Victor Page once had star written all over him.
A streaky shooter with no conscience as a scorer, Page outplayed former Georgetown teammate and NBA legend Allen Iverson during the 1996 Big East Tournament.
Page would play one more year at Georgetown in 1997, this time without Iverson, and led the Big East in scoring. The glory ended their for those who knew and followed Page.
“The suspect jumped out of bed, pulled the victim’s hair tearing it from the scalp,” the statement of probable cause read. “He then dragged her to the bathroom, throwing her into the tub and running hot water on her while punching the victim repeatedly in the face.”
“The suspect then ran into the kitchen and grabbed a knife and stabbed the victim on her right hand and right thigh,” the statement read. “The victim then ran outside as the suspect chased her with the knife and stated he was going to kill her.”
I still can’t get over the mugshot, and it just serves as a reminder of how quickly things can go wrong in a person’s life.
