Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Erik Walden spent the weekend in jail, after allegedly assaulting his girlfriend, leaving her in need of medical attention. Because of the Thanksgiving holiday, court was closed for the weekend and Walden stayed in jail. Authorities say Walden’s girlfriend called police early Friday and was treated for injuries at St. Vincent Hospital in Green Bay.
Following the arrest, Walden’s girlfriend claimed the incident was a misunderstanding. Instead, she claimed the pair had been arguing when she tripped and hit her head on the bed. She said it was hospital staff who alerted police. Hmmm….
But local police chief Randy Bani said the woman involved had called authorities around 6.30 a.m. The arrest came just hours after Walden’s team was victorious on Thanksgiving day against the Detroit Lions.
A rep for the Packers released a statement saying: ‘The Packers organization is aware of the situation involving Erik Walden. ‘We are in the process of gathering more information and will refrain from making any further comment.’
What do you think, did he beat her, or is she trying to cover it up?
