Houston Texans’ Stefon Diggs’ Brother Arrested for Violent Crime in Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Stefon Diggs, a prominent player for the Houston Texans, found himself unexpectedly thrust back into the spotlight during what was supposed to be a quiet break. His brother, Darez Diggs, recently made headlines after being arrested for his involvement in a violent crime in Los Angeles.

Darez Diggs was sentenced to two years of probation and 20 hours of community labor for his role in a brutal assault on an unsuspecting victim in an elevator. This incident occurred not long after he had reached a plea deal for a felony charge of grand theft. Surveillance footage captured the attack, showing Darez Diggs and two other individuals, with Diggs preventing the elevator doors from closing, allowing the assault to take place.

The victim, identified as Christopher Griffith, was assaulted, had his jewelry taken, and subsequently filed a lawsuit against Diggs. The lawsuit alleges that the incident caused him pain, suffering, and distress, and seeks $100,000 in compensation for the stolen jewelry. As the legal proceedings unfold, Stefon Diggs has refrained from commenting on the matter.

Despite the ongoing legal battle, Stefon Diggs has continued his work at a football camp at the University of Maryland. The repercussions for grand theft in the United States can be severe, typically resulting in imprisonment, fines, restitution to the victim, probation, and community service. The specific penalties imposed can vary based on the value of the stolen property and the laws of the jurisdiction.
