Baltimore Ravens Running Back Bernard Pierce Robbed At Gun Point, Car Stolen


While Bernard Pierce may get to split carries with teammate Ray Rice this season, that’s probably the last thing on the mind of the Baltimore Ravens running back.

According to a report from CBS Philadelphia, the second year player was robbed at gun point on Sunday night and had his car stolen.

Per CBS:

Those sources confirm that Bernard Pierce was robbed at gunpoint Sunday evening along the 7500 block of Haverford Avenue. His BMW was also stolen.

The car was later recovered and processed at the police garage for possible clues.

Pierce and a male companion, sources say, were shaken but were not injured during the robbery. Sources say a gunman jumped from a car while his accomplice remained behind the wheel and robbed Pierce and his companion, then stole the vehicle.

The car of the former Temple product was found in another part of the city and impounded for police to search for evidence.

No suspects have been named as of this point.

Thankfully nobody’s night ended in a trip to the hospital or worse.
