Ole Miss Rebels offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil and his stepfather have agreed to drop their respective domestic violence charges against one another. According to Riley Blevins of The Clarion-Ledger, the charges should be officially dropped on Monday.
The story of Tunsil and his dispute with his stepfather, Lindsey Miller, has been a notable one. Back in June, Tunsil was charged with domestic violence against Miller and claimed that he had punched Miller while defending his mother from him. Miller then claimed that the initial disagreement was over Tunsil’s alleged meeting with NFL agents, which led to the NCAA to launch its own investigation into Tunsil’s activities, which is still ongoing.
But now it appears that both men have settled their differences and will move on, though Tunsil still remains suspended from the team. Despite that, he has the support of head coach Hugh Freeze and should be back on the field sooner rather than later if the NCAA does not find him to have violated any rules.
This story could still have some life in it despite the charges being dropped, and Campus Sports will update it if any new information becomes available.
