Former Penn State defensive lineman Kevin Givens, who now plays for the San Francisco 49ers, is facing an assault charge from a confrontation with a man at a Baltimore hotel on Feb. 22.

Givens, a native of Altoona, 45 miles from Penn State, faces a charge of misdemeanor second-degree assault, according to ESPN. If convicted, that outlet reported, he could face up to 10 years in prison and/or a $2,500 fine.

These are some details of the incident in question, involving Givens and an alleged victim named Hayden Bosley. From the ESPN story:

The charge, which is for misdemeanor second-degree assault, stems from an incident that took place on Feb. 22 in which the victim, Hayden Bosley, said he suffered “a dislocated shoulder, a black right eye, bruises above his left ear and minor skin scrapes,” in the court documents, copies of which were obtained by ESPN.
