Damore’ea Stringfellow, serving an indefinite suspension, will be charged with two counts of fourth-degree assault and one count of malicious mischief in connection with a post-Super Bowl incident in the University District, the King County prosecutor’s office announced Thursday. The charges against the University of Washington wide receiver are all misdemeanors.
Quarterback Cyler Miles, also suspended indefinitely by head coach Chris Petersen, will not be charged, apparently due to a lack of evidence. His return to the Huskies remains uncertain.
According to charging papers, Stringfellow and Miles first showed up at a Seahawks rally at 19th Ave. NE and NE 47th Street. Stringfellow wore a Broncos beanie and Miles reportedly shoved a beanie or Broncos hat into the faces of celebrating fans.
Stringfellow and an unidentified fan began fighting, and a woman, identified as an assault victim, began snapping photos. Realizing that he was being photographed, Stringfellow allegedly hit the woman in the head and damaged the woman’s camera, leading to a charge of malicious mischief.
Stringfellow and Miles became involved in a second incident later in the evening in which Stringfellow, according to court documents, struck a man in his lower jaw.
Neither Stringfellow nor Miles have practiced with the Huskies this spring following Petersen’s suspension. Miles was considered the favorite to replace departing senior Keith Price at quarterback.
