Jets QB Geno Smith will not press charges on IK Enemkpali

New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith has a broken jaw after getting punched in the face by defensive end IK Enemkpali. Now Enemkpali, is a free agent after getting cut by the Buffalo Bills, but the former Jet was facing criminal charges.  Today, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reported that Geno Smith will not press charges on the former Louisiana Tech defensive end. 

According to Pro Football Talk, no charges will be pressed:

Smith said, via Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, that he will not press charges against Enemkpali for the locker room incident, which reportedly stemmed from a $600 debt that Smith owed to Enemkpali after cancelling a scheduled appearance at Enemkpali’s football camp this year. Smith wouldn’t answer questions about whether he has since paid Enemkpali or why he didn’t pay in the first place, however.

Smith did address fans who were taken aback by an incident like that taking place in the team’s locker room — “Imagine how I felt,” Smith said — and, without going into details, whether he learned anything from the experience.

“There’s obviously a lesson learned in every situation … Good or bad,” Smith said.
