Court documents were filed Monday in Loudoun County’s General District Court that describe Derrius Guice’s alleged domestic violence against his girlfriend, and the incidents that are chronicled in those filings are troubling.
In one encounter, Guice allegedly strangled his girlfriend until she was unconscious. In that exchange, which happened in March, she also says Guice pushed her and pulled her hair.
Guice’s girlfriend also says the ex-Washington Football Team player pushed her to the ground in April while the two were outside of Guice’s home. Guice is also purported to have thrown the victim’s cellphone, which caused it to shatter.
In addition to those two alleged incidents, the woman claims Guice pushed her to the ground in February as well. That confrontation happened in Guice’s bedroom.
The documents state that Guice’s girlfriend has photographs of all her injuries from the various issues with Guice.
Guice turned himself in to police on Friday, and soon after that, he was released by Washington. He has since cleared waivers and is currently a free agent.
During a press conference on Monday, Ron Rivera stated that he moved on from the running back because it was “in the best interest of this organization, our players and our fans going forward."
