Remember the flack that the Pouncey twins caught for wearing "Free Hernandez" hats at their birthday party in the wake of Aaron Hernandez's arrest? That was pretty bad. You'd think they'd learn their lesson, but that obviously didn't happen.

The well publicized incident that may, or may not, have happened involving the Pouncey twins and several patrons of the Miami night club where they were having their birthday celebration has now resulted in a civil suit being filed against the twins.

According to Andy Slater of 940 WINZ in Miami, three patrons in particular are claiming that they were not only physically assaulted, but verbally assaulted as well.

Some of the accusations include a male being hit in the head as well as kicked and punched while laying in the ground in the fetal position. Also, a female claims to be knocked out by a punch while trying to break up the altercation, and lastly, one of the patrons is claiming they were called "derogatory and homophobic remarks and anti-gay slurs"

Will Graves of the AP reported on Twitter that the three club goers filing the law suit are seeking 15 thousand dollars in damages for the nightclub altercation.

Whether they see that money, or if the Pouceys' lawyers continue to sing the song of innocence of their clients, will go a long way to how dirty this could get with surveillance footage that is bound to be released sooner or later. If it goes that far, then this could certainly get interesting.

With both brothers getting prepared for an NFL season, I doubt they would want a law suit hanging not only over their heads, but that of their respective organizations as well.
