Roughly one year after his incident at a bar in East Lansing, Michigan where he allegedly slapped a former Michigan State football player, Draymond Green will now face a civil lawsuit.

High profile California attorney Lisa Bloom says she is filing the lawsuit today.

According to the East Lansing police report, Edmondson said he and his girlfriend were both grabbed by the throat by Green's associates on July 8, 2016, at Rick's American Grill. Green reached a plea deal in that case and avoided jail time just in time to participate in the Rio Olympics last summer. The two say they encountered Green at a bar in MI where Green bumped into Edmonson.

"I still feel his hand on my jaw", Edmondon said.

Last year, Jermaine Edmondson was just a happy young man playing football for the Michigan State Spartans until he ran into Draymond Green at an East Lansing bar and his life changed forever. There are nights where I wake up crying. I don't understand why my name has been turned into a joke while he gets all the credit for being a superstar and standing up for women. Edmondson said on July 9, Green bumped into him at a bar in MI. If found guilty, he could face up to 90 days in jail.

Edmondson said during the press conference that he was mocked online and in person and no longer felt safe on Michigan State's campus following the incident with Green.

Additionally, another source said that Green did not know who the Ohio-native was when he approached him that day.

The accusers are demanding an apology from Green, as well as accountability.
