Report: Maurkice Pouncey will be charged with battery down in Miami

According to Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald, Steelers offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey is facing misdemeanor battery charges down in Miami for his alleged role in a brawl that went down in South Beach, while his brother Mike is not expected to be charged.

Yes — and that charge could come as soon as Friday, according to the attorney for the victims, who says he was briefed in recent days by Miami Beach police about their intentions.

Personal injury attorney Marwan Porter said police have indicated that Pouncey, a center for the Pittsburgh Steelers, will be charged with misdemeanor battery.

Dolphins lineman Mike Pouncey, who was with his twin brother at Cameo nightclub the night of July 12, will apparently not be charged in the incident.

The Pouncey’s attorney Jeff Ostrow says he doesn’t believe his clients will be charged.

“Until such time, no charges can be formally filed against either of my clients,” Ostrow continued. “From what we’ve discovered, the evidence supporting the battery claims is flimsy, at best.”
