COLLEGE STATION, Texas — A pair of Texas A&M football players are accused of being involved in an April altercation, according to a report by KBTX. One had been arrested for it as of late Monday morning.
Floyd Raven Sr., 20, faces two charges of assault causing bodily injury and one charge of criminal mischief for an April 7 incident that also allegedly involved Deshazor Everett, 21.
Raven was jailed late Monday morning, with bond set at $4,000 for each of the three charges he faces. Everett had not been arrested as of early Monday afternoon.
According to a police report, the two victims and witnesses told police that there had originally been an altercation at the Hookah Station on Northgate early on April 7 when Raven and Everett had been spraying champagne, angering another group. There were reportedly no punches thrown, and police and bouncers broke the fight up.
Following the bar confrontation, the two eventual victims and others in their vehicle say they returned to the Parkway Place Apartments on FM 2818. People in that group say two in the SUV were pulled out by a large group of men who punched and kicked them.
Raven and Everett were identified by the victims and witnesses as being among the group.
Police would later interview the two players, who both admitted that there had been an altercation at Hookah Station, and that they were later driven to the apartment complex. Everett and Raven said eight to 10 unknown men joined them.
When the victims’ SUV pulled in to the complex, the players said the group approached the vehicle intending to finish what they say the others had started at the bar.
Everett told police he came face-to-face with one of the two that had been pulled out of the vehicle, but that someone else punched that person and knocked him down.
Raven said a person he had had problems with at the bar threw a punch at him and missed. Raven told police he followed up with two punches and knocked the man down.
One of the victims said there was nearly $1,400 in damage done to his SUV in the incident.
Both players are junior defensive backs from Louisiana and projected as starters for the upcoming season. Everett made a key goal line interception in A&M’s upset win over Alabama last season.
