Rashad Weaver, the former Pitt defensive end who was drafted by the Tennessee Titans in Round Four on Saturday, was charged with an incident involving a woman that took place in Pittsburgh last month.
In the early hours of April 18, police found a woman on the street, according to the criminal complaint, which was viewed by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. A witness at the scene told police they saw a tall man hit the woman in the head in the street. The man was later identified as Weber, who was not there when the police arrived. Another witness told police that they did not see Weaver hit the woman, but saw her fall to the ground.
The incident that sparked the alleged attack began a few minutes before the strike. According to police reports, the same officers who found the woman on the street had separated her and Weaver in a bar after an argument five minutes earlier. The details of the dispute are not known, but the woman later told police that she threw her drink at Weaver as the dispute progressed.
The criminal complaint said that as Weaver walked out of the bar, "told other local officials that he had no problem beating a woman when they needed it."
The woman was examined by doctors on site and released. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that when police contacted her a few days later about the incident, she told them that she had gone to the hospital after vomiting and was diagnosed with a concussion.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for October 5th. Weaver's attorney Dennis M. Blackwell released a statement on his behalf Monday afternoon.
