Charges dismissed against Ole Miss OL Laremy Tunsil


A legal case involving Ole Miss offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil and his stepfather has been dismissed.

Both men had filed misdemeanor domestic violence charges against each other following an alleged fight in June. 

At the time of the incident, Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said Tunsil was defending his mother from his stepfather.    

The school has also acknowledged it is looking into allegations from the stepfather that Tunsil had improper contact with football agents. 

Tunsil, a 6-foot-5, 315-pound junior, is considered a top NFL prospect for next year's draft.

Freeze said during Southeastern Conference media days that his starting left tackle would be eligible if the season started that day.

Ole Miss reports for preseason camp on Wednesday.
