Assault charges filed against Jared Sullinger

  • Although the accuser wants to drop the case against Boston Celtics forward Jared Sullinger, prosecutors said they intend on pursuing the domestic assault. 

    The 21-year old has been accused of assault and battery and destruction of property. He is also known to have intimidated the witness associated with the confrontation with his girlfriend on Aug. 31. 

    She mentioned that Sullinger pinned her to a bed and the floor at his home in Waltham. His lawyer said his girlfriend is not afraid of Sullinger and doesn't want to continue the case, which he referred to as being "embarrassing". 

    However, a spokeswoman mentioned that prosecutors believe they have the evidence needed to "support the charges". 

    Sullinger remains free on a $5,000 bail and has pleaded not guilty.
