Running back Jonathan Dwyer is the latest NFL player to be charged with domestic violence.


Dwyer was involved in two separate situations in July, according to Fox Sports 1. The victims are listed as a 27-year-old female and an 18-month-old child. Dwyer is married with one child.

According to TMZ, the two altercations allegedly took place on July 21 and July 22 and Dwyer is facing a total of five charges: one count of aggravated assault causing a fracture, one count of aggravated assault involving a minor, two counts of criminal damage and one count of preventing someone from calling 911.

The Cardinals reacted quickly to the arrest, the team announced that Dwyer has been deactivated for this week’s game against the 49ers.

“We became aware of these allegations this afternoon when notified by Phoenix police and are cooperating fully,” the team said in a statement. “Given the serious nature of the allegations we have taken the immediate step to deactivate Jonathan from all team activities. We will continue to closely monitor this as it develops and evaluate additional information as it becomes available.”[su_csky_ad]

    An “18 month old child”? It’s about time we see a swift move from “deactivated for this week’s game against the 49ers” to a swift and just trial, and should he be found guilty, incarceration — preferably in a facility where he can get decent mental health care.

    The NFL should think about expanding into for profit prisons and hold tryouts for their former and soon to be former players there. Think of all the talent they’d hold on to that way!

    Makes liberals who had a hissy fit over Tim Tebow praying look even more out of touch with reality
