Found March 23, 2013 on Fox Sports Ohio:
Cleveland Browns running back Trent Richardson has been named in a civil lawsuit alleging verbal and physical abuse, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. The lawsuit, filed on Friday in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court in Cleveland, names Richardson, his girlfriend, Sevina Fatu, and two other unidentified women. The complaint also names Richardson's brother, Terrell.The lawsuit is being brought by two Cleveland-area women, Krystal Jones and Kathleen Hunter, who claim that the incident occurred on Dec. 9, 2012, following a night out at the Rumors nightclub. After celebrating a Cleveland Browns victory at the nightclub, Jones and Hunter were allegedly invited to continue the celebration in the early morning hours at Richardson's home in Columbia Station. After arriving, the two inquired as to the whereabouts of Trent's brother Terrell Richardson, who the complaint states "had a relationship" during 2012 with Jones. The two women were asked to leave. After they did so, according to the complaint, Trent Richardson "became enraged", accusing the two of slamming a door and "disrespecting his house". From there, the lawsuit alleges that Richardson slammed his fist into the hood of Jones' car, causing 1,500 in damage, and then blocked the vehicle so that the plaintiffs could not leave. Richardson, according to the complaint, called for his girlfriend to attack Jones and Hunter, which resulted in Fatu and two other unidentified women "pummeling Hunter with fists" and pulling her from her car by her hair. At this time, neither the Cleveland Browns nor Richardson have commented on the allegations. Richardson has also recently been in the news for football-related reasons. His hit of Eagles safety Kurt Coleman was screened by NFL executives prior to the development of a the league's new "crown rule", which dictates that running backs leading with their helmets may subject their teams to a fifteen-15-yard penalty. Richardson, the third pick in last year's draft, told a radio station on Friday that he doesn't believe that he can comply with the new rule.
