Audio of Greg Hardy's 911 call released

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The audio recording of Greg Hardy's 911 call has been released, but it doesn't provide much help in figuring out what happened at his apartment.

According to WCNC News, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police have released four 911 phone calls that were made by Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy, the concierge at Hardy's apartment complex, and one of Hardy's neighbors. None of the calls were made by the alleged victim, Nicole Holder, who claims she was assaulted and threatened by Hardy.

Below is a sample of the contents of one the 911 calls:

In the first 911 call, you hear a man, presumably Greg Hardy, say, "I'm behind the bar. I'm not touching her. She's trying to hit me."

Continuing on, you hear the man says that a woman was swinging her hells at him, hitting him in the face.

"She's refusing to leave. Told me to break her arm when I told her to leave," the man says in the first 911 call, ..."She is using her fists and her heels. I have one of her heels now, the other is on the ground."

About 32 seconds in to the first 911 call, the man says what sounds like, "I have a video tape of everything," but the voice is muffled and hard to make out.

At one point in the first call, you can hear a woman in the background screaming, "You shouldn't have hit me."

Greg Hardy's 911 recording

However, Hardy wasn't the only person to call 911, and based on the transcript from WCNC the phone calls made by his neighbors paint a disturbing picture:

:23 - :38 (woman) Some girl's getting her (expletive) beat upstairs. And I heard it. And I seen it. He is beating her (expletive) right the (expletive) now. So get here now.

Operator: ok so what?

I was in the apartment. He's beating her (expletive).

1:18-1:32 (man) So uh she was in the front room. The other girl getting beat up, she was in the back room. (Woman) We need the police here now before this girl gets seriously hurt. Now.

In the last call, a neighbor tells dispatch that he wants to report more info, but doesn't want to use his name because he is afraid of his neighbor, saying he's "6-foot-4, 290 pounds."

So, now we have 911 calls telling two different sides of the story which makes the situation even more confusing. All we know right now is the police are investigating the issue and are trying to find out exactly what happened, so speculating any further on the situation is ill-advised until more details are known.
