Panama City Beach, Florida- Mississippi State University football team quarterback Dak Prescott was assaulted while on a Spring Break vacation in Panama City.

Prescott, along with two other Mississippi State players — Torrey Dale and Damien Williams, were attacked by a group of men while at a concert performed by Atlanta rapper, Waka Flocka Flame.

Prescott, seen in the video wearing the bright green, yellow, pink, and blue trunks was wobbling, struggling to get up after being assaulted by the other men.

The quarterback confirms that he’s okay and warned other spring breakers to stay safe. Prescott tweeted last Monday night March 9th, “Thanks for all the Concerns and Prayers! I’m okay and ready to get back to Starkville. Ignorance happens! Be safe on Spring Break!”

Pictures showed Prescott with bloody cuts on his chest and face from being hit with a bottle. A spokesman for Prescott told ESPN he did not have to go to the hospital.

No one was arrested and Prescott says he did not want to press charges against the young men.
