Elvis Dumervil is encouraged to exercise aggression and tenacity on the football field, but he was recently arrested for displaying these character traits outside of the football stadium. Dumervil was taken into custody on Saturday, July 14th, after he was allegedly reported committing aggravated assault with a firearm.
The NFL player was allegedly driving his Land Rover when he was cut off by another driver. The incident report goes on to say that Dumervil was agitated, and made threats at the other driver by honking his horn. The person who had cut him off honked back and the two exchanged threats. Dumervil was driving a friend in his vehicle, and they chose to get out of their car and approach their offender. As they moved towards the angry women, sources say that both men lifted their shirts and displayed firearms. The victim was worried for her life and tried to drive away from the incident.
Despite the report, Dumervil’s lawyer says that the football player was not charged with aggravated assault and that the incident never even took place. He says that once there is a full investigation, he is certain that Mr. Dumervil will be let go without any punishments to serve. The athlete is currently in a Florida jail with a bond set at $7,500. He is the second Bronco’s player to be taken to jail in the past year. His teammate D.J. William’s is set to appear in court in August to deal with his DUI charge.
While Dumervile is yet to prove his innocence, he couldn’t do it without the help of a great criminal defense lawyer. If you live in the Miami area and have been charged with aggravated assault, you could face a felony charge. This could lead to years in prison.
