University officials confirmed head coach Rod Reed dismissed Lee from the sideline immediately, and on Monday, it was announced that the 22-year-old senior had been expelled from school.

The Post has reached out to Nashville police and Tennessee State University police to see if any further action will be taken against Lee, and will update this post if needed. According to the Tennessean, Greenstone was walking down the sideline telling players get back up while the offense was on the field just prior to the incident. There is as of now no explanation of what led to Lee swinging on Greenstone.
