Miss. State WR Chad Bumphis, 22, was arrested by Tupelo police on New Year’s Day at a downtown Tupelo bar. Although police claimed he was drunk and disorderly, the MSU star says he was doing nothing but posing for pictures when all of a sudden bottle started flying at his head.

“I’m putting on for y’all and still got haters n my own city!!!” Bumphis tweeted. “It’s crazy how life works.”

According to the Northeast Mississippi Journal, the incident was a “big group fight” in which several people were arrested, including Bumphis:

Sgt. Rodricus Hurst said Bumphis, a former Tupelo High School standout, was involved in a “big group fight” at the Atlanta Bar & Grill in downtown Tupelo, and several other people were arrested. Hurst said Bumphis got hit in the neck by a glass bottle and suffered a cut, but that he did not injure anybody.

Bumphis insists he  act disorderly and has tweeted his claims to innocence.
“I do want the bulldog nation to know I did nothing wrong,” he tweeted shortly after being released on a $700 bond. “I’m taking picture with fans and apparently it make people mad.”
He added: “Im taking pictures with fans an get attacked with bottles. Ask anyone who was there, they know! But its all good. Ill bounce back!! #IDoThis
