After a week off, Alex & Fitz are back with the fifth episode of the "Tuesday Night Lights" podcast.

To lead things off, there's a pair of Bowling Green football coaches arrested at a local bar after being cited with assault for allegedly fighting with the bar staff.

Marcus White, 34, from Alabama, and Kenneth Williams II, 23, from Texas, were cited after the staff at Liquid bar, 238 N. Main St., called Bowling Green police for help Sunday at 2:22 a.m.

According to BG Police Major Justin White, the report from the incident said Marcus White and Williams were reportedly refusing to leave the bar at closing time, so the bar staff attempted to escort them out.

"They became belligerent with bar staff," Justin White said.

Marcus White allegedly punched one employee in the face, breaking his glasses. Williams reportedly punched another employee twice in the face, busting his lip.

Marcus White reportedly told police that he felt the bar staff was being aggressive and wasn’t giving him enough time to leave the bar. Neither he nor Williams were taken to jail.

After being a UDFA signee for the Cincinnati Bengals, Matt Johnson has been waived while former Buffalo Bulls quarterback Joe Licata signs with the team in his place.

Also, since this podcast thing is actually off the ground, we'll be taking #HustleBag questions! Don't be lame about them.
