Yes, a true journalist runs with unsubstantiated rumors then calls to confirm after the fact.
You better hope this is correct (and that is sad) or you are likely to be hearing from his lawyer.
I am sure this is true. "The Rock" likes the ladies and his lady probably found out about his after hours workouts.
Congrats. You beat the PI and Times to the punch (pun intended).
SLOG: Your source for the Seahawks.
I don't believe it, a football player with an anger and violence problem
now we're sportsblogging!
On the surface this sucks, but remember both Bryce Fisher and Locklear were arrested in years past only find out later that the charges levied against them were either dropped or reduced.
@1: What part of "according to jail records" did you miss?
Ugh. Ibiza. Spending your birthday there is is the biggest crime of all.
I bet the court's sentence will be something like a 15 yard penalty, since the justice system is so notoriously hard on pro athletes ;P
Sad to see this Seahawks lineman stoop low and treat his woman the way he treated AJ Smith.
Everybody settle down, now. Maybe she had it coming to her.
@9 - You already have all the details you need to know to suggest that the justice system will go easy on him?
Oh, and who the hell is AJ Smith? Is he the right-fielder for the Seattle SuperSonics? I love the way he bends the puck on his free-throws.
he looks drunk in that picture. and he looks like he is about to drunkenly step on someone.
where are the other dv arrests from last night? when will those be published?
Pay an individual grotesquely to be grotesquely aggressive and violent.
SHAZAM! I'm so surprised that he is violent!!
That's why we love football!
I thought "pro football player" and "domestic violence assault" were coterminous. I'll bet he either is, or is about to become, a Super-Christian as well.
i thought all pro sports athletes were supposed to decamp for Orlando in the off season.
#4, Modest Mouse and The Shins take umbrage at the idea only jocks can beat women.
@9 using the term "his woman" is objectifying. She is not his possession.
Next time try a more dignified term, such as "his baby momma".
Nice work on getting the mention on profootballtalk.com. Mazel tov Jonah, you've hit the big time.
What do you tell Rocky's girlfriend with the two black eyes?
Nothing. She's been told twice.
What's the first thing Rocky's girlfriend does when she gets home from the domestic violence shelter?
The dishes if she's smart.
Gomez - real men don't hit women for any reason. It is spineles.
Huffy - jokes like that create an environment that allows Gomez make the dumba$$ comments that he made.
josh bomb - charges are often dropped out of fear of further abuse - not because they weren't true. Victims of abuse generally go into survival mode and make bad decisions out of fear. That is one of the many ways that the cycle of abuse continues.
It is time that men stop hitting women PERIOD. Anything less than that is unacceptable.
