Report: Mizzou DE won't be charged in domestic assault case
On Sunday, Mizzou DE Tre’ Williams was arrested for second-degree domestic assault, and was suspended from team activities.
However, on Tuesday, new information came to light in the case, and now it appears the sophomore defender won’t be charged for the incident.
Per Brendan Lavell of the Columbia Missourian, the new information has made it impossible to prosecute the pending case:
A pending second-degree domestic assault charge against current Missouri and former Rock Bridge defensive lineman Tre Williams will not be filed, according to Boone County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Susan Boresi.
“Additional information came forward that made it impossible to prosecute the case,” Boresi said.
What this means for Williams’ availability for the Liberty Bowl remains to be seen, but it seems the legal matter is now closed.
Williams has 20 tackles (five for a loss) and 2.5 sacks so far this season.
