This week was supposed to be one of the most exciting of Laremy Tunsil's life.

Instead, the star Ole Miss left tackle has been taking hit after hit.

Once projected as the top overall draft pick in Thursday's NFL Draft, several trades indicate Tunsil will likely be passed over for two quarterbacks.

Now, Tunsil's ongoing saga with his stepfather, Lindsey Miller, has popped up just a day before the draft.

The Clarion-Ledger reported Wednesday morning that Miller is suing Tunsil for an alleged assault that took place in June. Miller also claims Tunsil defamed his character and caused "intentional infliction of emotional distress," according to the C-L.

The lawsuit was filed late Tuesday at the Lafayette County Courthouse by Miller's representative, Starkville attorney Matthew Wilson.

Both Miller and Tunsil filed domestic violence charges against one another after the alleged incident, but the charges were later dropped.
