Off The Hook In Agg. Assault Case
2/22/2018 3:59 PM PST
Tim Donaghy ain’t goin’ back to prison … ’cause officials in Florida are NOT filing charges against the ex-NBA ref after allegedly threatening a man with a hammer … TMZ Sports has learned.
We broke the story … Donaghy was arrested on December 19, 2017 and booked for aggravated assault — a 3rd-degree felony. He was facing up to 5 years in prison.
For his part … Tim claims he was only trying to rescue his daughter … who he believed was doing drugs, and in a dangerous environment.
Good news for Donaghy … according to a court doc filed earlier today, prosecutors in Manatee County will not file charges … meaning he’s off the hook.
The one catch … the state still has the right to file charges in the future … but that seems unlikely.
Bottom line, Donaghy’s free and clear.
