Trent Richardson named in assault suit in Cleveland

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

Richardson, the third overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, is one of five people named in a civil suit accusing the group of physically and verbally assaulting two women in the early morning of Dec. 10.

Browns running back Trent Richardson has found himself in a bit of legal hot water, just a few days after claiming the league instituted the "Crown Rule" because of him.

Richardson, his brother, Terrell, and his girlfriend, Sevina Fatu, and two unidentified women are named in a civil suit accusing the group of physically and verbally assaulting the accusers, Krystal Jones and Kathleen Hunter, at an after-hours party at Richardson's Columbia Station, Ohio, home Dec. 10.

According to the report, Richardson kicked the two accusers out of his house, and upon their exit, he stood behind their car and ordered Terrell Richardson, Fatu and the two unidentified women to attack the plaintiffs.

Allegedly, Fatu opened the car door, bludgeoned Hunter with her hands and feet. Upon finishing with Hunter, the group went after Jones on the other side.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer, the source that broke the story, said the Browns had no comment at this time.
