Two Texas A&M football players charged with assault
Texas A&M defensive backs DeShazor Everett and Floyd Raven Sr., both of whom were expected to start for the Aggies, have been charged with misdemeanor assault and criminal mischief after a fight earlier this year at an apartment complex.
The incident occurred in April, when the two allegedly were part of a group of people who attacked two people as they climbed out of a vehicle. According to police reports, Everett told police that he was about to get involved in the fight but didn’t. Instead, Everett told police that he and Raven returned to Everett’s apartment.
Accorinding to a report by TheEagle.com, which broke the story, each player is facing two counts of assault causing bodily injury, a misdemeanor (Class A) punishable by up to one year in jail.
Both surrendered at the Brazos County Jail on Monday. The players were also suspended from team activities, but the school is allowing them to continue their studies.
Police say two people reported being
attacked at the apartment complex by a group that included Everett and
Raven. Police say they both had visible injuries from the attack, and a
car was damaged. Bond was set at $5,000 for Everett, and Raven was free
on $4,000 bond.
