Colts DE McCain reportedly charged with battery

Indianapolis Colts defensive end Chris McCain was charged with two
counts of misdemeanor battery on Tuesday, according to multiple
reports.

McCain allegedly spit and grabbed the female victim’s neck during
an incident on Jan. 7 in Los Angeles, according to the reports.

“We are aware of this evening’s reports regarding Chris McCain and
are gathering all available information,” the Colts said in a
statement on Tuesday night. ‘We take these matters very seriously
and will provide updates as appropriate.”

The 26-year-old McCain posted a couple tweets in his own defense,
saying, “Time out. Don’t not believe that mess,” and, “I’m just
confused cause idk what is going on.”

McCain’s arraignment hearing is scheduled for July 13. If
convicted, he could spend 6 months in jail.

The Colts signed the four-year pro in May. Last season with the Los
Angeles Chargers, McCain had five sacks, 20 tackles and forced two
fumbles in 15 games in a reserve role.
