A judge will begin hearing evidence Tuesday to decide whether former Arizona State University football star and AP NFL defensive rookie of the year Terrell Suggs should stand trial on assault charges.
A criminal complaint filed in Maricopa County Superior Court alleges that Suggs and Robert Castro-Sanchez, 21, of Mesa injured Anthony Henry, age unknown, with a piece of rebar in a March 29 brawl.
Suggs, 21, is also charged with a less severe count of aggravated assault. In that count, the complaint alleges he "caused physical injury to Jeryme C. Cook by any means of force, which caused a temporary but substantial disfigurement."
Suggs’ 17-year-old cousin, Donald Suggs of Phoenix, and Keith Gerron Wilson, 20, of Chandler also face aggravated assault charges.
The brawl took place in the Phoenix Municipal Stadium parking lot. In April, Terrell Suggs’ agent, Gary Wichard, said his client was attacked when he tried to act as peacemaker in a dispute involving his cousin.
