Seahawks backup offensive lineman Chad Wheeler was arrested over the weekend on suspicion of domestic violence after beating his girlfriend for not bowing to him.
A picture showing his beaten girlfriend in the hospital has been released and as you would expect the picture is not easy to look at.
Chad Wheeler of the @Seahawks tried to kill his girlfriend because she wouldn’t bow to him. He was even surprised at her survival.

The NFL has to hand down a stiff punishment for this. The league hasn't been great at handling these kinds of situations in the past.
The fact that Wheeler is bipolar does complicate things a little bit, but it doesn't excuse almost killing someone, obviously.
