The NY Post has more on Demond Demas allegedly assaulting his girlfriend.
Texas A&M receiver Demond Demas is facing a charge of assault/family violence following an arrest and accusation of assaulting his girlfriend, per multiple reports. The Houston Chronicle reports that the charge against Demas stems from an incident that allegedly occurred on Saturday. A probable cause affidavit states that Demas’ girlfriend alleged that he “pushed her head into a wall” and threw her off a bed after she bit him in the shoulder.
That reportedly caused her top front teeth to go through her bottom lip. She suffered bleeding, loose teeth, swelling and a hole to the bottom of the lip, per the report. Demas, a former five-star recruit, was released from custody on Wednesday. He has been suspended by the university and is not currently a member of the football program.
He was also reportedly accused of hitting a girlfriend last year, though the Brazos County district attorney’s office declined to press charges following an investigation, per the Chronicle. Demas was also arrested for marijuana possession in March 2021.
An interesting subplot is Demas is represented by Tony Buzbee, who is representing the women accusing Deshaun Watson of massage assault.
Here is what Buzbee had to say about the charges.
“We learned that there was a warrant out for the arrest of Demond Demas (Tuesday),” Buzbee said in a statement. “Upon learning of such, Demond insisted upon turning himself which he quickly did. Demond has been accused of a misdemeanor and has now been released on a minimal bond. We look forward to demonstrating that this is all an unfortunate misunderstanding.
“Demond Demas is a solid young man and a generational talent. He looks forward to clearing his name and moving on to be the best student and athlete he can be. In the meantime, we will let the process play itself out and will address the misdemeanor allegation in court, in due course.”
Demas was released on $5k bail.
