It’s not completely uncommon to see some reports coming out of the NFL in relation to players being arrested, but this is one of the more horrible stories that you’ll hear.
CBS confirmed that (now released) Seattle Seahawk Chad Wheeler has been arrested on suspicion of domestic abuse, while they go into some of the details of the alleged attack and it does make you wonder how a person could actually act like that and think they would get away with it.
Obviously he’s in a lot of trouble, he was arrested and is now released on bail, while the Seahawks have cut him and want nothing to do with him and understandable so.
It’s still too early to tell what his eventual punishment will be, but it’s safe to say he doesn’t want to run into Dez Bryant anytime soon as he took to Twitter to vent his frustrations:
Chad wheeler if I ever run across you
We are going toe to toe because I wouldn’t mind making the news breaking something across your fucking head then ask you are you still alive?..
I know 1 thing the media don’t mind destroying the black athletes without the facts

Obviously some of you will be thinking that’s a somewhat barbaric way of dealing with things, so here’s a bit more on the allegations to put some further context on the story:
Chad Wheeler of the @Seahawks tried to kill his girlfriend because she wouldn’t bow to him. He was even surprised at her survival.

Obviously this shouldn’t really matter but he’s a fairly forgettable player so there’s no danger that any NFL team is going to touch him again after this, but he could also be giving up his freedom as well as his career very shortly.
