Some good news for Justin Hunter today in Virginia Beach as he has been found not guilty on assault and battery charges stemming from an incident in Virginia Beach over the 4th of July holiday.

Here is Hunter walking out of the courtroom:

It is amazing how the severity of this event changed since it was first reported.  The initial report had the charges as a felony and Hunter was being held without bond.  They were then dropped down to a misdemeanor and today he was found not guilty.

Now if we can just get Hunter to put it all together on the football field and become the player they thought he would be when they traded up in the draft to get him.
