NFL MVP Cam Newton is in the spotlight after his involvement in a fight at a football tournament in his native Atlanta.

State of play: Two videos posted to X on Sunday show Newton β€” wearing one of his custom-made hats β€” as three people attack him at the top of a set of steps before the shoving and grabbing moves to a fence line.

  • A policeman and event security ended the fight at the WeBall Sports x DynastyU 7v7 tournament at B.E.S.T. Academy, the Associated Press reports.

πŸ’­ Wil's thought bubble: I don't know what started the fight, but I appreciate how Newton's hat stayed in place during the scuffle.
