Details Emerge in the Suggs Case


From the Carroll County Times

Baltimore Ravens Pro Bowl linebacker Terrell Suggs stands accused of pouring bleach on and delivering a blow to the chest of a Baltimore woman named Candace Williams during an alleged confrontation late last month, according to court records.

Suggs’ attorney, Eric Gordon, didn’t respond to an interview request Monday afternoon seeking comment.

Williams filed a complaint last Friday that led to a temporary restraining order being granted by the presiding judge that prevents Suggs from seeing her and mandates him to leave their home in Windsor Mill. The judge also ordered that Williams, 26, may drive Suggs’ luxury sport utility vehicle while the matter is pending.

A hearing on the case is scheduled for Friday. Suggs hasn’t been arrested or charged with a crime.

Suggs hasn’t returned a telephone call and a text message seeking comment.

A three-time Pro Bowl selection, Suggs did not make the trip with the team for a 27-14 Monday night loss to the Green Bay Packers.

According to Williams, the fight stemmed over a dispute regarding game tickets.

She wrote in her filing that that Suggs’ best friend as well as his cousin were present during the alleged altercation.

Williams stated that Suggs was angered by not knowing who the tickets were for that she wanted to attend the Ravens’ game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

At first, Williams wrote, she thought Suggs was joking around with her. However, an argument and fight allegedly ensued with Suggs on the other side of a bathroom door that he “stiff-armed.”

In the filing, Williams wrote: “So me, still thinking he’s playing, I kick his arm off the door to close it, the whole time laughing thinking we’re playing and he throws bathroom soap thing at my head.”

Williams also wrote that Suggs cursed her and accused her of injuring his arm.

She acknowledged spitting on his chest in retaliation.

Then, Williams wrote that the former NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year knocked her down, grabbed her neck and held an open bottle of bleach above her while threatening to drown her with the cleaning product.

According to the report, the bleach spilled onto her and their son.

Then, Suggs allegedly told her to leave the residence before he went to the Steelers game.

When the story broke last week I wanted to wait until after some more details of the incident were presented before I wrote anything or even commented on the issue. I’m still waiting to hear some sort of statement from Suggs and we may not get that until Friday. But if any of the above story is true I’m personally disgusted by it.
