Spievey gets court-ordered education, can have charges dropped


Lions safety Amari Spievey, who was arrested last month after a dispute with the mother of his child, can have the charges dropped by going through an educational program.

The Middletown Press reports that Spievey was told to enroll in a family violence education program in Middletown Superior Court on Thursday. If he completes the education by June 28 and does not get arrested again, the charges will be dropped.

Spievey faces charges of third-degree assault, risk of injury to a child and disorderly conduct. His girlfriend was charged with risk of injury and disorderly conduct after the two allegedly pushed each other in a dispute about child support.

A third-round pick out of Iowa in 2010, Spievey has started 26 games for the Lions in three seasons.

    Does his girlfriend have to do the same thing? Cause they both sounded pretty stupid coming out of this whole deal.

    Yeah right citynaive, unlike like classy New England guys that get 30 days for assaulting a cop or Tampa for bringing a gun to the airport, need some more examples?

    No mention in other news articles of her having to take them and he has to move out of his house until the classes are completed.

    Is every Lions player a criminal? They, as a whole, seem to have extraordinary difficulty staying out of trouble.
