Right when you thought the sports world couldn’t get any more weird and disturbing, a guy like Shareiff Rhaheed-Muhammad comes along and just takes the cake in terms of weird creepiness. Okay, I know it sounds like I’m being harsh, but the three-star Louisville Cardinals commit has been arrested for a despicable act.
What exactly am I talking about here? I am talking about the fact that Rhaheed-Muhammed has been accused of impregnating his cousin. Yes, he was going to be the father of her child until she got an abortion. What is even worse about the situation(yes, it gets worse) is the fact that his cousin is a minor at just 14 years old.
The three-star linebacker was set to join Louisville’s football team this fall, but this act of despicable sexuality will likely halt that process. Head coach Bobby Petrino is apparently “aware” of the situation and will likely act on it as soon as he gets more information on the arrest.
While this is just an allegation right now, the girl told her mother about the situation and the pregnancy was aborted in November. Rhaheed-Muhammad knew about the pregnancy and apparently refused to provide a DNA sample, however a DNA sample was obtained via a search warrant at his high school and the rest was history.
According to the police report, the 14-year-old girl said “it just happened” and that Rhaheed-Muhmmad tried to do it again later and she refused.
This is one of the sickest arrest cases I have ever heard. It looks like this kid’s future is going to be very cloudy.
