The father of Houston Texans linebacker Jadeveon Clowney, the top pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, was charged with attempted murder after allegedly firing gunshots outside a strip club.

David Morgan, whose nickname is “Chilli Bean,” allegedly shot at an employee of the Crazy Horse Showclub in Rock Hill on Tuesday morning after Morgan was kicked out of the club for sitting on the stage.

The victim saw Morgan near the back of the building around 2:15 a.m. when Morgan began shooting, according to the police report obtained by The Herald in South Carolina. The victim said he shot back.

Morgan has previous convictions for assault and battery and burglary and spent several years in jail while Clowney was a teenager. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison in 1995 on a burglary conviction. Clowney played at South Pointe High School in Rock Hill and went on to star at University of South Carolina.

Two guns were recovered at the scene, and police later found Morgan at Piedmont Medical Center with a gunshot wound in one of his shoulders.

In addition to attempted murder, Morgan was charged with possession of a weapon during a violent crime.

The Herald said Clowney was “highly upset” after his mother and grandfather informed him of the incident. Clowney is currently on the physically unable to perform list as he’s recovering from microfracture surgery on his knee.
