Noel Devine, who last Friday plead no contest to a misdemeanor battery charge, said the West Virginia student he allegedly assaulted Feb. 16 at a Morgantown nightclub "threatened to kill me."
Devine said he was approached and threatened by the unnamed individual on three separate occasions that evening, including one incident where the person grabbed a bottle from the bar and asked the Mountaineer running back if he "had a problem."
Devine said the altercation occurred after the individual was kicked out of the club, with the person was waiting for Devine as he exited.
Devine said that, as a result of the altercation, he was ordered to pay a $250 court fine and perform 24 hours of community service.
"Other than [the altercation], everything else is great," said Devine, who acknowledged being nervous when Rich Rodriguez left for Michigan. But Bill Stewart and his new coaching staff are "pretty cool."
Said Devine: "Everything is straight now."
