Two women have filed a lawsuit against Cleveland Browns RB Trent Richardson. According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Krystal Jones and Kathleen Hunter claimed that Richardson, his girlfriend, and his brother, Terrell, verbally and physically assaulted them at Richardson’s home. The incident occurred after the Browns’ December 9 win over the Chiefs.  A celebration at Richardson’s house lasted into the morning hours of Monday, December 10, with Richardson’s girlfriend, Sevina Fatu, inviting Jones and Hunter to attend. The women claim that Richardson at one point asked them to leave and that, while in the driveway, Richardson “verbally accosted” them, “shout[ing] and curs[ing]” that the women has “‘disrespected his house’” by slamming a door.  Richardson then allegedly slammed a fist onto the hood of Jones’ car, causing damage in excess of $1,500. The women claim that, as they tried to leave, Richardson stood behind the car and called for Fatu to come out and “attack” them.  Fatu then “opened the driver’s door and began pummeling” Kathleen Hunter “with her fists.”  Two other unnamed women joined the fray, beating Hunter at the alleged urging of Richardson. Next, the trio allegedly “proceeded to beat and pummel Plaintiff Krystal Jones with their fists and feet,” at the direction of Trent Richardson. Jones and Hunter claim that, after they were able to drive away, they stopped the car, called police, and sought medical attention. The two woman are suing for their medical treatment, property damages and attorney fees. Plus punitive damages. Per Pro Football Talk, It’s unclear whether the situation was investigated by the authorities for criminal prosecution, and if so whether a decision was made to prosecute, or not. The Browns are aware but have no comment.
