March 4th, 2009 12:00 am by Staff Report

According to a report in the Bristol Herald-Courier Jeff Roberts' fans and friend don't believe police reports that say Roberts was the aggressor in a fight that resulted in his death.

 Roberts’ friends believe Duc Thach, a Fort Campbell, Ky. soldier, did not act in self-defense when he punched Roberts in the face Feb. 23 outside Machiavelli’s restaurant in downtown Bristol. Roberts fell and hit his head on a roadside curb.

Bristol Tennessee Police Capt. Charlie Thomas, who would not comment in great detail, said Tuesday the investigation remains open pending the results of an autopsy, which could take up to 90 days.
