RESTRAINING ORDER FOR FITZGERALD (1 Viewer)

Not to be outdone by Falcons running back Michael Turner and his recent non-arrest arising from a domestic disturbance with the monther of his infant son, Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald reportedly is on the wrong end of a restraining order, resulting from an altercation with the mother of his son.

According to TMZ.com, Fitzgerald has been ordered to stay away from the mother of his child after allegedly pushing her to the ground and pulling her hair out.

Angela Nazario claims that, when she brought the child to visit Fitzgerald in October, the parents of the child began to argue. Fitzgerald allegedly tried to “diffuse the situation” by raising his fists and challenging Nazario to a “play fight.”

She opted not to play; Nazario swung at Fitzgerald and “may have hit his face.”

Then it was on. Allegedly.

Nazario claims that Fiztgerald “grabbed me by my hair with both hands on the back of my head very very hard and tossed me across the room,” and that when she tried to leave he “grabbed the back of my neck and slammed me down on the marble floor.”

Alleged Nazario: “ was disoriented for awhile and could not get up, I remember he mumbled something about ‘that’s what happens when you try taking my son away from me.’”

She then realized that she had lost “chunks” of hair.

The incident could subject Fitzgerald to scrutiny under the NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy.

The Cardinals host the Falcons on Saturday in a wild-card playoff game.

Not the news I wanted to hear tonight. Ftiz always seemed like a decent enough guy.

While this could turn out to be a non-issue, I was looking for a reason to move Fitz for Calvin, and this just sealed the deal

 
This one surprises me, though it probably shouldn't. I was always under the impression (false impression?) that Fitz was one of the good guys. Perhaps he is but has a temper, but certainly still changes my perspective of him.

why so long to file?
 
Whats worst?????

Scenario A

Beatting another human being, who also so happens to be the wife of your child. Taking her and whipping her across the room, pulling out her hair, and throwing her to the ground in rage when she tries to leave your abusive house.

or

Scenario B

Accidentally shooting yourself with an unregistered gun.

In terms of what is the "worse" thing to do, no question... but the reason you have such a huge penalty for the latter is the immense danger it puts many other people in, considering the crowded nature of New York City. You also must consider the context of why the concealed weapon law is what it is, in NYC - its essentially a guarantee for the cops to get a LOT of gang members, rapists, murders, theives etc. off the street when they have no more hard evidence than said unregistered weapon.So on the surface, you are right - it is ridiculous that having a weapon and doing no purposeful harm to another garners a worse result than actually beating the mother of your child, but there is some rationale to the strict punishment from the latter.

TMZ via ProFootballTalk? Yay journalism!
Yeah, it's exceptionally sad that TMZ is ever quoted as a reputable source.That said, HOW ABOUT A RESTRAINING ORDER AGAINST ALL CAPS!
TMZ is probably more reputable with its claims than many "legit" and "mainstream" media outlets.
That word doesn't work when you're trying to make a point. And TMZ will, by definition of their tactics and objectives, never be reputable (read up on the reputability of it's founder). They may get stuff right, but never will they be reputable. It's a muckracking, gutter press institution.

She seems to have a nasty temper. Based on what it sounds like i doubt Fitz did what she claims he did.
 
So she hit him first? Not sure I udnerstand exactly what happened. If she physically assaulted him, doesn't he have a right to fight back (within reason, obviously).

 
If we can read between the lines and assume there is some truth to the way it all went down, all I can say is that a woman keeping a father from his child is highly maddening and would be one of the very few ways I could see myself ever losing my temper. And no, the law will not help you. Women have an extremely long leash to play with when it comes to flat out jerking a guy around before the law actually does anything about it. Getting physical with a woman is wrong, but screwing around with a parent child relationship is worse. If she did that she deserved whatever she got.
