Trial for Panthers’ Greg Hardy to begin Tuesday
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Greg Hardy is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday on charges of assault on a female and communicating threats.
The domestic violence charges stem from a May 13 situation with his girlfriend.
Hardy’s 24-year-old girlfriend told police that he beat her up in his uptown apartment during a fight. Hardy’s attorney said it was the girlfriend who was the aggressor.
But arrest warrants filed in court said the girlfriend had visual signs of bruising and swelling to both her arms and her back.
The police report states the two have been in a relationship since September 2013.
Hardy, nicknamed The Kraken, was drafted by Carolina in the sixth round of the 2010 NFL Draft and played his college ball at Ole Miss.
Panthers training camp begins on July 26.
