The immediate future of two officers accused of assaulting a NFL player’s father could be made as soon as Friday, Houston Police Chief Harold Hurtt said Thursday.
Marvin Driver Jr., father of Greenbay Packers widereceiver Donal Driver, says the two officers took him behind a local gas station, beat him and made him swallow something.
Hurtt said the officers are still on active duty but a decision regarding whether they will be placed on other duties during the investigation is pending.
“Number one, we just got the allegations, we have not completed our preliminary investigation and I have not been briefed on the interview with Mr. Driver or the witnesses,” said Hurtt.
NFL star Donald Driver had a brief visit to Hosuton to be with his father at Memorial Hermann Hospital. He has already returned to Green Bay.
His uncle tells Fox 26 news Driver will likely refrain from commenting on the case until all the facts come to light.
