Braves lose one of their top prospects for the season

A couple of days ago, I talked about top prospect Braden Shewmake leaving a game with an injury after a nasty collision with Travis Demeritte.

He now faces additional charges of participation in criminal street gang activity, violation of the Georgia controlled substances act, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, possession of a machine gun and drug charges, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

The initial indictment contained 56 counts against 28 people for alleged involvement in crimes committed on behalf of the Young Slime Life street gang. The updated indictment now contains 65 counts, six of which apply to Williams.
