Titans rookie Howard pleads no contest to assault

On Tuesday, Titans rookie defensive lineman David Howard entered a plea of no contest to a charge of misdemeanor assault.  Howard, a product of Brown University, was arrested in Rhode Island in April of 2009 for allegedly beating up a patron at a bar for which he bounced.

According to Howard’s attorney, the charge will be expunged from the rookie’s record if he stays out of trouble for a year.  
Howard was the 241st overall pick in April’s draft.  The Titans almost certainly were aware of the incident before selecting him.  It occurred before Howard entered the NFL, and is unlikely to affect his playing status this season.

  1. he did not beat up a woman, his job was a bouncer, and the prosecutor decided to give him a small break. I think we should, also.

  2. As a Brown University student and occasional patron of Fish Co., the bar this fight happened at, I feel honored in many ways.
