The police report reveals that Seahawks offensive lineman Chad Wheeler felt his girlfriend had died after allegedly knocking him unconscious – and was shocked.
The Seattle Times reported that Wheeler carried out a backup offensive tackle for the Giants from 2017 to 2019, who was arrested on Saturday on suspicion of felony domestic violence.
Officers reacted to the residence and found the woman locked in a bathroom after a “physical fight” with Wheeler. He told police during a 911 call that he was being “killed” and broke his hand. The Seahawks lineman was taking medication for bipolar disorder, but recently stopped taking it, police reports show.
Reportedly, Wheeler, listed at 6 feet, 7 inches and 310 pounds, was shocked when his girlfriend regained consciousness after the alleged attack.
“Wow are you alive?” Wheeler asked him.
Pictures taken on Twitter to beat the woman showed her blood-soaked nose in a hospital. The text messages he allegedly sent indicated how cold Wheeler was during the alleged attack.
“He thought I had died on my bed and continued to eat dinner,” the message read. “When I ran to the bathroom, they said, ‘Wow, you’re still alive” while sieving on a smoothie. “
Police reports state that Wheeler told his girlfriend to bow down.
The Seahawks told ESPN on Tuesday that team officials were aware of the situation and were still “gathering information”.
Wheeler was released from the King County Jail on Tuesday after posting $ 400,000 bond, online records show.
He is scheduled to return to court on Wednesday for a probable cause hearing. The Seattle Times reported that a judge ordered Wheeler not to contact the victim or possess a weapon during a hearing on Monday.
In 2015, Wheeler was detained by Los Angeles police while a student-athlete at USC, where he was punching walls and windows under the influence. He was not arrested, but was taken to the hospital for a psychiatric evaluation.
Wheeler played five matches for the Seahawks last season and is now a restricted free agent.
