When it’s said and done, Chad Wheeler just might get charged with attempted murder.
The former backup OT of the Seattle Seahawks had reportedly stopped taking his medication for bipolar disorder in the days before he brutally attacked his girlfriend and had “snapped into a bad place” on the night of the incident.
The police report was obtained by TMZ Sports and it shows things were lot worse than what we already know.
“When cops arrived at the scene, officers say they “could hear a female screaming from inside the apartment” and forced their way inside. They also forced their way into a locked bathroom where they found the woman with blood all over her face and Chad standing behind her.
Cops detained Chad, who was not being cooperative, and he began to repeatedly yell, “sorry” while crying out, “I don’t beat women,” according to the police report.”
The unnamed woman says he “snapped into a dark place” out of nowhere and told her to bow to him, which she refused and got choked for it.
Cops documented her injuries that included “noticeable fingerprints on both sides of her neck as well as capillaries that had burst at the back of her throat.”
Officers say her “left elbow joint was obviously swollen and deformed compared to her right arm.”
Wheeler has since released a statement:
“Events happened over the weekend that transpired from a manic episode. I am deeply sorry for the pain and suffering that I have caused to [the victim] and her family.
“I apologize profusely for the turmoil that I have caused to my family, teammates, fans and those closest to me. The most important thing right now is that [the victim] gets the care she needs and I get help. Both are happening.
“It is time for me to walk away from football and get the help I need to never again pose a threat to another. I cannot express my sorrow or remorse enough. I am truly ashamed.”WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
