Former NFL RB Corey Dillon – a four-time Pro Bowler who amassed more than 11,000 rushing yards in 10 seasons with the Bengals and the Patriots – has been charged with two misdemeanors pertaining to his April arrest on the suspicion of drunk driving.
As the L.A. Times writes , Dillon later was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence, though he was never actually charged. Here’s what the Times wrote about that incident:
Dillon and his wife were arguing over their pending divorce and child custody when she called 911, saying she had been assaulted by her husband, according to a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
(Desiree) Antoine-Dillon alleged that Dillon "poured milk over her head, threw water on her and poured soy sauce on her" during the dispute, according to the filing rejection released Thursday. She also told authorities she suffered "a superficial cut on her thumb."
She later told authorities that her husband never hit her and her injury was not caused by physical contact with Dillon.
In another sign that Dillon might not have been the greatest dude in the world, here’s a story from his playing days. One day, a well-respected, well-established TV sports anchor approached Dillon from behind as he sat on his stool in the locker room.
“Hey Corey,” the newsman asked. “Do you have a minute to talk to us?”
Dillon, without saying a word, raised both arms and flipped him the double-bird.
Said the newsman: “I guess that means ‘no.’”
