Fletcher Cox was primed and ready to defend his home last week. The Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle was said to have grabbed a shotgun to scare off a man trying to enter his home with a baseball bat in hand.
According to court documents obtained by Action News in Philly, a man identified as Corbyn Nyemah arrived to Cox’s home looking for his ex-girlfriend, who he believed was inside his home.
“Nyemah allegedly damaged her vehicle before attempting to forcibly enter the home by throwing rocks through the front door.
Court records also reveal surveillance cameras at Cox’s home capturing Nyemah walking around the exterior of the property with a baseball bat and attempting to enter the garage multiple times.
After Cox armed himself with a shotgun, he called police reporting a man attempting to break into his home.
Nyemah then fled in his Porsche SUV.
The Affidavit of Probable Cause says a police pursuit began but due to “erratic driving and identification of the suspect” the pursuit ended at the Commodore Barry Bridge.”
The man told Action news that “he wanted to talk to his ex-girlfriend and believed they were working on rekindling their romance.”
A temporary restraining order has been granted for Nyemah’s former girlfriend.
