In that case, she could still ask to have the charges dropped and it would be done if the DA agrees. This being a high profile case though, could change how things are typically handled. (My wife works for an attorney and sees these types of cases all the time...)

Its still completely up to the prosecutor. I know a spouse can refuse to testify. So does that mean anyone else cannot refuse?

This is a lot different than the Rae Carruth situation

Nevertheless it is serious and disappointing

Agreed, however, domestic violence is a grim reminder of a murdered pregnant woman. If this case holds any merit, then no way JR can keep him on the team. The press will be too bad.

Side note, I personally think this girl got traded in on a different model this past weekend and she made a scene of things being her potential cash cow was slipping away. A vindictive temper tantrum! At least I hope that's what this is

I reserve judgment until the whole story is out. In about 95% of these types of cases, the charges are dropped by the alleged victim. I guess we will see how this one plays out.


Just because charges are dropped does not mean the accused is innocent.


I think in NC the police can take out charges if they see evidence of domestic violence.  If that is the case...the victim can't drop.  If she has documented injuries as reported.....trouble

All I'm saying is he should have learned from Charlie Murphy and locked himself in the bathroom.

Likewise, just because someone is charged, doesn't mean they are guilty either. You are right that the police can take out charges with evidence. However, if the alleged victim won't testify, the DA doesn't have much of a case. After hearing 911 calls, I can see this being dropped, right or wrong.

We are getting ripped by other fan bases and social watch dogs. Big cat is not pleased. Bad timing for Hardy too. Ultimately he is owed due process. This just seems overblown to me. Neither required medical attention. People get angry and have a go at eachother sometimes. If it ends with this Hardy shouldn't be viewed as a woman beater.

I am no way condoning Hardy's actions but it was a misdemeanor. They both were drunk and in the long run it is he said /she said. Other than the witnesses that heard the commotion no one saw anything. Hardy said she attacked him first and he went crazy.


I think she will get some money and Hardy might get suspended a game or two or three but it will blow over and Hardy will remain a Panther. IMO

This is still a very serious issue, though because of the internet and social media, we've twisted this thing around so many times that it's easy for us to blow it off because "we are done with it."


Let's think about this:  Two young people's lives will be changed for ever.  Right now, I'm leaning towards Hardy's innocence of criminal activity.  Regardless though, he still has to carry this around for the rest of his life.  She will have to deal with her own reputation from these activities for the rest of her life.


Fact is there was no shortage of stupid that night.  If Hardy gets to play another down of pro football, he needs to thank his lucky stars.  If the girlfriend can get a normal job and have a good, normal life after this, she should thank her lucky stars as well.

They're not going to release a player with Hardy's talent over an incident like this.
