DOVER, Del. (AP) — A University of Delaware football player is charged with assaulting a 77-year-old driver who struck his mother.

Lt. Andrew Rubin with Newark police tells news outlets the man’s car struck Sakeena Pickett as she crossed a street outside of a crosswalk Saturday. Police say the driver got out to check on Pickett, and her son, Khory D. Spruill, punched him in the head and dented the car.

Pickett was hospitalized with serious injuries. Rubin says the man declined medical attention for facial injuries, and won’t be charged.

Spruill is charged with second-degree assault and criminal mischief. It’s unclear whether he has a lawyer.

Spruill is a sophomore running back from Maryland who had played earlier that day in the Blue Hens’ win over Towson.

    • She was hit while walking crossing the street outside of a crosswalk. He got out to make sure she was ok. I’m pretty sure it was an accident. People don’t usually get charged for accidents unless they did something wrong, like being drunk or inattentive. Her son acted like an animal. He deserved to charged.
