Justyn Ross Allegations
Prosecutors on the case said that cops told them the incident between the couple happened in Johnson County, Kansas on October 23. It was reported that Ross allegedly found out that his girlfriend had been cheating on him, causing the ensuing chaos. According to documents, the woman told the police that Ross was viewing her phone, and then he got in her face, pushed her, threw her to the floor, and then started throwing objects at her.
Luckily, the woman only suffered very minor injuries, getting away with just “a small scratch.” It was also reported by the woman that Ross broke several of her belongings during the confrontation, including her jewelry, cell phone, her laptop, and her Mercedes key. Two witnesses in the neighborhood say that they saw him push her, and then ran a knife across her car.
Kansas City Chiefs Career
Ross was ultimately arrested over the allegations and was charged with one count of domestic battery as well as one count of criminal damage. He ended up pleading not guilty to the charges at his hearing on October 24, and he will now appear in front of a judge once again on December 4.
Ross was placed on the Commissioner’s Exempt List following his arrest, which means that he is not allowed to participate in any kind of practice or games with the Chiefs. The troubled receiver has played in just seven games in his young NFL career and has amounted to just three catches. We will likely get more updates after his court appearance in December.
