Brothers Robert and Denzel Nkemdiche are being sued for $2 million for battery, negligence, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Denzel was suspended indefinitely after getting arrested this past weekend was named in a civil compliant from an incident back in February 2013.
According to Clay Travis, the suit alleges that Denzel punched a man who was at the Kappa Alpha fraternity house in the back of the head and knocked him out. Robert, who was still in high school at the time, and five other football players began kicking and stomping the man. The man began convulsing and was taken to the emergency room and treated for severe head injuries.
Ole Miss is aware of the situation and released this statement.
“When this alleged incident occurred, the proper authorities investigated the matter and could find no evidence of wrong-doing related to Denzel and Robert Nkemdiche or any other members of our football program. This is a personal matter for them and we will support Denzel and Robert while they defend themselves in this civil case.”
Looks like the Nkemdiche brothers have a big problem they have to deal with. For Denzel, it’s going to be very hard for him to get reinstated after this civil compliant.
