Witnesses say Giddens started fight

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ Witnesses tell a Kansas City newspaper that former Oklahoma City prep star J-R Giddens was the primary instigator of a fight outside a bar that led to his stabbing.

The 20-year-old sophomore is expected to be on crutches for at least six weeks after the artery in his right calf was severed during the fight.

Four witnesses told The Kansas City Star that Giddens and at least 10 other men attacked Jeremiah Creswell outside the Moon Bar on May 19th.

Witnesses say Creswell was beaten with fists, bricks and bottles, and kicked. He used a four-inch folding knife to stab some of the attackers.

Giddens denied provoking the fight.
