A Baltimore Ravens player was arrested in Key West early Sunday on two charges of misdemeanor battery.

Jah Reid, 25, was being held on $2,000 bond following his arrest at 2 a.m. at the Red Garter, a strip club at 208 Duval St.

According to a Key West Police Department report, Reid and Edmond Mussa, 21, bumped into each other at the bar. They exchanged words, then Reid allegedly head-butted Mussa, punched him until he hit the floor and started kicking him.

When security guard David Smith tried to break up the fight, Reid allegedly punched him in the face. While that was going on, Benjamin Buxton, 23, who apparently was with Reid, entered the fray and started punching Mussa, according to the report.

Another security guard, Jason Martinez, tried to pull Buxton off Mussa, and Buxton started punching Martinez. Buxton was arrested for battery along with Reid.

Reid, a 6-foot-7, 335-pound tackle from Haines City, Fla., was drafted in 2011 in the third round of the NFL draft out of the University of Central Florida.
