Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reported that Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey could be charged with misdemeanor battery as early as Friday as a result of his actions at a Miami nightclub on July 12.
Pouncey may be charged, but it won’t happen on Friday. That’s the word from State Attorney’s Office in Florida, which is charged with reviewing the evidence gathered by the Miami Beach police and determining the next course of action.
“I guarantee you there won’t be a charge today,” State Attorney’s Office spokesman Ed Griffith said, via the Herald. “We will be reviewing all of the evidence from the police, as well as any evidence presented by attorneys of the related parties.”
According to Beasley, the police feel there is enough evidence to move forward with a charge against Pouncey. The Steelers center has been accused of punching a woman, one of three victims suing Maurkice and his brother Mike, who won’t be charged, for their actions during the altercation.
