NFL linebacker arrested for reportedly threatening to kill his ex-girlfriend with a tire iron
Carolina Panthers linebacker Damien Wilson was arrested in Texas last week after his ex-girlfriend claimed he threatened to kill her with a tire iron.
According to reports, Damien Wilson was arrested and is facing charges of assault with bodily injury of a family member.
Wilson showed up to her house drunk and enraged. She had reportedly ended their relationship and he snapped. When she arrived home she found her porch damaged. He then came out of the bushes with a tire iron threatening to kill her.
His ex-girlfriend then claims he choked her friend and damaged a laptop. Wilson then tried to run her over with his car before leaving.
The young female filed a protective custody order against the NFL player.
Wilson’s attorney claims he did nothing and he is waiting for the facts to be presented.
Wilson was with the Jacksonville Jaguars last season and played in 17 games. He was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys back in 2015 and also had a cup of tea with the Kansas City Chiefs.
