Greg Oden Arrested For Punching His Ex-GF In The Face
USA Today – NBA player Greg Oden was arrested in Lawrence, Ind. this morning, accused of punching his ex-girlfriend.
The incident happened around 3:30 a.m. in the 7200 block of Maple Bluff Place, according to a Lawrence Police Department report.
Officers arrived at the home to find the victim crying and lying across a bed holding her face, police said. A woman described as the victim’s best friend first told officers what happened, police said.
“He punched her in the face,” the witness said, according to the report.
The victim initially was “uncooperative,” police said.
The victim’s best friend, police said, told the woman, “There isn’t that much love in the world. You need to tell that he punched you in the face.”
Police “observed blood, swelling to the nose, lacerations to the forehead and nose area of the victim’s face,” according to the report. They also “observed blood on the sofa and floor in the sitting area. (They) observed (blood) on the living room carpet (and) dirt from a flower pot that was knocked over.”
The house belongs to Oden’s mother.
Oden, 26, was “calm, apologetic and cooperative” when officers spoke with him, police said.
“I was wrong, and I know what has to happen,” Oden told police, according to the report.
Oh you were wrong Greg Oden, and you know what has to happen?? Alright Ray Rice, you sorry piece of shit. You lay your hands on a woman.. punched her straight in the face.. probably broke her nose.. and then you have the fucking AUDACITY to turn it around and be like “Oh man, I was wrong, I’m so sorry, I’m so apologetic.” Cut the shit. This should be easy.. you put your hands on a woman – turn the page – you go to jail. That’s it. At the very least, the NBA cuts ties with you.
Too be honest.. if I was Adam Silver, I’d be thinking “Well… Oden doesn’t have much of a career, maybe now’s the time to throw the old Adam Silver hammer down, and set a fucking precedent. No beating women.. or you’re fucking out.”
Too harsh? Maybe. We all know if Oden was an NFL player he’d be looking at a 2 game suspension and would be talking out against domestic violence. Fucking Goodell.
