Aberdeen Police put out a statement regarding the arrest.

“Investigation led to the arrest of Kyle Douglas Hadala, age 29 of Sarasota, Florida. He was charged with simple assault.”

According to sources, Hadala was in South Dakota for work. He has been released on a personal recognizance bond and is not permitted to have any contact with the victim.

His initial court appearance is scheduled for July 10th.

The Aftermath

Goedert did not sustain any serious bodily injury.

This was the deciding factor on why Hadala was charged with simple assault, a Class 1 misdemeanor, according to Brown County chief deputy state’s attorney Ernest Thompson.

Goedert has been recovering at his home in South Dakota and is said to be doing “fine,” according to those who have spoken with him.

Police were called to the scene on a report “of people busting glasses and have busted heads.” Radio transmissions from the scene asking to run the identifications of Goedert, 25, and two other men.

Goedert went to high school in South Dakota and attended South Dakota State. He is entering his third season in the NFL.

He finished second on the Eagles in receptions (58), receiving yards (607) and receiving touchdowns (5) last season, behind fellow tight end Zach Ertz.
