New evidence has surfaced showing Nebraska defensive coordinator Carl Pelini confronting a credentialed member of the media after the Cornhuskers lost to Texas A&M, 9-6, Saturday night at College Station.
Brandon Jones, the co-owner and president of the independent website TexAgs, said he was on the field to shoot the postgame celebration when he noticed a verbal altercation between Pelini and another man who has not been identified.
"I stopped and turned my camera toward the conversation," Jones writes in a post. "Pelini was angry and cursing at the other man. He initially turned to walk away, then apparently noticed me shooting video of the incident. He was approximately ten feet from me when he turned around and came in my direction.
"Since I had the camera raised over my head, I was in a particularly unfavorable position to deal with someone charging at me. By instinct, I lowered my arms (and the camera). Pelini immediately grabbed my camera, now roughly at waist level in front of me. He tried to wrestle the camera with both hands.
"At some point in the struggle over the camera, we were face to face and I asked him, 'Man, what are you doing?' He didn't answer me, but he paused briefly. He then pulled the camera again, but instead of taking it, he ripped two pieces off of it, both components of the camera's eyepiece. Once he no longer had a grip on the camera itself, he tossed the pieces he pulled off into the crowd and stormed away."
The site posted several images of the incident taken from the stands that back Jones' claim. It also spliced the images into the original video shot by Jones to show a timeline of the skirmish. That video is posted above.
Nebraska coach Bo Pelini, the brother of Carl, was asked Monday about the incident. His comments were made before TexAgs published its post.
Pelini said his brother was trying to pull a Cornhusker player out of a group of people who encountered Jones. The player was earlier reported to be Kyler Reed, but as you can see from the image below, neither Reed (No. 25) or any other Nebraska player are close to Pelini or Robinson as the incident unfolds.
