Corey Russell after being allegedly assaulted by Jamar Culver at Sidelines Sports Bar last weekend.

According to a statement given to K2 Radio by Russell,

"I am 5"9" 175 lbs and not a fighter. This guy is an animal and needs to be in jail for what he did. This was an unprovoked attack and I will be pursuing retribution in court because of this attack."

Culver, a 6'5" former quarterback for the  Casper Storm,  denied hitting Russell and pleaded not guilty in his initial court appearance on Monday. A jury trial is to be scheduled and Culver, a Casper resident, remains free on a $1,000 bond.
