Mickey Joseph was arrested after being allegedly involved in an argument with an adult woman that took a violent turn, and the details are pretty disturbing.
The alleged victim told authorities that the Nebraska coach “pushed me on the couch and strangled me.” The woman said she was able to temporarily escape to another room, before the coach once again “grabbed her hair from behind and pulled her backward, causing her to fall to the ground.”
Joseph then reportedly punched the woman in the face. Police noticed swelling around the eye.
Joseph has been charged with a felony, assault by strangulation or suffocation. If ultimately convicted, he faces up to 3 years in prison.
Nebraska placed Coach Joseph on administrative leave.
