CelebnSports247.com reports that the incident took place between Mario Edwards Jr. and a pregnant woman at the Hilton Charlotte City Center hotel on Oct. 17 – the night before the Bears played the Carolina Panthers.
According to reports, Police responded to reports of a woman hitting a man with her hands and scratching his forehead.
The man was Chicago Bears defensive lineman Mario Edwards Jr. – both determined to have bruises and scratches – both were also listed as victims in the police report.
In the documents obtained by TMZ, the woman says Edwards got aggressive when she turned down his sexual advances that night.
“The woman claims she took out her phone to record Edwards yelling at her — and he reacted by smacking her in the eye with his hand.
Then, she claims, Edwards grabbed her by the arm and “dragged her to the door of the hotel room.”
The woman claims Edwards continued his attack down the hotel hall by an elevator where he struck her in her arm.
In court docs obtained by TMZ Sports, the woman claims she was hospitalized for injuries sustained during the alleged attack”
In addition, she claims she was pregnant at the time.
Edwards agent said that Mario denies ever striking the woman.
Mario’s agent, Peter Schaffer, states:
Mario Edwards doesn’t condone domestic violence. At no time did Mario Edwards do anything that raised to the level of domestic violence, or any violence.
Schaffer says Mario acknowledges there was a verbal dispute, but denies any assault:
When she started to scream and yell, Mario did what he’s been told. Walk away and de-escalate the situation.
Basically, he is admitting something happened that night, and the woman is not lying. Now it comes down to who has the better attorney.
What is disturbing is the fact that Mario is being accused of assault on a pregnant woman!
Was he that desparate for sex?
