A turbulent offseason has apparently gotten even worse for former Arkansas offensive lineman Sebastian Tretola.
Two months ago, it was reported by USA Today that Tretola and Tennessee Titans teammate Tajae Sharpe were involved in an alleged assault the night of the first round the NFL draft, April 27. In that case, Tretola was alleged to have served as a lookout for Sharpe, who allegedly assaulted the victim. The two teammates are now co-defendants in a $500,000 lawsuit.
But on Sunday, things got even worse for the 2016 sixth-round pick. According to Nate Kuester of KNWA News in Fayetteville, Tretola was shot in the “ankle and leg” not far from the University of Arkansas campus:

According to KNWA News’ TJ Stallbaumer, a family member confirmed Tretola was shot and that he sustained a “very minor” injury “around the ankle.” The report added that the shooting took place around 2 a.m., though no other details had been confirmed.
