Greg Hardy accuser gives chilling details of alleged domestic violence

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

Domestic violence is a deplorable criminal element, but the picture painted by Greg Hardy's accuser is far more scary than anything we thought.

Carolina Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy was released from jail this morning after being charged with domestic violence and communicating threats, now more information has come to light regarding the alleged crimes and allegations.

The Charlotte Observer reports that Hardy's girlfriend Nicole Holder has taken out a restraining order against the defensive end after being assaulted and threatened. More disturbing details emerged.

The arrest warrants accuse the Panther lineman of throwing girlfriend Nicole Holder to the floor and into a bathtub, slamming her against a Futon and "strangling" during an argument at his home.

Hardy also said he would kill her, the warrant said, a threat "made in a manner and under circumstances which would cause a reasonable person to believe that the threat was likely to be carried out."

Holder filed for a restraining order against Hardy on Wednesday, according to public records. In her complaint, she accuses Hardy of throwing her on a couch covered "in assault weapons and/or shotguns."

It's important to note that these are allegations and shouldn't be taken as fact, but if true they paint an incredibly scary picture of a player expected to be part of the Panthers' long-term plans. The violence is horrible in its own right, but when combined with death threats and reports of guns make the situation far more serious.

The football ramifications should be on the back-burner. Hardy's agent Drew Rosenhaus was in the courtroom according to the Observer's report and the Panthers issued a simple statement on Tuesday.

"We are very disappointed to learn of the allegations involving Greg and are concerned for all parties as we continue to investigate."

This will now play out in the courts. Any other postulation is inappropriate at this time.
