Former NFL player stabbed, but faces domestic assault charge

When there is a domestic dispute in Pennsylvania, it is possible that people will be seriously injured and the circumstances will be difficult to decipher. If a person is hurt so severely that he or she needs to be hospitalized, that individual might seem to be the obvious victim, but that person could end up being arrested and confronted with various charges. With an unusual situation of unfortunate violence in a home, those arrested must consider the long-term consequences they will face and have a legal defense.

The former college football star and NFL player, Terrelle Pryor, was arrested after a domestic incident in which he was stabbed and hospitalized. He is charged with simple assault. In its investigation, law enforcement states that Mr. Pryor was in an apartment with a 24-year-old woman. They had a disagreement, and she is alleged to have stabbed him.

She also faces a variety of charges including attempted homicide. Mr. Pryor went to the hospital under his own power at around 4:30 a.m. He is expected to recover from his injuries. The investigation is continuing. He was most recently a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars early in the 2019 season, but was released after an injury.

People who get into an argument are unlikely to expect it to escalate to the point of violence with a stabbing and charges of attempted murder. However, it does happen and people can suffer serious injuries, lose their lives. There can be extended jail sentences because of what happened. When there are two people who were in a domestic dispute and both were charged with crimes, it can be complicated to determine what happened. Each side should know that legal advice is crucial to combat the allegations and avoid the worst possible penalties.

With cases like this, the consequences can be severe in myriad ways. He was charged with assault and she faces several charges after being accused of stabbing him. As police and prosecutors try to determine what happened, it is wise for both parties to contact an experienced law firm to lodge a defense against these state charges.
