Jalen Mills seems to have made the most of his do-over since charges of a 2014 simple assault against a woman were dropped, so it would only be fair to give him the benefit of the doubt after he gave the following unfortunate explanation for why he thought he was originally charged: "The girl - basically it was her word vs. mine. Domestic violence is very serious around the [United States], so women, nine times out of 10, they usually get the upper hand until you go to court." But Mills, who was drafted by the Eagles in the seventh round, left out a few pertinent details in his answer. It wasn't just his word vs. the alleged victim's. Another witness picked him out of a lineup, according to the original police warrant. And the case never went to court because he agreed to a pretrial diversion program to have the charges expunged.
