Washington Huskies wide receiver Damore'ea Stringfellow was charged with two counts of fourth-degree assault and one count of malicious mischief in relation to two incidents two months ago.

Assault charges have been formally filed against Washington Huskies wide receiver Damore'ea Stringfellow.

According to Stephen Cohen of The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, the charges stem from an incident which took place on Feb. 2 involving Stringfellow and his teammate Cyler Miles who were celebrating the Seattle Seahawks' 43-8 victory over the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII: 

"According to court documents, on the night of Feb. 2 Stringfellow and teammate Cyler Miles turned up on GW's Greek Row where a large crowd had gathered to celebrate the Seattle Seahawks' victory over the Denver Broncos. 

"Miles, who is from Denver, was wearing a Broncos beanie, while Stringfellow allegedly shoved a Broncos hat or beanie in the faces of celebrating Seahawks fans

"About 7:40 p.m., according to prosecutors, an unidentified male grabbed the hat out of Stringfellow's hand and threw it either to the ground or in the direction of some couches and mattresses set ablaze in the midst of the celebration.

"Stringfellow then fought with the man, which was caught on camera by a female UW student photographing the night's events, according to court documents. 

"Stringfellow approached the student and tried to wrest the camera from her grip, hitting her head in the process, which may have caused her to faint, court documents say. Stringfellow then threw the lens of the camera, which had come loose in the struggle, toward the fire. Stringfellow and Miles left while the student was carried into a nearby fraternity house, prosecutors contend." 

The Seattle Times' Adam Jude reports Stringfellow also got into an altercation with a Seahawks fan less than an hour later, citing court documents. 

"About 50 minutes later, Stringfellow and Miles got out of a car and asked a man if he was a Seahawks fan. The man 'replied something to the effect of 'Yeah, of course. Are you Broncos fans?' 

"When Stringfellow said yes, (the Seahawks fan) said,'Tough night to be a Broncos fan' and tried to walk past them. Stringfellow blocked his path and got up very close to him. (The Seahawks fan) put his hands up in front of and close to his chest. 

"Stringfellow said he felt threatened and pushed (the Seahawks fan) into a hedge. (The Seahawks fan) tried to get away by running down a nearby path...Stringfellow and Miles chased him, with Stringfellow in the lead. 

"After catching up with the Seahawks fan, Stringfellow 'punched him again in the head and cheek.' An unknown female in the car 'yelled at Stringfellow 'punched him again in the head and cheek.' 

"An unknown female in the car 'yelled at Stringfellow and Miles to come out and get out of there. The two ran back to the car, which drove off.

"The Seahawks fan had a black eye, a cut iip and scrapes on his elbows." 

The Seahawks fan's girlfriend points at Stringfellow as the "primary aggressor," per Jude. Miles took part in the chase, but neither the man nor his female companion "could state with any certainty that Miles actually struck" the Seattle fan. 

KRSC-TV's Paul Silvi tweeted on April 1 that "Miles will not face criminal charges." 

Stringfellow's arraignment is scheduled for April 16. The three charges filed against him are gross misdemeanors in Washington State, "punishable by at least 90 days but less than one year in jail and fines up to $5,000," notes The Associated Press (via ESPN). 

Both Stringfellow and Miles, a quarterback who had been in the running for the starting job, were suspended indefinitely by new Huskies head football coach Chris Petersen, per Cohen. 

Stringfellow is a sophomore wide receiver who registered 259 yards and a touchdown on 20 receptions last season, according to The Seattle Post-Ingelligencer update
