A former standout high school quarterback in Tampa Bay is out on bond after being accused of beating his ex-girlfriend.
The 29-year-old is facing domestic battery charges in connection with an incident in Key West earlier this month involving his girlfriend at the time.
According to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, the man attacked the woman in their hotel room after reading text messages on her phone.
He is accused of punching her several times and knocking her to the ground and stomping on her throat.
The man was released on a $50,000 bond.
After being arrested for domestic battery, it is absolutely vital to the outcome of your case to seek expert legal defense as soon as possible. Domestic battery is a serious crime that involves the harm of a household or family member.
Domestic cases are very sensitive in nature, and all too often involve false accusations as a result of relationship problems. Untruthful statements may be made out of anger, and when police are brought into the matter, there is usually always an arrest made for domestic battery.
