The St. Louis Rams released offensive guard Claude Terrell after he was arrested early Tuesday and charged with assaulting his wife at a suburban Houston hotel. Police in the Houston suburb of Webster said they found a woman with "obvious signs of physical injury" after responding to a disturbance at a Hampton Inn. The woman said she was Terrell's wife and told police he had assaulted her. The 6-foot-2, 330-pound Terrell was found at a nearby hotel, where he was arrested and charged with assault-family violence, a class A misdemeanor, police said. Terrell was on probation from a 2006 assault charge of causing bodily injury to a family member, according to court records. He was given a $1,000 fine and two years of probation for that charge in February.
With all of the wife beating going on in pro-sports lately, you would think they have an incentive clause worked into their contracts. When you breed athletes to play violent games, how can you expect to turn that off when they leave the field. Take Darrent Williams. The guy leaves his gat at home and next thing you know, he's eaten by maggots.
