Assault charge against Devonte Fields to be dropped

Former TCU Horned Frogs defensive star Devonte Fields has reportedly avoided a potentially serious assault charge which could pave the way for his career with the Louisville Cardinals to resume.

Last year, Fields was accused of punching his ex-girlfriend, pointing a gun at her and threatening her.

That led to an assault charge for the defensive end and ultimately his dismissal from TCU. However, over the weekend, Fields dodged the trouble by learning that his charges can be dropped by simply completing an anger management course.

Fields is a former Big 12 Freshman of the Year and Big 12 Preseason Defensive Player of the Year, so Louisville will be getting an incredibly talented player.

They just have to hope that he is able to stay out of trouble off the field.
