Following up on a story posted here at NFLGRIDIRONGAB earlier in the week, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najeh Davenport has been charged with three counts (all misdemeanors) for his alleged role in a domestic incident in Cleveland, OH last week.
Specifically, Cleveland authorities charged Davenport with committing domestic violence, endangering children and unlawful restraint during a custody dispute with the mother, Anita Person over their 5-year-old child. Assuming that Davenport is convicted of either domestic violence or endangering children (both are first-degree misdemeanors), Davenport stands to serve up to 180 days in jail and $1,000 in fines. If convicted of the lesser charge of unlawful restraint (a third-degree misdemeanor), he is looking at up to 60 days in jail and $500 in fines.
According to the report by the Post-Gazette, Davenport informed investigators in the case that he would be willing to make a statement to police with an attorney, but Cleveland police lieutenant Thomas Stacho told the Post-Gazette that he was unaware if Davenport had done so.
