Two Riders Facing Assault Charges
The Saskatchewan Roughriders put out a brief news release this morning which states two of their players were involved in an incident that has led to criminal charges.
Police say Defensive Back Dwight Anderson and Receiver Taj Smith are both facing a count of aggravated assault from an incident outside a Dewdney avenue bar on August 18th.
Police responded to the bar where a group of people were involved in a fight and found a 20 year old man who was seriously injured and was taken to hospital.
Smith and Anderson were arrested yesterday and will make their first court appearance this morning.
The Riders say they will have no comments until the investigation is resolved.
