Police arrest Florida man for allegedly sucker-punching Dallas Goedert

Dallas Goedert was in South Dakota at the Zoo Bar when a scuffle erupted. That’s when a man, as seen on video, sucker-punched Dallas Goedert in the face.

The Philadelphia Eagles’ star went down immediately, but he is reportedly doing “fine” after suffering the blow to his head.

On Monday, the Aberdeen Police Department released a statement announcing a suspect has been arrested and charged with assault for the incident.

Officers charged Kyle Douglas Hadala, a 29-year-old man from Sarasota, Florida, with one count of simple assault.

Goedert, 25, played college football at South Dakota State University. A second-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, he should be ready for training camp and an even bigger role this upcoming season. Goedert is coming off a career-high 58 receptions, 607 receiving yards and five touchdowns in1 5 games this past season.
