The guy who sucker-punched Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert in a South Dakota bar last month talked to TMZ Sports and shared his side of the story. Kyle Hadala, who was arrested on assault charges, also revealed that he suffered serious injuries after throwing his sucker-punch.
Hadala insists Goedert and his friends had been "harassing" them at a previous bar over the choice of music they were playing on the jukebox.
"They were extremely aggressive and disrespectful," Hadala says.
The group moved to a new spot -- the Zoo Bar -- but Hadala says Goedert and his crew followed them with bad intentions. Very soon, according to Hadala, the situation escalated.
"They picked out my smaller colleague from the group, got in his face, and made very threatening remarks toward his personal well-being," Hadala tells us.
"Then one of his crew told my other colleague, and I quote, 'You’re just a fat f**king pussy. I'll beat the s*** out of you.'"
Hadala says Dallas put his hand on his friend -- which you can see in the video ... and that's when Hadala decided to take action.
If what Hadala is saying is true then Goedert and his friends were acting like dicks and Goedert probably deserved the hands, but if you want to give him the hands then square up with him.
The sucker-punch is still a bitch move and anything that happened after the sucker-punch is justifiable.
