After an investigation into post-Super Bowl attacks in Seattle, QB Cyler Miles will reportedly not be charged in the incidents while WR Demore'ea Stringfellow will be charged with two counts of misdemeanor assault.
According to the Seattle Times, the charges against Stringfellow are expected to be filed by Thursday. He also is expected to be charged with a count of misdemeanor malicious mischief.
One incident after the Seattle Seahawks beat the Denver Broncos on Sunday, Feb. 2 involved damage to a woman's camera, while in another, a man claimed he was attacked when two men drove up behind him, got out of the car, and started punching him.
The source identified Stringfellow as the suspect who allegedly grabbed a woman and broke her camera lens during a scuffle near a campus-area bonfire shortly after the Seahawks’ Super Bowl victory. In that incident, the female victim told police a man “had attempted to rip a video camera from her hands and then knocked her out.” If the damaged camera lens is valued at more than $700, Stringfellow would face a felony charge; if it’s less than $700, as expected, it would be a misdemeanor charge of malicious mischief.
The paper reported that the King County Prosecutor's Office found no evidence of wrongdoing on Miles' part. They were suspended in the days after the Super Bowl by new Washington coach Chris Petersen for what he termed was a violation of team rules.
Both are still suspended, though it stands to reason that Miles will be reinstated before too long if there won't be any charges. He's the only quarterback with regular season experience on Washington's roster after the graduation of Keith Price. Miles, a freshman, played in eight games last season. He's the leading candidate to start in 2014.
Stringfellow, a sophomore, had 20 catches for 259 yards in 2013.
