Romero on incident

The St.Petersburg Times has reported that a fan has accused J.C. Romero of assault. The fan, 25-year-old Robert Eaton told the Times that he asked Romero for an autograph after Thursday’s game, and was refused. He then said he made a comment about steroids, and Romero assaulted him.

This is what Romero said:   

“What did he say? That he was drunk and got into a fight? I’m not going to comment on it. I’m trying to be professional and I don’t really want to get into that. Don’t want to make a story out of nothing. .”
