Ole Miss offensive line star Laremy Tunsil has been arrested on domestic violence charges.
Tunsil was arrested for allegedly punching his stepfather after he pushed his mother. Apparently Tunsil turned himself into police after he threw the punch, Coach Hugh Freeze told the press.
Freeze seems to be taking Tunsil’s side on the affair. “Laremy realizes he could have handled it differently,” the Ole Miss coach said. “I am proud of him for standing up for his mother and protecting his family.”
Freeze added that charges against the stepfather, Lindsey Miller, has been filed by Tunsil and his mother, Desiree Tunsil. It is not known as to whether Miller has filed charges against Tunsil.
Miller has accused Tunsil of driving around Oxford with football agents. He also said that he put out his hand to shake Tunsil’s hand, and was pushed against a wall.
The 6-5, 305lb player is thought to be a certain first-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft – if he chooses to leave after his junior year. His 2014 season was curtailed by injury in The Peach Bowl game against TCU.
