Delaware Blue Hens running back Khory Spruill is facing one count each of second-degree assault and criminal mischief, according to the Delaware News Journal. He allegedly punched a 77-year-old man in the head and face.
The alleged incident happened following the man hitting his mother, 42-year-old Sakeena Pickett. It is alleged that the man hit Pickett with his car while she was outside of a crosswalk.
Pickett was allegedly crossing South College Ave., outside of a crosswalk at 7:50 pm, when the 77-year-old struck her with his car, Newark (DE) Police Lt. Andrew Rubin said.
The authorities said that the driver then got out of his vehicle to check on the woman. That’s when her son, Khory D. Spruill, allegedly punched the man in his head and face.
He also allegedly struck and dented his car.
Witnesses helped the driver get back in his car, according to the police. He then drove off. Rubin said the man sustained facial injuries from the assault but declined medical attention.
No charges has been brought against the driver at this time. Pickett; however, is still hospitalized with unspecified serious injuries.
The school released a statement saying “the safety and welfare of all members of the Blue Hens family is of the utmost priority.” The school is also cooperating with the authorities.
The matter has been referred to the school’s Student Conduct Office.
He has one carry for 37 yards and a touchdown this season.
