Cody Latimer appeared in court Monday as he is currently facing charges of assault in the second degree, menacing, illegal discharge of a firearm, prohibited use of weapons and reckless endangerment.
According to Mike Klis and Dacia Johnson of 9NEWS Denver, the Washington Redskins wide receiver allegedly threatened his friend with a gun and discharged the weapon after an argument from a poker game early Saturday morning.
“At the hearing, Latimer’s attorney, Harvey Steinberg, told the court that he has been contacted by law enforcement concerning an investigation of a sexual assault of Latimer’s 4-year-old son that was allegedly perpetrated by one of the individuals at that poker game,” according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter and John Keim.
Adam Schefter added “The allegations concerning the shooting incident occurred at about the same time and location of the alleged sexual assault.”
The police report states that English asked for everyone to leave his apartment after Latimer and another person got into an argument during a poker game. Latimer allegedly came back to the apartment with a gun in hand and blamed English for the confrontation he had with the other person. English said the wide receiver threatened to “kill everybody” and eventually fired two shots near English.
That’s when Latimer allegedly struck English on the head with the gun when English held him against a wall.
