Here’s a shocker for you — an NFL player was involved in an alleged domestic incident.
The latest to join this sad group is Greg Hardy of the Carolina Panthers. The DE was recently arrested for an incident involving his girlfriend. There aren’t any clear details of what took place at this time, but it appears the incident is of the misdemeanor variety.
Is anyone else tired of pro athletes getting involved in these incidents?
Who knows what really happened between Hardy and his GF? The point is that the incident shouldn’t have gotten to the where it did. If the police are involved, someone/something went too far. That person appears to be Hardy, but we’ll have to get his side of the story.
At the same time, there’s a chance that there won’t be a story. This incident, like many others, could essentially get swept under the rug. He could agree to a plea, the charges could get dropped or he could just pay a fine and be done with it. Who knows? But the damage is already done. Hardy has already landed himself on a terrible list.
He doesn’t deserve any kind of ‘benefit of the doubt’ either. If the cops hauled you downtown, you made a mistake of some sort. The mistake could be as simple as associating with the wrong girl, but regardless, Hardy needs to make some changes.
Whether he likes it or not, he’s a role model for kids. He’s in the public eye and everything he does is magnified. It’s time he grows up and starts making better decisions, even if he’s completely cleared in this case of alleged domestic violence.
