Lindsey Miller, the stepfather of Laremy Tunsil, claims that he and the Ole Miss offensive tackle’s mother were arguing about Tunsil “riding around with football agents” on the night of the incident that resulted in Tunsil’s arrest last week on domestic violence charges, according to The Clarion-Ledger.
According to a police report obtained by the newspaper on Tuesday morning, Miller was “very excited” when Lafayette County Sheriff’s deputies arrived on the scene Thursday evening, and told them “Tunsil and the agents” left in a yellow convertible.
According to voluntary statements made by the 53-year-old Miller, Desiree Tunsil left the house during the argument when Laremy Tunsil walked in. Miller claims that he offered his hand to Tunsil, who then allegedly shoved him against a wall and began to hit him.
The report says that four other men who were present in the home at the time of the incident pulled Tunsil off of Miller.
Miller’s son, Derek, who was present at the time of the incident, told deputies that he recalled Desiree Tunsil and Lindsey Miller “cussing” at each other when Laremy Tunsil entered the house and pushed his father against a wall, then got on top of him and began to hit him.
Derek Miller is one of Lindsey Miller’s two sons named in a restraining order against Tunsil which was granted by a Lafayette County judge this past Friday.
Lindsey Miller and Laremy Tunsil have each pressed charges against the other.
Tunsil, a 6-foot-5, 305 lb junior, is one of the top offensive linemen in the country, with ESPN’s NFL draft guru Mel Kiper, Jr. going so far as to rank Tunsil number 2 overall on his “Big Board” for 2016.
