story, but you don't want to be getting into a fight with bouncers...anywhere. It sounds like Evans was told to leave the place because he wasn't 21. He didn't like it, so he and the guy in his entourage opted to play the thug/jerk card.

No arrests? ....and if it was footage of Beiber , this would be front page news around the world screaming and crying for arrest and deportation . Hypocritical world we live in.

So out of that big brawl, there were no arrests? Please don't tell me it's because he's a football player. I don't think I can stand hearing about another player or celebrity who gets away with something that most of the rest of us wouldn't. I'm really sick of it.

I dont blame him.. 2 weeks ago a bouncer told me he attacks when a customer balds their fist.. Man or woman!! (they just too tough)

He was bobbing and weaving???? He was running and jumping over cars. He will be put on probation. No need to burn him at the stake. Some serious hatters on TMZ.

Charges don't have to be filed for NFL to suspend. Video should be enough.
