CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) - Cleveland Browns running back Reuben Droughns was to spend Wednesday night in jail after turning himself in to face charges stemming for a domestic violence incident, authorities said.
The 27-year-old Droughns was being held without bond until a court hearing Thursday morning, Arapahoe County sheriff Patrol Capt. Mark Fisher said.
Fisher said Droughns faces charges of third-degree assault and harassment for an incident that happened May 12, shortly after a jury in Medina, Ohio, acquitted him of drunken driving.

LITTLETON, Colo. (AP) - Cleveland Browns running back Reuben Droughns threw his wife out the door of their home after she said she wanted a divorce, according to a sheriff's report.
Droughns was released on $2,500 bail Thursday on one count of assault and two counts of harassment. He surrendered to police the day before and spent the night in jail.
The arrest report said Kellie Droughns' right arm was hurt in the May 12 incident at their suburban Denver home. The report said she called her mother in Texas, who then called the sheriff's department.
Droughns' attorney, Harvey Steinberg, did not immediately return a call Friday.
Kellie Droughns had no listed phone number. Her name is redacted in the report but she has been publicly identified as Droughns' wife.
Droughns faces six to 18 months in jail if convicted of assault and up to six months in jail if convicted of harassment. Bail conditions allow him to leave the state before his next court appearance on July 6, district attorney's spokeswoman Kathleen Walsh said.

It all depends how he "threw her". If he picked her up Kong style and tossed her on the lawn, I have a problem with that. If he grabbed her and gave her a nudge then locked the door, I got no problem with that. If she wants out of his life so bad, he only helped her with that.

yeah the thing with assault charges is that you can get them for just touching another person in some States.
Since her arm was hurt, I am guessing he grabbed her arm and lead her out the door. Which is bad, but not as bad as I thought it was when I heard "surrendered to police" "assault charge"
Like he beat the crap out of her and then went out on the lam and the sheriff had to bring him in like Rambo.
