A&M defensive back duo charged
Two projected Texas A&M starters, charged with two counts of misdemeanor assault and one count of criminal mischief stemming from an April incident in College Station, Texas, were released from jail Monday.
Senior safety Floyd Raven Sr., 20, and junior cornerback Deshazor Everett, 21, each turned themselves in and were released from jail Monday afternoon, according to the Brazos County Sheriff's official website. Warrants for Raven and Everett were issued on Friday, Brazos County sheriff Chris Kirk told ESPN on Monday.
Neither Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin nor athletic director Eric Hyman could be reached for comment.
Per Texas A&M athletics department policy, they both are suspended from all team activities, with the exception of academics and medical, pending further investigation into the matter.
Court documents obtained by TheEagle.com indicate that on April 30 two men received injuries after being struck in the face by Everett and Raven during a dispute at a College Station apartment complex. The documents state more than $500 in damage to a 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe when Everett and Raven pounded and kicked the vehicle at the scene of the fight.
The fight apparently started at a bar when Everett and Raven sprayed champagne into a crowd, TheEagle.com reported based on the arrest report. Pushing and shoving ensued, but before a fight started it was broken up by College Station police and bouncers at the club, according to the arrest report.
The arrest report also said that Everett admitted to police the two players were involved in the altercation at the bar, and when they later saw the men from the bar pull up to Everett's complex, they were going to "finish what they started at the bar," TheEagle.com reported.
Everett made perhaps the Aggies' biggest defensive play of last season, intercepting A.J. McCarron's fourth-and-goal pass with 1:36 remaining in Texas A&M's 29-24 victory at Alabama.
