According to Tupelo Police Sgt. James King, of the Street Crimes Unit, officers looked for the man who allegedly assaulted the 22-year-old junior Mississippi State University wide receiver with a champagne bottle, but he had already fled the scene.
King said nobody on the scene knew who the assailant was, and the police are still looking.
Bumphis suffered a broken tooth and a laceration to his neck during the incident. He was arrested for public drunkenness and disorderly conduct.
Tupelo Police Maj. Jackie Clayton said Bumphis was outside the Atlanta Bar & Grill shouting and cursing when officers arrived. Police tried for several minutes to calm him down, but he was not cooperative.
