Default Maurkice Pouncey To Be Charged With Battery By DA?

Could not find the old thread so posting this here - oh shit

Are authorities on the verge of charging Maurkice Pouncey for his alleged role in a South Beach nightclub brawl?

Yes – and that charge could come as soon as Friday, according to the attorney for the victims, who says he was briefed in recent days by Miami Beach police about their intentions.

Personal injury attorney Marwan Porter said police have indicated that Pouncey, a center for the Pittsburgh Steelers, will be charged with misdemeanor battery.

Dolphins lineman Mike Pouncey, who was with his twin brother at Cameo nightclub the morning of July 12, will apparently not be charged in the incident.,,,

As for Miami Beach police, they would not confirm that a charge was pending, but multiple people apprised of the situation believe it will happen, and that it could come as soon as Friday.


Cannot believe Pouncey put himself in a situation to possibly allow this to happen - but that is a small price to pay for keeping it real I guess

If he agrees to diversion I guess max suspension is 2 games

Not the first nor will it be the last time, a player gets a free pass over charges like these. Sad but true! :(

The NFL already set a stupid precendent with the Ray Rice 2-game fiasco. If they give Pouncey anything more than 2 games-- it is total hypocrisy (well, we already know that about Goodell).

I wish the season would hurry up and start before anything else stupid happens.

Will be interesting to see what the police turned up. I find it sketchy at best, that these victims went to an attorney before going to the police.

I heard there is video of the alleged altercation, and the attorney representing the victims has issued an order not to delete the video.

I hope there is video, and if you think Pouncey is innocent you should too as it could put the money grabbers in legal jeopardy for obstruction of justice and wrongfully accusation.

The other side of the coin is Pouncey attacked a man half his size and also assaulted a woman. If the video shows this, Roger Goodell will act, and the Steelers might be forced to part ways with Pouncey.

Both sides claim witnesses but with Video the truth will come out.

I absolutely disagree with this. Players have every right to go out and enjoy their wealth however they please so long as it's within the law (and their contract if there are other restrictions). A commenter on the story cites anecdotally exactly what I've observed when I've seen Chiefs players hanging out downtown:

Derek Vance · Top Commenter · Lake Worth, Florida
I have seen and broken up hundreds of bar fights. It is amazing just how stupid some people become when they start drinking. I worked as a bouncer in 3 different bars/clubs for 2 1/2 years to put myself through my prerequisites before attending the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. With an acceptance rate of only 9.9% the more prepped you are the better your chances are to become a Cadet. In that time I worked at a club in Denver called "The Church" The building is a very old, Gothic style Church that was built in the early 20th century. Turning such a beautiful Church into a bar never sat right with me. BUT..? I needed the money. All 4 of Denvers professional sport franchise players frequented "The Church" and more times I care to remember the security staff was dragging someone who had drank too much out of the building for harassing the players. I just couldn't "get it" ... One minute you have a perfectly sane, calm person who is relatively benign to the athlete or stars who came there. An hour later they are acting like they've know the guy for years and trying to be part of that persons group of friends. It usually goes wrong when at some point the athlete would get tired of being nice and ask the person to back off.... Then out comes the drunken jerk persona... Drunks are easily offended and their self control is out the window. That little small voice that tells people to shut up and move along moves out for a few hours. Inevitably, there are those who keep pushing and someone gets smacked. Now I wasn't there so I won't condemn either the Pounceys or the dude trying to get paid. But I will say this and say it with confidence. 99.9999999% of the fights involving high profile people and regular every day Jo's are started by the Jo's or Jill's running their mouth and not backing off when asked. I would say "blame it on the booze"... But people must make a choice when they enter a bar... Am I here to have a good time and have a few drinks with my friends.... Or am I here to see how many drinks I can consume before going into a coma.... My advice, if you REALLY would like a high profile person to show you respect. Act like you have been around his/her sort of people your whole life. Just be nice and be respectful. Do THAT and you BOTH will have a much nicer night.
