Chris Owens denies he vandalized ex's home

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Accused of trashing the apartment of his child’s mother, Falcons CB Chris Owens denies doing it and says his ex-girlfriend is only out for revenge and to ruin his name.

“He’s been a good dad,” Randall M. Kessler, Owens’ attorney, told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. “He plans to keep being a good dad. He denies all of the claims.”

OwensAs the AJC points out, Owens – who has a 9-month-old child with his ex, Latia Terry – was named the Atlanta Falcons man of the year for his community work, and the scene described in the police report (holes in the drywall, a destroyed flat-screen TV, bleach poured on her clothes and shoes) seems out of character for Owens.

Owens also says that, after Terry took out a restraining order against him, she berated him on the phone, harassed his friends and slandered him on the Internet.

A family violence session is scheduled for Wednesday in Gwinnett County.
