Draymond Green Sued For Alleged Assault And Battery
We told you about this story last year, when Green was arrested in East Lansing Michigan over a confrontation with a former Michigan State football player Jermaine Edmondson. Edmondson says the run in with Green traumatized him so badly, both because of the physical fight as well as because he received violent threats as a result and now he’s lawyered up with Blac Chyna’s legal eagle Lisa Bloom to get justice.
According to TMZ reports, Edmondson claims Draymond’s friends threw the first blows, attacking him and his girlfriend July 10, 2016 at an East Lansing bar. The following night, Edmondson says he confronted Green, only to be punched in the face by the NBA star. Green was arrested by a cop who witnessed the incident, but Edmondson says his problems only multiplied from that point at Michigan State, where Green is a famous alum. Edmondson quit the football team and left school temporarily, but he claims in his lawsuit that he’s still haunted by the incident and believes he became the butt of jokes as a result of the run in.
“I think about what happened with Draymond every day. I still feel his hand on my jaw.”
Edmondson even says he wakes up crying at night because of the terror he suffered. He is suing Green for assault and battery.
Green pretty much worked out a deal in the criminal case by agreeing to steer clear of legal issues for a year in exchange for having his charge reduced from a misdemeanor to a civil infraction. That year ended last weekend, on July 22nd.
In response to Edmondson’s suit, Draymond’s camp has issued their own statement saying,
“This lawsuit relates to an incident that occurred in East Lansing, Michigan over a year ago, for which Draymond paid a noise violation fine.”
“Draymond looks forward to defending himself and clearing up the misinformation put forth today.”
Do you think this is a problem that can be solved by having money thrown at it? Cuz we’re guessing that’s the only kind of “green” Edmondson is interested in seeing any time soon.
