Fisher Charged With Fourth-Degree Assault

Posted May 31, 2006

As first reported by Mike Sando of the Tacoma News Tribune, Seahawks DE Bryce Fisher appeared in Kirkland Municipal Court on Wednesday, May 31, on a fourth-degree assault charge. The charge stems from an April 11 domestic dispute. The case was continued until December 6th.

Washington State RCW 9A.36.041 defines fourth-degree assault as follows:

Assault in the fourth degree.

(1) A person is guilty of assault in the fourth degree if, under circumstances not amounting to assault in the first, second, or third degree, or custodial assault, he or she assaults another.

(2) Assault in the fourth degree is a gross misdemeanor.

Fisher, a former Buffalo Bill and St. Louis Ram, agreed to a four-year, $10 million deal with the Seahawks on March 15, 2005. His nine quarterback takedowns in 2005, a career high, helped Seattle's defense lead the NFL with 50 sacks last season.

A graduate of the Air Force Academy, Fisher is a Captain in the Washington Air National Guard. He has no known history of legal issues.
