Ole Miss T Laremy Tunsil's stepfather filed a lawsuit against him Tuesday alleging Tunsil attacked him and then defamed him.
This action stems from an incident last June in which Tunsil allegedly attacked his stepfather, Lindsey Miller. Shortly thereafter, Miller and Tunsil levied domestic violence charges against one other. Those criminal charges were mutually dropped, but Miller is now seeking compensatory and punitive damages because of "past, present, and future bodily injury, pain & suffering, severe emotional distress, medical costs, damage to reputation, and/or other types of damages that he has incurred (and will likely continue to incur)." Miller's story regarding the June incident is that he and Tunsil’s mother, Desiree Polingo, had a "heated conversation" about Tunsil’s relationship with agents, after which Tunsil attacked him. Tunsil's story is he was defending his mom. "I don't know anything about it," Tunsil said Wednesday when asked about the lawsuit. He's in Chicago for the NFL Draft, which begins Thursday night.
