It’s been a few weeks since we have heard anything about the ongoing investigation into an incident which took place in the middle of July at the Cameo nightclub in Miami Beach that may have included Pittsburgh Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey and his twin brother Mike Pouncey assaulting one or more individuals.
According to a Wednesday report by Andy Slater of 940 AM WINZ Radio, Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office spokesperson Ed Griffith recently gave an update.
“The ongoing investigation of the Cameo Nightclub incident involving both the Pouncey brothers is ongoing,” Griffith said Tuesday afternoon. “At present, we are still interviewing the witnesses. It would be a less than thorough investigation if all the witnesses were not brought in.”
Roughly three weeks ago, Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald reported that according to the attorney of the alleged victims, authorities were on the verge of charging Maurkice Pouncey for the role that he played in the South Beach nightclub incident. Those misdemeanor battery charges that were believed to be imminent have yet to be filed against the Steelers center.
This sure is a lot of investigating that is going into a misdemeanor battery. How many witnesses are we talking about and why is it taking so long to interview all of them?
“We will not come to any conclusion until all the witnesses are interviewed and each of their statements are reviewed and analyzed,” Griffith said.
The Steelers regular season starts a week from Sunday, so should Maurkice Pouncey still wind up being charged, it likely won’t be until the bye week in Week 12 until he can get back to Miami to answer the charges in person.
