Free agent running back Antonio Andrews, who spent the past three seasons with the Tennessee Titans, appeared in Davidson County General Sessions on Thursday on a felony aggravated assault charge, stemming from an alleged incident in March outside a Nashville eatery.
Andrews, 24, is facing a charge, according to the affidavit, that he assaulted David McDill on Demonbreun St. on March 25 after McDill made a racial slur while inside the Little Chicago Pizza restaurant, located at 1542 Demonbreun St.
Per the Davidson County Court website, Andrews is currently standing trial in the matter and is scheduled back in court Friday as well.
According to the report, Andrews overheard McDill make a racial comment to an employee of the restaurant while both were standing in line waiting to order.
After Andrews ordered and received his pizza and went outside, he noticed McDill outside as well and approached him, asking him about the racial slur.
The two men then exchanged words, and Andrews then allegedly punched McDill in the face.
Multiple people then separated the two men. After a short time passed, the report indicates that Andrews punched McDill in the face again. Employees of the restaurant then brought Andrews back inside to separate the two men.
McDill was taken to the hospital and was treated for a broken jaw.
Andrews was charged with aggravated assault, and arrested on March 28 with a $20,000 bond.
