Charges Filed: Strip Club Dancer Runs Over Local Football Star, Drags Him Down the Street



A strip club dancer has just been indicted on felony assault charges for allegedly running down a former local football star and one other man in May.

19 Action News reports that Cierra English, a dancer at Hustler Club in the Flats, used her car as a weapon against Raymond Fisher- a former Glenville High School football star and a 2010 draft pick of the Indianapolis Colts.

Gunning her vehicle, English apparently drove at two men, flipping one onto the roof of her car and dragging Fisher down the street. Doctors predicted the football player would never walk again.

Several months later, Fisher says he's slowly re-gaining use of his legs after a bout of intense physical therapy. "Right now I'm probably at 40-50 percent," he told 19 Action News. "Still working, still going to rehab."

Apparently this isn't the first dispute between Fisher and English, who've had domestic trouble befores.

Fisher didn't elaborate, but said "I just want her to get what she deserves at the end of the day."
