The younger brother of San Francisco 49ers quarterback C.J. Beathard was fatally stabbed in a fight outside a Nashville bar early Saturday, according to police.
Clayton Beathard, 22, and Paul Trapeni III, 21, were both killed in the fight. WSMV-TV reported that Clayton Beathard was also the grandson of NFL hall-of-famer Bobby Beathard.
The stabbing occurred during a fight that involved several people outside a bar, Nashville police said. “The fatal stabbings appear to have resulted from an argument over a woman that began inside Dogwood Bar and then turned physical when the parties went outside,” the police said.
Clayton Beathard and Trapeni were treated at Vanderbilt University Medical Center before they were pronounced dead, police said. A third victim has been released from the hospital.
