Why do you suppose the Jazz decided to play Withey? Did they just wait a few days for the fuss to die down and hope that no one noticed (at least anyone who would throw a fit about it)? Or were they just desperate enough with Gobert's issues?
Have I missed something? Did the police or DA respond to her allegations?
Withey's attorney told investigators that Summers had become intoxicated that day in July and began to "hit him in the chest and face." In declining to file charges, the district attorney determined that a "reasonable finder of fact could determine [Withey] used a reasonable amount of force in an attempt to get [Summers] off him".
