Jefferson Denies Assault Charge

New, comments

Richard Jefferson and his lawyer are vigorously denying misdemeanor assault charges brought by a Minneapolis DA, saying the alleged victim had been "incredibly drunk" and "disrespectful". RJ's lawyer says Jefferson "had grabbed him, put him down" before walking away. Jefferson denied he had choked Lyle Fox and suggested Fox had sought to have him charged so he can later file a civil suit.
