Police Investigating Owens - Toronto_Dirty_Bird - 06-15-2011 12:18 PM
Police in suburban Atlanta are investigating Falcons cornerback Chris Owens after he allegedly trashed his ex-girlfriend's apartment and threw bleach on many of her valuables, TMZ.com reported Wednesday citing a Gwinnett County Police report.
The alleged incident occurred Sunday night at the residence of LaTia Terry, with whom Owens has a 9-month old child.
According to the police report, Owens smashed holes in walls and a giant-screen television, threw lamps and broke the baby's crib. He took jewelry, clothing, shoes and photos of the former couple, threw them into a pile in a bedroom closet and tossed bleach on them.
Terry has obtained a restraining order against Owens, who started three games during the 2010 season for the NFC South champions.
The 5-foot-9, 179-pound Owens was a third-round pick out of San Jose State in the 2009 NFL Draft.

if only he would have shown that passion in the Packers game. I've said it before and I'll say it again, cut his bum ass. Chris Houston was enough toast for me to enjoy.

So CB is definitely priority #1 now. Bring on Nnamdi!

Hole in the wall ok we all lose our temper but the the big screen and baby crib man thats overkill.

Ray Lewis was right.

I don't want to see Nnamdi here. Too much money in the backfield would spent when we need more money upfront to be spent.
Besides, Colonel Sanders would be an improvement over Owens.

Chris Owens just bought himself a one-way ticket out of here (maybe). He may have been on thin ice just solely on his production since he has been in the league, NOW, he definitely is on thin ice (if all of this is true and accurate).

Eh...it was stupid, and extremely childish...and whatever lawsuit she files against him will probably take a big chunk out of his wallet...but I don't see this as a red flag on the Falcon Radar. He didn't assault anybody, it was his girlfriend(or ex, after this), and seems more like a romantic outburst than anything else. hear about this all the time with couples staying together

I was pretty shocked when I first read it this morning, my first thought was: "Wasn't he voted our Walter Payton Man of Year??"
