HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The UH defensive lineman, Kennedy Tulimasealii who is suspended after being accused of two counts of assault, resisting arrest and harassment pleaded not guilty on Tuesday.

Tulimasealii faces these charges after an incident on April 12, involving his ex-girlfriend and a scuffle with police that got him pepper sprayed.

The lawyer for his teammate, Ka'au-Moana Gifford, who was also arrested is hopeful the charges against his client will be dropped.

"What he did wrong was he was the good samaritan. The police were right, he was making an arrest and the police went over to put a pair of shorts on Kennedy's bottom. He was naked he was down on the ground he was pepper sprayed cause the nighbors were coming out," Defense attorney, Paul Cunney said.

Ka'au-Moana Gifford hopes to be back in school and reinstated to the football team by July.
