PHOENIX — Police said Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer broke his wife’s nose during an argument that began after she learned about his recent phone contact with another woman.
Search-warrant records made public Tuesday said the July 21 argument came after Dwyer’s wife came to believe he was cheating on her.
Dwyer was arrested last week after his wife alleged Dwyer assaulted her on July 21 and 22.
The arrest came as the NFL is under fire over a series of violent off-the-field encounters involving some players, including Ray Rice. The day after his arrest, Dwyer was placed on the reserve/non-football illness list, meaning he won’t play again this season.
Prosecutors filed aggravated assault and other charges against Dwyer.
Student: Ex-Titan chased him, friends
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A college student told a 911 dispatcher that a man he later identified as Rob Bironas chased he and his friends, then tried to hit their pickup truck minutes before the former Titans kicker’s fatal crash.
Metro Nashville Police Department released copies of two 911 calls Tuesday afternoon. One call was made by Bironas’ wife reporting him missing at 11:40 p.m. on Sept. 20. The second was from Belmont University student Connor Fraley while being chased by Bironas, who was driving a white SUV.
Fraley says on the 911 call that the man, who had cursed them at a stop light, was swerving all over the road trying to hit their pickup truck.
Another woman also said Bironas tried to run her and her husband off the road just before the kicker crashed.
reality show not so real
LAS VEGAS — The pot wasn’t real. Neither, admitted Floyd Mayweather Jr., was much else that went on in the cable television reality shows promoting his latest fight.
Not the joint rolling parties with a bevy of female friends in his Las Vegas mansion. Not the 31-minute fights without a break in the “Dog House” of his gym just off the city’s glittering Strip.
Not even the betting between Mayweather and others on who was going to win.
Called before Nevada boxing regulators to explain what went on in the Showtime “All Access” segments, Mayweather said it was all just made-up entertainment to sell his rematch this month with Marcos Maidana. He said it worked, bringing in enough of an audience for him to sell more pay-per-views.
