I am so over hearing these stories about athletes putting their hands on women. Like there really has to be something in their water because these instance happens too often.
According to TMZ
Jabari Bird choked out his girlfriend so badly during a Sept. 7 incident that she lost consciousness … according to prosecutors.
24-year-old Bird appeared in court in Boston on Thursday where prosecutors laid out the case against him … and the allegations are horrible.
The incident took place Sept 7.
He was eventually arrested for assault and battery, strangulation and kidnapping.
Bail was set at $50,000 — and he’s been ordered to pay in cash, as that’s all the court accepts.
Suffolk D.A., Dan Conley, states, “Anyone living in fear of domestic violence can count on our office for a safe, supportive, victim-centered environment.”
“As this case illustrates, a trusted figure in a survivor’s life can make disclosing abuse to law enforcement easier.”
“It might be a friend, coach, family member, or co-worker. It might be police or prosecutors directly. But no matter the circumstances and no matter who you are, it’s important to remember that there are people ready to help you.”
