It’s quickly looking like receiver Justin Hunter won’t be playing football in the near future.
According to Terry McCormick of 247Sports.com, the person allegedly assaulted by Hunter on July 3 in Virginia Beach suffered “serious, but not life-threatning injuries.”
That’s the description provided to McCormick by officer James Cason of the Virginia Beach Police Department regarding the “brawl” that happened inside the Sandbar Raw Bar.
The injured person came forward after the incident and pressed charges. Cason said Hunter “became a suspect during the investigation.” It’s possible that police have seen surveillance video showing Hunter doing whatever he did to be accused of stabbing, cutting, and wounding the alleged victim.
Hunter will be arraigned on Tuesday, and it’s likely a matter of time before the NFL places him on paid leave until the criminal case is resolved. The real question is whether the Titans will sever ties with Hunter before that happens.
