Derrick Ward was known most notably for his stunt with the New York Giants as he was their running back. He also won a Super Bowl with New York in the 2007 season as they defeated the Patriots in the Super Bowl.
Ward is now facing legal trouble as his wife Naomi Lee Allen-Ward is coming out said that he has been physically abusive towards her over the course of their nine-year marriage, per TMZ Sports. Allen-Ward went on to say that in one situation where he was explaining to their daughter about scuffed shoes, he was verbally abusive when she tried to get him to calm down. Derrick said “You always have to f***ing say something! I hate you! I’ll kill you! I don’t care if I go to jail.”
Allen-Ward also noted an incident where he poked her in the eye, choked her and said “You’re so f***ing stupid.” Other violent occurrences mentioned were Ward punching walls, breaking objects and shouting all in front of their children.
Ward is now facing a restraining order that states that he must be 100 feet away from his wife and children.
