Browns DT Kiante Tripp's Representatives 'Confident All Charges Will Be Dropped'
Representatives for Cleveland Browns backup defensive tackle Kiante Tripp have issued a statement expressing confidence that a felony burglary charge and possession of a firearm during commission of a felony charge filed against the NFL player will ultimately be dropped. Tripp is free on bail. "While an incident did occur that Mr. Tripp was present at the scene of an alleged crime, Mr. Tripp's involvement was in a substantially diminished degree from that which was reported," Tripp's representatives said in a statement to Scout. "Though charged with burglary and possession of a weapon, Mr. Tripp never entered the residence of the alleged victim and the allegations of a weapon being involved are totally unsubstantiated speculation. "According to the reporting officer narrative, there was no forced entry by any member of the party, Mr. Tripp was found outside, complied with all of the officers' request, and despite the authorities searching all alleged assailants and surrounding area, there was no weapon of any kind recovered." The statement added: "Kiante is not a bad person, has never been in any trouble, and allowed himself to be in a place where he should not have been. He realizes the severity of his mistake, and apologizes sincerely for any negative light cast upon the Browns organization and is confident that all charges will be dropped."
