The domestic violence charge which resulted from a August 31 Wyndham Hamilton Park Hotel incident in Florham Park, N.J. against Jets WR Quincy Enunwa has been dismissed.
A league spokesperson said the NFL would review the court documents but said he did not anticipate Enunwa facing any disciplinary action as a result.
Quincy Enunwa’s attorney, Tony Fusco, was informed at Florham Park Municipal Court in New Jersey Wednesday, that the complainant had communicated through her attorney that the charges be dropped.
Without a complainant it’s difficult to prosecute, prompting the dismissal.
Enunwa stipulated to no communication with the complainant for a period 90 days.
Enunwa did not appear and was not required to be at the court hearing. Fusco said.
“I’m thrilled, I’m glad. I’d love for him to go on with his career and put this behind them.” Attorney Fusco said.
Enunwa had originally made the 53 man roster before being moved to the practice squad, where he now resides.
The Jets and Quincy Enunwa himself have not yet made a statement.
Long Island’s NEWSDAY article interviewing Jets owner Woody Johnson:
Q- Would the Jets keep him if convicted?
“That depends,” Johnson said. “That’s something we’re looking at.”
“I don’t know yet, We’re looking at that. The league is looking at it and we’re looking at it, too. I think that’s one of the things that [NFL commissioner] Roger [Goodell] talked about in his press conference and he’s talked about it on multiple occasions.”
Johnson refused to give his philosophy on domestic violence:
“Yeah, I can’t really comment on that, There’s no way to comment on something like that because there’s all kinds of stakeholders and there’s all kinds of levels . . . This is a societal question. The NFL is a player, but not the most dominant player. We’re trying to do our job, and it’s something we have to deal with and we will deal with it. And we’ll hopefully deal with this as intelligently and as sensitively as we possibly can.”
