Report: Recent NFL draft pick may face assault charge for allegedly punching pregnant woman
A former Pitt defensive end and recent NFL draft pick is facing an assault charge after allegedly punching a pregnant woman, according to reports.
CBS Pittsburgh reported that Rashad Weaver, who was selected by the Tennessee Titans in the fourth round of the 2021 NFL Draft, is facing a count of simple assault for punching a pregnant woman last month. The alleged incident occurred on April 18.
From the report from CBS:
Police say back on April 18 Weaver punched a pregnant woman after an argument at the Foxtail Bar on the South Side. The woman later told police she had to receive treatment at a local hospital for a concussion she sustained.
Weaver was back home in Florida this weekend as he was drafted by the Tennessee Titans.
He has a court date back here in Pittsburgh on October 5.
Weaver was at Pitt from 2016 through 2020, redshirting his first season and missing the 2019 campaign because of an injury. He played in 34 career games for the Panthers.
