Back in December, it was reported that Washington Commanders safety Deshazor Everett was involved in a single-car crash that took the life of 29-year-old Olivia S. Peters, who was in the passenger seat of the vehicle.
After well over a month of investigations, Loudoun County authorities have decided to charge Everett with involuntary manslaughter.
According to reports, Everett turned himself in to the Loudoun County Magistrate’s Office, where he was served a warrant for involuntary manslaughter and released on bond.
Everett’s legal team released a statement saying they intend to “investigate this matter as we intend on vigorously defending Mr. Everett against these allegations. They’ve also asked that the public reserve judgement until “all facts are fully investigated and litigated in the proper forum.”
On the evening of December 23 at approximately 9:15 p.m., Peters was traveling with Everett in his 2010 Nissan GT-R in Loudoun County, Virginia, when his vehicle veered off the road and hit several trees before rolling over.
Deshazor suffered serious, non-life threatening injuries, while Olivia was rushed to StoneSprings Hospital, where she eventually succumbed to her injuries.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
