One victim of the so-called Knockout Game says there is no such "game" or even necessarily a trend, just a media fabrication to make a story out of assault.
That's what James Addlespurger believes, anyway.
The Pittsburgh teacher was seen on video in October 2012 getting hit in the back of the head so hard that he blacked out and fell face-first into the pavement.
Addlespurger says the security footage has been used to identify the supposed "trend," and it's played on TV news shows countless times since.
He won't call the awful attack a "Knockout Game," however.
He simply calls it "assault," and he's not happy about it.
