It might be two days too late, being that he’s released, but the girlfriend of former Steelers running back Chris Rainey says no assault took place.
If you’ve been out of the country, Rainey was arrested for allegedly slapping his girlfriend over his cell phone. There reportedly was an eye-witness who was able to vouch for those events.
According to NFL.com, Rainey’s lawyer read an email that the girl friend supposedly wrote disputing the abuse, and suggesting that the charges be dropped.
The girlfriend’s email said the witnesses were mistaken, and Johnson pointed out that officers found no marks on the woman’s face.
Rainey was released from jail, but told not to have any contact with the woman.
