Recent NFL draft pick facing assault charge after allegedly punching pregnant woman
The Tennessee Titans may have gotten more than they bargained for when they drafted Rashad Weaver out of Pitt.
Just days after the Titans selected Weaver in the fourth round of the 2021 NFL Draft, it is being reported that the former Pitt pass rusher is facing a count of simple assault after allegedly punching pregnant woman.
Here are the details from CBS Pittsburgh:
Police say back on April 18 Weaver punched a pregnant woman after an argument at the Foxtail Bar on the South Side. The woman later told police she had to receive treatment at a local hospital for a concussion she sustained.
Weaver was back home in Florida this weekend as he was drafted by the Tennessee Titans.
He has a court date back here in Pittsburgh on October 5.
