Steelers offensive lineman Jarron Jones was arrested early Saturday morning after allegedly physically abusing his girlfriend. The practice squad player was charged with aggravated assault, strangulation and simple assault.
According to his girlfriend, Jones strangled her, hit her and smashed an Xbox console on her face before picking her up and throwing her outside.
The woman told police Mr. Jones had strangled her, hit her in the face, smashed his Xbox console over her face, picked her up and “threw her outside,” according to the complaint. She then told police she blacked out and lost consciousness during the altercation, according to the complaint.
Police at the scene detailed that the woman had sustained abrasions to the right side of her face near her temple, bruising with the onset swelling on her right forearm and a small abrasion on her upper left chest region, according to the complaint. She then signed a victim notification form, but denied a lethality assessment, according to the complaint. Medics transported her to UPMC Presbyterian under stable condition.
The allegations are disturbing as hell. The fact that there are multiple injuries to his girlfriend doesn't bode well for Jones or his future in the NFL.
