CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The woman who alleges Carolina Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy assaulted and threatened to kill her said he “just snapped” after an argument over her short-lived relationship with rapper and Charlotte Bobcats minority owner Nelly, according to new court documents released Thursday.
In a Charlotte Police Department warrant worksheet for obtaining an arrest, the woman said she and Hardy lived together until they broke up in March and she moved out.
In the documents, the woman states she and Hardy were trying to reconcile and went out Monday night. They returned to the Hardy’s residence but he was upset over the woman’s relationship with Nelly, whose name is Cornell Haynes Jr.
The court document states that the woman was lying in bed with Hardy when he “just snapped” and then “physically threw her into the floor, and then tossed her into the tile bathtub.”
Earlier Thursday, Charlotte District Court Judge Charlotte Brown dismissed a protective order request by the woman after she failed to show up in court.
After the protective order was dismissed on Thursday, attorney Stephen Goodwin walked out of the courtroom and abruptly announced that he’s no longer representing the woman citing “irreconcilable differences” with his client.
In the new court documents, the woman contends that Hardy “slammed her into a futon that had several guns and machine guns lying on it causing her to cut her arm on the end of one of (the) guns” and “began choking her twice during the assault.”
The documents also state there were visible welts around her collar bone area.
Hardy was released from jail on $17,000 bond Wednesday, one day after being arrested on charges of assault on a female and communicating threats. While the protective order request has been dismissed, charges against Hardy remain.
His next court date is set for June 27.
