Fox Sports: Nkemdiche Brothers Sued

Posted: Updated:
WJTV - The off the field problems keep piling up for the Ole Miss football team. In a report released by Fox Sports Tuesday afternoon, a lawsuit has been filed against Rebels Denzel and Robert Nkemdiche.

According to the report, a lawsuit was filed on Valentine's Day in Lafayette County for an incident that occurred in February of last year.

The suit is seeking $2 million in damages and names the Nkemdiche brothers along with five other unidentified Ole Miss players.

Denzel, who will be a junior linebacker this upcoming season, is accused of punching the plaintiff in the back of the head and knocking him unconscious.

Robert, who will be a sophomore defensive lineman in the fall and was on a recruiting visit at the time of the incident, is alleged to have beating the unconscious plaintiff along with the other five unidentified Ole Miss players.

In a statement to WJTV, the Ole Miss athletic department writes:

"When this alleged incident occurred, the proper authorities investigated the matter and could find no evidence of wrong-doing related to Denzel and Robert Nkemdiche or any other members of our football program. This is a personal matter for them and we will support Denzel and Robert while they defend themselves in this civil case.”
