Assault charge dropped against former PSU lineman Kevin Givens, now with 49ers

Kevin Givens recovers a fumble against the Rams.

A second-degree assault charge against former Penn State defensive lineman Kevin Givens has been dropped, according to a report today out of San Francisco, where Givens is a member of the 49ers.

On Feb. 22, Givens had a confrontation with a man at a hotel in Baltimore that led to a second-degree assault charge being filed. This is from the initial ESPN news story of the incident, which NSN cited in our March 26 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.
