Brown grad, NFL player pleads no contest to FishCo assault

David T. Howard ‘09.5 has pled no contest to the charge that he assaulted a customer while working as a bouncer at FishCo, the Projo has reported. Howard, who has since been drafted to play for the Tennessee Titans, had originally appealed his conviction, but changed his plea to no contest after plea bargaining.

Howard allegedly punched and kicked a Southborough, Mass. man who complained about having to pay for drinks, though he had paid a fee to get all-you-can-eat-or-drink, as other attendees told police. FishCo, popular Wednesday night spot for Brown students, had to close down for three days as punishment.

So let this be a reminder to you, kids… FishCo may seem like it’s all class with its Ke$ha soundtrack and pole dancing and house-drink Fish Piss (we still don’t know exactly what it contains), but it can be sketchy too.

Just don’t complain about the prices.
