Can I evict a 3rd roommate on the lease for assault?

You may have to file an eviction action against your roommate. if you unlawfully evict your roommate, you may be liable for costs. You and your roommate should consult with a landlord/tenant attorney.
THE ANSWER TO YOUR INQUIRY IS BASED ON THE LAWS AS THEY EXIST AT THE TIME OF MY RESPONSE. DO NOT RESPOND TO MY ANSWER. MESSAGE ME IF YOU HAVE A CRIMINAL OR SERIOUS TRAFFIC TICKET MATTER. THIS WEBSITE IS NOT SECURE. Anything sent over the internet is NOT private and subject to intercept by the Police and the Prosecutor and could be used against you in court. If you have a question set up a private in office consultation where everything you say is protected under the Attorney Client Privilege.
Talk to the police. I believe you are able to file a TRO and have him removed based on the assault. There is case law saying the relationship of roommates may be sufficient.
