LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) Louisville football player Kemari Averett was charged Tuesday with putting a gun to his girlfriend's head and threatening to kill her. The tight end was suspended from the team.
The 20-year-old sophomore remains in Louisville Metro jail on $10,000 bond after pleading not guilty and faces an Oct. 26 hearing. University police charged him with first-degree wanton endangerment and fourth-degree assault.
"Mr. Averett disagrees with the allegations as stated," the player's lawyer, J.P. Ward, said Tuesday night. "We'll look at those allegations going forward and look forward to our day in court."
