We reported yesterday Ravens all pro linebacker Terrell Suggs was forced to surrender nine firearms in the wake of an ongoing domestic case.
Today some of the details of that case have come to light. Suggs girlfriend Candace Williams filed an order of protection last month claiming the outside linebacker punched her in the neck and dragged her along side a speeding car with their two kids in the back.
Suggs has since had to turnover his guns, which includes an AK-47 among others. Suggs is facing no charges related to the alleged incident that took place in early September.
Ms. Williams filed the temporary protective order requesting that Suggs not abuse, threaten, harass or contact her, according to documents obtained by The Baltimore Sun on Friday.
Williams reportedly filed the order on Nov. 20, a day after Terrell Suggs filed a custody complaint alleging Williams had endangered their children on different occasions.
Suggs’ attorney, Warren Alperstein released a statement on the matter.
“I’m fully aware of the content of her complaint.”
“Terrell has fully complied with the court order. There has been absolutely no finding by any court that Mr. Suggs committed any wrongdoing. As it stands now, this is a temporary order that we are confident will favorably resolve for Mr. Suggs in the very near future.”
The Ravens director of security has denied that Suggs owned an AK-47, but does confirm that he relinquished a shotgun.
Suggs released his own statement on the matter Friday as well.
“My fiance and I have two beautiful children together whom we both love and care for tremendously. The personal issues that the two of us have faced recently have been addressed in a responsible and adult manner and have been resolved. I am certain that we will get through this matter and move forward as a happy family.”
