USA TODAY Sports also reported that details are currently incomplete, and authorities with the local police department have yet to comment.

TopShelf Performance, a football training program involved in the situation, released a joint statement to The Athletic.

“We are deeply concerned about the recent incident involving Cam Newton, and our thoughts are with all parties affected. Violence has no place in our community, and we strongly condemn any form of aggression.”

The Athletic also reported that TopShelf said they are "actively addressing this matter internally."

Nehemiah Mitchell, the co-founder of We Ball Sports, told The Athletic that everyone involved was removed from the event, including Newton. Mitchell also said TopShelf beat C1N, which Newton founded, in a "heated game."

Newton won the 2010 Heisman Trophy at Auburn, leading the Tigers to the 2011 National Championship over Oregon. He was then selected first overall in the 2011 NFL Draft after his lone season at Auburn.

The quarterback also won the 2015 NFL MVP with the Carolina Panthers and holds the NFL record for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback (75).

Even among NFL players, Newton stood tall. At 6-foot-5, 245 pounds, he was known for his bruising running style in the NFL in addition to his big arm.

When compared to the people in the video, he looks even bigger, particularly given how he handled himself against what appeared to be multiple would-be assailants.
