After I see how good he is I'll make a judgement on his guilt or innocence 

A Titan defender that can hit somebody!  I like it

They released her at the scene.  She went to the hospital 4 days later.  Almost like she found out who he was.....$$$$$

I'm not sure which is worse...1) either they knew and didn't care or 2) they somehow didn't know and the scouting department failed yet again.

 

In JRob we trust!!

Those at the scene said a large man, later identified as Mr. Weaver, punched the woman, Demetria Navjelis. Mr. Weaver was not at the scene when officers arrived. Ms. Navjelis was checked by a medic and released.

 

One witness said she saw Mr. Weaver punch Ms. Navjelis. Another witness said she did not see Mr. Weaver punch Ms. Navjelis but did see her fall to the ground. Officer Anderson O’Kelly noted in the complaint that he observed no injury consistent with a punch to the head.

 

Five minutes prior to the incident, Mr. Weaver and Ms. Navjelis got into an argument at the Foxtail bar at 1601 E. Carson St., according to the complaint. Officer O’Kelly and other officers separated Mr. Weaver and Ms. Navjelis after he said she spilled a drink on him. Mr. Navjelis later told officers that she threw her drink at him during the argument.

Ms. Navjelis and her friends left the bar and headed toward South 17th Street. Mr. Weaver left and went down South 16th Street.

 

Before leaving the bar, Mr. Weaver “stated to other officers on scene that he had no problem hitting a female if they needed it,” according to the complaint.

 

Officer O’Kelly contacted Ms. Navjelis on April 25 about the incident. She said she went to Ohio Valley Hospital on April 22 because she was vomiting. At the hospital, she was diagnosed with a concussion, according to the complaint.

And the idiot was dumb enough to tell police officers he has no problem hitting a woman if she needs it? What is up with J-Rob and these guys with character issues?


/facepalm

In fairness, the complaint was filed on Friday and perhaps wasn't even public record until today. 

 

Got to let the process play out.

Is this why he fell to the 4th round?  You can't be going around punching baby mommas in the head.  Nashville doesn't take kindly to that.  It's a bad look for Jrob if he didn't know about it and an even worse look if he did.

She was drinking in a bar. No reason to think she is pregnant.

 

Still, while there may be some rare circumstances where it’s justifiable for a 260 pound man to punch a woman, this doesn’t sound like one of them…
