Alabama DB Deionte Thompson indicted in Texas assault case
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — The Beaumont Enterprise is reporting Alabama safety Deionte Thompson and three other men have been indicted on charges stemming from a spring break fight.
The 20-year-old Thompson faces a second-degree felony charge of aggravated assault, causing serious bodily injury, according to the newspaper.
Also charged are 19-year-old Morris Joseph, Jr., 19-year-old Rufus Joseph and 21-year-old Daletredricc Wolfford.
A Galveston County grand jury returned the indictments last week, saying the four men caused “serious bodily injury to Noah Frillou” by hitting or kicking the 18-year-old.
Thompson is a redshirt sophomore at Alabama. He has played in eight games this season and made 12 tackles.
Alabama coach Nick Saban said in a statement: “We are not going to make any judgments until that (legal) process has been completed.”
