The Pouncey brothers have maintained that they were not involved in an physical altercation at a Miami nightclub that left three people injured, but the lawyer for the trio says that Miami Beach police disagree.
Attorney Marwan Porter told Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald that police have indicated to him that Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey will be charged with misdemeanor battery as a result of his actions. Maurkice allegedly punched one of the injured parties in the face and, per the report, could be formally charged on Friday. Beasley also reports that Dolphins center Mike Pouncey is not expected to be charged.
A police spokeswoman told the Herald that a final meeting between police and prosecutors is still pending and that no charges would come until it takes place. Jeff Ostrow, the attorney for the Pounceys, said that he did not believe that an assistant state attorney had been assigned to review the case.
“Until such time, no charges can be formally filed against either of my clients,” Ostrow said. “From what we’ve discovered, the evidence supporting the battery claims is flimsy, at best.”
Ostrow added that he thought the flimsiness of the evidence would lead the authorities to pass on charging either of his clients and has previously threatened a countersuit against Porter’s clients if they sue the Pouncey brothers.
