It looks like the situation involving Carolina Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy is going to get a lot murkier. Will Brinson of CBS Sports has gotten ahold of the 911 calls from the incident, and they tell two different sides of the story.
One call paints Hardy as the victim and he is trying to get his girlfriend out of the house as she attacks him and breaks items, hitting him with a shoe. It is Hardy calling for police to come to his aid.
“I’m running around the table right now. She’s trying to hit me with her shoe,” Hardy says on the first call. “Ah s—t. She broke some glass. F—. F—! She’s trying to hit me with another shoe. I’m behind the bar. I’m not touching her. My manager’s retaining her. She’s still trying to get me.”
“She won’t let me close the door. I can’t touch her to get her out. She’s literally kicking and scratching. My manager’s retaining her,” Hardy says. “She tried to hit me once, she hit me in the face twice. I’m trying to stay away from her. Can you please send somebody to help me?”
The other call paints the story that we’ve heard, that Hardy was beating his girlfriend.
“Domestic violence. Some girl’s getting her ass beat upstairs. And I heard it. And I seen it,” a female voice says on a different call, a downstairs neighbor. “He is beating her ass right the f— now. So get here now. I was in the apartment. He’s beating her ass.”
In the first call it is oddly quiet since he is claiming she is trying to hit him at that moment. You can listen to the calls at CBS Sports and decide for yourself.
