Rams tight end Tyler Higbee pleads guilty to assault in Kentucky

Los Angeles Rams tight end Tyler Higbee is in the Rams plans this year, but he could face a suspension from the NFL.  Higbee avoided jail time after pleading guilty to assault for a fight outside a bar in Kentucky last year.

The Daily News reports the former Western Kentucky University standout pleaded guilty on Friday to assault under extreme emotional disturbance. Warren Circuit Judge Steve Wilson ordered Higbee to pay the victim an undisclosed amount and perform 250 hours of community service. Higbee also can’t own or possess a gun.

Higbee told police he and his girlfriend had been to a bar in April 2016 when he got into an argument with Nawaf Alsaleh.

Higbee and his girlfriend left the bar and went to a nearby parking lot to buy from a food truck. Police say Alsaleh approached Higbee again, and Higbee punched him.

The NFL may get involved, but if they do Higbee likely will not get in too much trouble.
