Default Taylor being sued in assault incident

MIAMI -- Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor was sued by a man who said the NFL player brandished a gun and repeatedly hit him during a fight last June.

Ryan Hill filed the suit on June 27 in Miami Dade Circuit Court and is seeking $15,000 in damages from Taylor.

The lawsuit states that Hill was bruised, incurred medical expenses and lost wages because of the fight.

Taylor, 23, reached a deal with prosecutors last month after they agreed to drop felony charges against him stemming from the fight. He pleaded no contest to two misdemeanors in the assault case and was sentenced to 18 months probation.

An altercation broke out on June 1, 2005, after Taylor and some friends went looking for people who had allegedly stolen his all-terrain vehicles. Taylor struck Hill "with his fists several times," and called him a thief. After the initial fight, Taylor left and returned to the scene with more friends and "pointed an assault rifle" at Hill, the lawsuit said.

Hill's attorney, Leonardo Canton, said his client tried to run away, but Taylor and his friends chased him with baseball bats.

"What happened to (Hill) is something that is pretty bad, there's no reason for it," Canton said. "He gets beat up and assaulted by Mr. Taylor and had guns pointed at him at a different point."

Taylor's attorney, Richard Sharpstein, called the lawsuit "useless" and ridiculous."

"Hill stole Sean's property. Hill baited him, lured him and suckered him into a fight," Sharpstein said.

Taylor, a former University of Miami standout, signed a seven-year, $18 million contract with the Redskins after he was drafted in 2004. He has six interceptions and 120 tackles in two NFL seasons, but has become almost as well-known for his troubles.

Taylor has been fined seven times during his professional career for late hits and other infractions, including a $17,000 penalty for spitting in the face of Tampa Bay running back Michael Pittman during a January playoff game. He was also fined $25,000 for skipping a mandatory rookie symposium.

Hill is only seeking $15,000??
Seeing how he's not asking for a multi-million dollar settlement it might be in Taylor's best interest to just pay this guy off and be done with it.
