Bridges found guilty; will appeal

CHARLOTTE -- Carolina Panthers guard Jeremy Bridges was found guilty Tuesday on one count of assault by pointing a gun, although his lawyer immediately filed an appeal.
"This is one judge's decision, based on what he heard," Bridges said upon leaving the courtroom. "I know I'm not guilty in this whole situation. That's why we're going to appeal and let 12 people decide."
Bridges was arrested following an altercation outside a South Charlotte night club on July 26 (the day before players reported to training camp) and was later suspended two games by the team.
Tuesday, District Court judge Tom Moore sentenced Bridges to a 60-day suspended sentence, one year of unsupervised probation, ordered him to perform 60 hours of community service, pay a $500 fine and court costs and surrender the handgun.
((((Bridges' attorney, George Laughrun, immediately filed an appeal, with a jury trial expected in February or March.))))))))
There was over an hour of testimony at the Mecklenburg County Courthouse, with two distinctly different versions of the story coming to light.
The accuser, Chevella Coleman, said Bridges pointed the gun at her and threatened her following an incident in the parking lot of Club Onyx. She worked there as an entertainer and had a relationship of some sort with a man referred to in court as Bridges' brother.
Bridges admitted he didn't approve of his friend Darrell Bennett (they aren't related, rather college friends from Southern Mississippi) hanging out with Coleman, which sparked the incident.
Bridges admitted he went back to his limousine for a gun as the argument between Coleman and Bennett escalated "because I was in fear for my brother's life."
Bennett and Taye Biddle, the former Panthers wide receiver now on Tampa Bay's practice squad, testified that Bridges never pointed the gun, but held it behind his back as he tried to get Bennett back into their hired car.
"Her people, everything was backward, chopped up and twisted," Bridges said of the prosecution testimony. "There was no visual evidence."
Neither Coleman nor any of her supporters wanted to talk to reporters after the verdict, with a woman covering Coleman's face as they hustled down the sidewalk.
Coleman's witnesses were an eclectic group, including her uncle Michael Fowler, who took the stand wearing a sleeveless black evening dress with a gold belt and high-heeled shoes, with long, flowing hair and a "Mike Mike" tattoo visible on his muscular right bicep.
"Is it Mister Fowler, or Miss Fowler?" Laughrun asked as Fowler took the stand, before Fowler huffed, "Mister."
Also testifying was a woman who identified herself as Coleman's "ex-girlfriend, just a friend now," who is four months pregnant.
The team decided to suspend Bridges without pay for two games, but no further punishment is expected.
"As you're aware, following this incident, the club suspended Jeremy for two games for conduct detrimental," Panthers general manager Marty Hurney said in a statement. "At the league level, the personal conduct policy also applies, and we have been informed that the NFL will review this matter."

Robin, did you change your name again?!?! Brock could have also filed an appeal. Yeah, yeah, yeah,
your once again going to claim, that you were "legally dumb" and didn't know the system. I know that you had heard of an appeal in your lifetime,and what you didn't know you should have asked questions about, especially if your sons freedom was on the line.

I'll be a dumb bunny, if you will agree that your an a$$hole!!
Please make up your mind, because sometimes you refer to me being a male, other times you refer to me as a female. Once again that proves you don't know everything.
I like how you jump in to protect Robin, the "legal superhero". I told you that you two would make a good team. Batman and Robin.

I hope that in 2009 that you find some peace and your able to move on. Your hatred for George Laughrun will be your downfall. You have wasted so much negative energy towards this man. It would be different if this was having an effect on him, but it doesn't. He could careless about what you think of him. For every one person that dislikes him there is probably 4 people that sing his praise.
This is not going to change your families situation.

George is one of the most reputable and well-regarded attorney's in Charlotte, I would trust him with any case that I had pending. He does his homework and takes care of his clients regardless of their case and station in life. He is a stand-up guy and a gentleman. He knows points of law better than any attorney I've ever contacted. Anyone that knows him personally, knows that they will be taken care of. Any potential client would be fortunate to have his representation. If George takes your case, you are well represented, period...
