Titans guard Sebastian Tretola treated after getting 'grazed' by bullet
Sebastian Tretola is back in the news again for the wrong reasons.
The second-year Titans guard was shot early Sunday morning in Arkansas. He was treated at a local hospital and released after being grazed by a bullet in his lower leg.
Police in in Fayetteville, Ark., are investigating the incident, which took place around 2 a.m.
Tretola, 25, was a sixth-round pick from Arkansas in the 2016 NFL Draft. Fayetteville television station KNWA first reported the incident after a family member confirmed the shooting that occurred in the parking lot of an apartment complex.
The Titans released a statement Sunday night and said the team had been informed of the incident.
"We are aware of the reports that Sebastian received treatment for a wound when he was grazed by a bullet," the statement said. "He has been released from the hospital and is thankful for only a minor injury."
Tretola, who played in one game last season as a rookie, was involved in an incident earlier this year when he and Titans receiver Tajae Sharpe were accused of assaulting a man outside of a Nashville bar. Neither player was charged in the alleged assault that took place in April, but a civil case is pending.
