Terrell Owens, a Pro Football Hall of Fame wide receiver, assaulted a man over the weekend in Southern California, claiming self-defence on Monday.

The argument began late Saturday in Inglewood after Owens, best known for his time with the San Francisco 49ers before moving on to spectacular seasons with the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles, went shopping at a CVS Pharmacy.

In an interview, Monday afternoon, Owens, 48, said the TMZ video accurately captured the incident but did not catch what led up to it.

When Owens entered the store, a customer approached him and identified himself as a San Francisco 49ers fan, and they exchanged pleasantries, according to Owens.

Before they all made their purchases and headed outside, a second customer approached and threatened the 49ers fan, according to Owens.

“The person I ended up fighting was basically intimidating a guy in the store, a fan of mine,” Owens explained.

“He approached both of us as we walked out, and I was attempting to keep this person from jumping on the fan. I attempted to de-escalate or de-fuse the situation. He was adamant about beating up the guy. I didn’t want that to happen.”

Owens stated that he and a store employee who had also come outside believed they had successfully calmed the situation and kept the second client away from the first.

“Then he swung on me when he thought I wasn’t looking,” Owens claimed of the nearly missed punch. “I went into ready defence mode at that time. Not only for myself but also for the other person.”

According to TMZ, the individual who was punched by Owens did not call the cops

An Inglewood police officer could not be reached for comment on Monday.

Even two days later, Owens said he still hasn’t figured out why the man was so hostile to the 49ers fan.

“I’m not sure. He was staring at the person the whole time “Owens remembered.

“He stated that the man said something to him. But the fan was on the phone at the time I was speaking with him. He was on the phone when he spoke to me. So maybe he misinterpreted the guy saying something to him, but I’m not sure.” Owens claimed he divides his time between Southern California and Florida.

This year, Owens shared a video of a fight with a Florida neighbour who had complained about his driving and contacted the cops.
