Rashad Weaver, a fourth-round pick of the Tennessee Titans, was charged with simple assault over the weekend, Chuck Morris of WSMV in Nashville reports.

Weaver, 23, is charged with punching a pregnant woman in the side of the head after an altercation on April 18.

"The allegations against my client, Rashad Weaver, are completely false and reckless. Mr. Weaver takes these charges very seriously, and we look forward to clearing his good name," attorney Dennis M. Blackwell said in a statement. "Without question and without hesitation, we deny Rashad punched anyone, especially a woman. We intend to conduct a full investigation of these charges, and intend to pursue all legal remedies available to Rashad."

According to court records, the complaint was filed in Allegheny County on Friday, the second day of the recent NFL Draft. Weaver was picked by the Titans on Saturday.

Court records show a summons was issued on Monday.

The Tennessee Titans said Monday they were aware of the charges against Weaver.
