Boston DA will pursue assault and battery charges against Celtics Jared Sullinger


Boston Celtics forward Jared Sullinger will face domestic assault charges stemming from an incident that took place Labor Day weekend, even though his girlfriend isn’t interested in continuing the case.

The 21-year-old Sullinger appeared in Waltham District Court on Monday to face charges of assault and battery, destruction of property and witness intimidation in connection with the Aug. 31 confrontation with his girlfriend. She accused Sullinger of pinning her to a bed and the floor at his Waltham home.

Important to note, even if the alleged victim changes their mind, the DA can override that. It’s not worth it.
