Titans fourth-round NFL draft pick Rashad Weaver has been charged with simple assault stemming from an incident on April 18th that left a woman lying on the ground. There are conflicting reports about how she ended up on the ground.
The woman would eventually seek medical treatment for a concussion. It all started when she spilled a drink on the 270 pound former Pitt linebacker.
According to the police report, officers found a woman lying on the ground surrounded by a group of people on South 17th Street between East Carson and Bingham streets.
Weaver was not on the scene when the police arrived. One witness account said Weaver punched the woman. Another witness said she saw the woman fall to the ground but did not see Weaver punch her. The woman didn't have any injury consistent with a punch to the head, according to the criminal complaint filed by Officer Anderson O'Kelly on Friday.
O'Kelly followed up with the woman on April 25, and she told him that she went to Ohio Valley Hospital on April 22 because she was vomiting. The complaint said that the woman was diagnosed with a concussion at the hospital.
The incident stems from an argument that Weaver and the woman got into at a bar. Weaver told officers who separated the two at the bar that the woman threw her drink on him while they were arguing. The woman told the police that she spilled her drink on Weaver.
Not a great way to start one's NFL career. The last draft pick the Titans selected who ran into problems right out of the gate, is already out of football making shitty rap music now.
In other words it can be a slippery slope. One minute you're getting ready for the draft, the next minute you're handing out concussions to women. Before you know it you're out of the league.
