The accusation documents provide first insight into the allegations against Guice.
After the incident in March, the woman had to leave to catch a flight at BWI, according to alleged documents. She told investigators she was in a hurry and didn’t look in the mirror until she arrived in Chicago for her temporary shelter. The woman took pictures of her wound in the toilet, according to the accusation documents.
She had bruises on her neck and also had spots of color on it, according to the incriminating documents.
Guice̵7;s lawyer, Peter D. Greenspun, issued a statement after Guice’s arrest on Friday said that investigators had not fully examined the allegations that occurred months ago and accused the group of releasing them. Guice “without a single question of what happened”.
“Derrius will defend these allegations in court, where a full review of the allegations will take place, as opposed to the actions of local law enforcement and the Washington Football Team that worst, direct contradiction with all sense of fairness and due process, ”said Greenspun.
Guice’s girlfriend also told authorities that the soccer player pushed her to the ground in his bathroom in February, causing injury to her left thumbnail, according to the tied documents sin. The nail finally fell off because a blood vessel emerged.
The woman took photos of the wound after the incident that happened on February 14, according to the incriminating documents. Guice has been charged with assault and battery related to the incident.
It was the same woman who told Guice authorities had pushed her to the ground outside the soccer player’s home on April 17, injuring her, according to incriminating documents. The injuries were not described in the court documents.
The woman also told investigators that Guice threw her phone on the street where it was shattered. She took pictures of her wound that day, according to the incriminating documents.
Washington chose Guice in the second round of the 2018 NFL draft, after the native Baton Rouge starred in his run back to his hometown LSU. He started his third NFL season before being arrested and then released from the team on Friday.
Coach Ron Rivera said on Monday that his decision was an immediate switch from Guice, saying it was based on what Rivera believes is in the team’s best interests.
“Anytime you have to launch a talented, young footballer, it’s always a difficult decision,” Rivera said during a video conference with reporters. “But this kind of situation, this kind of situation, we take those allegations very seriously, and we have to make a decision in the future.”
Guice’s first trial is scheduled for Aug. 28. He turned himself in at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center on Friday, just after 5 p.m., and was charged with a charge of strangulation, three crimes of assault and battery use, and one for destruction of property. He was handcuffed in the parking lot before being led inside, and just before 7:30 pm, he was released for $ 10,000.
His arrest came after three incidents were reported to the Montgomery County Police Department in Maryland, where the alleged victim lived, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s office. The sheriff’s office became aware of the charges on July 22, and the investigation was coordinated by officials in both Loudoun and Montgomery counties.
In Friday’s announcement that it had cut Guice, Washington said it was aware of the allegations on Thursday and immediately contacted the NFL. Team officials then met with Guice and told him he was exempt from team activities while the club reviewed the situation. Rivera said on Monday that “from what we learned later, we have made a decision” to release Guice.
The head coach declined to elaborate further on the team’s internal process, but said that during his talk with his players on Sunday he told them he had made a decision he felt was best for the franchise.
“And if it is the right decision, we will benefit from it, otherwise it will be for me,” said Rivera. “I’ll take full responsibility as we keep trying and making sure we do everything the right way, and we will go from there.”
When asked about the difference between Guice’s plight and his guardian Reuben Foster, who was arrested for domestic violence before Washington’s previous regime captured him in November 2018, Rivera said Foster was may “show that he has been largely vindicated”. The charges against Foster, who was recovering from the torn ACL he suffered last spring, have since been dismissed.
“Reuben and I talked about some things, some specific things, I won’t go into details,” said Rivera. “But one thing that Reuben has shown since I was here is that he is doing everything the right way. … He has done great things in his detox. He has done a great job working with our coaches. I am very happy for the young man’s chance. You know, this is a guy in need of a change of scenery. I think that might be one of the things that really benefits him.
“Who knows, that’s what might have been needed in Derrius’s case, an opportunity to change the landscape,” added Rivera.
