Report: FSU kicker Aguayo 'jumped' by shuttered fraternity's members over 2016 UF game

Florida State Seminole's kicker Ricky Aguayo told police after the 2016 rivalry game with the University of Florida Gators he was beaten by members of a fraternity now shuttered following an investigation into the death of one of its pledges.

According to Tallahassee Police records, Aguayo reported being “jumped” in front of the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity house on College Avenue over missed field goals during FSU’s 31-13 win against UF.

The documents were one of about two dozen police reports so far obtained in a public records request related to the fraternity after pledge Andrew Coffey died at an off-campus party on Nov. 3.

Since January 2015, TPD has responded to the fraternity house for several noise complaints stemming from large parties, a report of an ATM stolen from inside the two-story building and a report of a small fire. 

Aguayo told TPD he was walking by the fraternity house at about 3 a.m. on Dec. 2 when people on the front porch began to yell at him about his performance in the game.

“He said they were giving him a hard time about missed field goals during the Florida game,” officers wrote in their report. “He said he was rushed by several of the members of the fraternity…and was punched in the face.”

Aguayo missed two of three field goals in the game. The sophomore is 15 of 18 for field goals this year and has made 33 extra points. He earned an All-ACC honorable mention on Monday.   

Police noted blood on Aguayo’s face and shirt, which had been ripped, and swelling consistent with being punched.

Aguayo declined medical treatment and refused to press charges but called FSU tight end, redshirt junior Ryan Izzo to the house to help him, according to police documents. The fight was over by the time Izzo arrived, and he declined to provide a statement saying he was there to get Aguayo home.

Witnesses who were driving by during the fight said they had to stop because the ruckus spilled into the street. As they drove by during the scuffle, Aguayo was thrown into the witnesses' vehicle, they told police. The two men then tried to help break up the fight.

A member of the fraternity told investigators he heard about the fight and went outside. He said he was hit in the face four times in the fracas.The fraternity member was intoxicated, TPD wrote in its report, and his injuries were not consistent with being punched, according to court documents. 

No one involved in the incident asked for medical attention and no one wanted to press charges.
