Report: Washington WR facing charges


Washington may have dodged a bullet when it came to its likely starter at quarterback, but the same reportedly can’t be said for for one of the Huskies’ top returning threats in the passing game.

Citing a source with knowledge of the case, the Seattle Times is reporting that UW wide receiver Damore’ea Stringfellow will be charged with two counts of misdemeanor assault in the fourth degree and one count of malicious mischief in connection to an early-February incident.  In that incident, two UW football players were allegedly involved in a pair of assaults Super Bowl Sunday this past February.  The alleged victim told police that he was punched multiple times in the face by the assailants, whom he later identified by looking up their profiles on UW’s official website.

The UW football players were subsequently identified publicly as Stringfellow and quarterback Cyler Miles.

It was reported Sunday that Miles, expected to replace Keith Price as UW’s starter, would not be facing charges.

In 2013, Stringfellow caught 20 passes for 259 yards.  Stringfellow was projected starter as a heading into spring practice, although he, along with Miles, have been suspended and are not participating.
