Chad Wheeler was arrested a few days ago, and hopefully getting ready to spend a lengthy amount of time in prison for his actions.
The Seattle Seahawks offensive lineman was arrested after police responded to a call at his residence where they were forced to push their way inside after hearing his girlfriend scream at the top of her lungs.
The Seattle Times alleges Wheeler began strangling his girlfriend after she refused to bow to him. When she did regain consciousness, Wheeler was allegedly standing near the bed and said: ‘Wow you’re alive?’
On Wednesday, former college teammate and current Pittsburgh Steelers offensive tackle Zach Banner took to Twitter and spoke negatively on Wheeler and what he did.
“Chad Wheeler is someone completely different than my roommate and brother at SC, and today I had to come to terms with that. What he did was heartbreaking, and I will never forgive…
My thoughts, and prayers go out to the victim. She and her health should be the upmost priority.”
Officers reported that Wheeler shouted: ‘Sorry’ and ‘I don’t beat women’. His girlfriend was taken to the hospital where she was treated for a dislocated arm and multiple injuries to his face.
Wheeler joined the Seahawks in 2019 and played in five games this past season.
