However, it appears that some reports concerning the accident could be wrong, as a rep for Penn says the truck was never flipped, but the fighter was knocked out when the airbag in the vehicle deployed.
“No one has the facts yet, and from the facts we have looked at, the truck never flipped, there was not extensive damage on it that they say there was, and B.J. was, in fact, knocked out because the front airbag deployed,” Gary Levitt said to Bloody Elbow. “He was taken to the hospital and then a short time later, he was taken for scans because he was knocked out and he was going in and out. Then, they released him from the hospital.”
While the rep’s statement does go against the report of the truck being flipped by Penn, no statement has been made regarding the DUI allegations against Penn at this time.
Penn has had a history of legal and personal issues over the last few years, as the fighter has been accused of domestic violence, has allegedly threatened a farmer with a machete and got into a brawl with a bouncer at a bar.
