The Washington Football Team released running back Derrius Guice on Friday after he was charged in multiple domestic violence incidents. Guice was arrested on one count of strangulation, three counts of assault and battery and one count of destruction of property. Strangulation is a Class 6 felony in Virginia.
The Washington Post got hold of the charging documents and they revealed Guice strangled his girlfriend until she was unconscious in his Ashburn home in March.
Via the report:
“The woman, who was only described in court documents using initials, told authorities Guice also pushed her and pulled her hair during the encounter, according to the charging documents filed in Loudoun County General District Court Monday.
After the March incident, the woman had to leave to catch a flight at BWI, according to the charging documents. She told investigators she was in a hurry and did not look in the mirror until she arrived for a layover in Chicago. The woman took a photo of her injuries in a restroom, according to the charging documents.
She suffered bruising to her neck, which also had colored spots on it, according to the charging documents.”
She stated to authorities Guise pushed her to the ground outside of the football player’s home on April 17 and caused her to be injured. She went on to reveal that Guice threw her cellphone into the street, where it shattered. Back in February, she says she was pushed to the ground in his bedroom bathroom, causing an injury to her left thumbnail, with the nail eventually falling off because of a popped blood vessel.
The 23-year-old has since turned himself in and was released on $10,000 bond.
Washington selected Guice in the second round of the 2018 draft out of LSU, but he tore his ACL in his left knee in the preseason and didn’t make his pro debut until 2019.
Guice played in just five games last season after injuring his his right knee and then his left knee again.
