Less than a week after the lethal combination of domestic problems and a gun led to one NFL player murdering his girlfriend, a different NFL player finds himself in the headlines for domestic problems and guns.
According to the Baltimore Sun, Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs turned in his firearms recently following a domestic dispute involving his girlfriend.
Candace Williams, the mother of Suggs’ two children, filed a court complaint against him in November after Suggs initially filed a custody complaint against her.
Two days after the original complaint, several 911 calls were received from Suggs’ address. Neither ultimately resulted in a report being filed.
"The guns were surrendered over to police pursuant to the court order, and they (Suggs and Williams) are resolving their issues," Suggs’ attorney told The Sun.
"All I can tell you is that he's in rightful and lawful possession of the guns but turned them over pursuant to the requirements of the law."
He also said that he anticipated "all of the domestic-related issues will be resolved” at a court hearing next week.
More details about this will likely emerge at that point.
