VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – Tennessee Titans wide receiver Justin Hunter has been released on bond after an arraignment hearing in Virginia. He was in court on charges of felonious assault.

The charges stemmed from an incident at a bar in Virginia Beach in early July.

Authorities were called to the Sandbar Raw Bar during the late night hours of July 3. One victim was taken to the hospital to be treated for injuries sustained during the incident.

Witnesses identified Hunter as the suspect.

The 24-year-old appeared in court Tuesday.

The judge set bond at $25,000, with several conditions.

Hunter must remain on good behavior, must stay employed with the Titans or seek employment if released, cannot consume any drugs or alcohol and must abide by a curfew of 11 p.m. to 5 a.m.

In addition, Hunter must have no direct or indirect contact with the victim or any of the witnesses.

A preliminary hearing was set in Virginia for Thursday, September 3, the same day as the Titans' final preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings in Nashville.

Hunter attended high school in Virginia Beach. He played college football at the University of Tennessee. He played the last two seasons with the Titans, after being drafted by the team in 2013.
