Draymond Green's civil suit accuser says, 'I still feel his hand on my jaw'
The Golden State forward is accused of assault, battery and making misleading statements
Now, Green is facing a civil suit regarding the case.
Jermaine Edmondson, the former MSU player, and Bianca Williams brought claims of physical assault, bullying and misleading statements against the Warriors star stemming from two incidents in Michigan last summer, according to lawyer Lisa Bloom, who is representing the accusers. The first sentence of their lawsuit claims that "Draymond Green is a bully."
Edmondson made a statement, saying, "I still feel his hand on my jaw."
Katherine Grubaugh, a representative for Green, issued the following statement on his behalf:
"This lawsuit relates to an incident that occurred in East Lansing, Michigan over a year ago, for which Draymond paid a noise violation fine. Draymond looks forward to defending himself and clearing up the misinformation put forth today."
Green said he believes the issue "will be resolved soon."
