Tennessee Titans’ running back Hassan Haskins is now facing charges for aggravated assault.
Per ESPN’s Turron Davenport, Haskins was formally booked into Davidson County on Thursday and posted a $10,000 bound. Haskins has been charged with aggravated assault on his girlfriend, Makiah Green, by strangulation.
The alleged incident took place on June 22.
Per Davenport, the police report alleges that Haskins strangled Green after a disagreement. (WARNING, paragraph below contains allegations of domestic violence that some may find disturbing).
“According to the police report, Haskins allegedly strangled his girlfriend, Makiah Green, on June 22 during a disagreement that stemmed from when he saw that she “liked” another man’s Instagram photo. The two got into an argument, resulting in Green allegedly throwing Haskins’ shoes on the floor. Haskins allegedly told her to stop, and when Green didn’t, he pushed her to the ground, then tossed her on a bed, where he used both hands to strangle her. The fight continued with the two allegedly slapping each other.
A second alleged incident occurred Thursday when the two were at dinner. Haskins allegedly left Green at the restaurant, and she had to take an Uber back to their house. Green saw Haskins in the house when she returned. She allegedly threw a glass at him and took refuge in their bedroom. Haskins allegedly kicked the door down, an argument ensued and Green allegedly ripped a $5,000 chain off his neck.”
According to Davenport, Green was charged with aggravated assault as well as felony vandalism, and she was given a $7,500 bail. As for Haskins, his next scheduled court appearance will be on July 10.
The former Michigan running back was drafted in the fourth round (131st overall) by the Titans last year. With two-time rushing champion and superstar Derrick Henry staying healthy throughout the year, Haskins saw limited playing time as a rookie.
In 15 game appearances, Haskins saw 25 total carries for 93 rushing yards and 11 receptions for 57 yards. Henry led the Titans with 1,538 yards and 13 touchdowns, while understudy Dontrell Hillard tallied 145 rushing yards. Despite only appearing in eight games, second-stringer and quarterback Malik Willis was third on rushing for the Titans with 123 yards and one rushing touchdown.
Tulane product Tyjae Spears was drafted in the third round (81st overall) by the Titans, so he’ll likely be the team’s RB2 behind Henry.
