Two Texas A&M players facing assault charges, suspended from team

NEW: Follow on facebook -

Two of Texas A&M’s most important defensive players both face assault charges, according to The Eagle. Corner Deshazor Everett and safety Floyd Raven each face two counts of assault, and both will be charged with criminal mischief.

Raven turned himself into the Brazos County jail about 11 a.m. and should be released on $4,000 bail. Everett has not turned himself in yet, despite being aware there’s a warrant for his arrest.

Here’s the skinny from The Eagle:

Court documents state two men received injuries after being struck in the face by Everett and Raven during an April 30 dispute at an apartment complex in College Station. More than $500 in damage was caused to a 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe when the student athletes pounded and kicked the vehicle at the scene of the fight, the documents state.

Raven and Everett are two of the prominent key cogs for Mark Snyder’s defense entering 2013. Everett made 56 tackles and two INTs last year, while Raven added 16 tackles and one INT.

What are the chances these two return for week three’s showdown against Alabama?

  1. If they can get past the legal consequences, they’ll probably serve a very convenient two-game suspension.

  2. Well …if Sumlin handles this like he did Johnny Nickname’s little incident last year they’ll start every game.
