In Shockingly Unshocking News, It Looks Like The Assault Charges On Leonte Carroo Are Getting Dropped
Yahoo- A judge has lifted a temporary restraining order filed against Rutgers wide receiver Leonte Carroo after a woman he was accused of attacking said she didn't think it was necessary.Carroo and the woman also signed a consent order Tuesday in New Jersey Superior Court to have no contact with each other. They also planned to appear in Piscataway municipal court later Tuesday to get simple assault charges against Carroo dropped.
Carroo was accused of attacking the woman after a football game last month and slamming her onto concrete. The woman received injuries on her hip, hands, elbow and head.
Carroo was suspended from the team. His lawyer, Peter Gilbreth, has said he plans to petition the school to lift the suspension so Carroo can return to the playing field.
Wha...what?!? You mean the girl that was so adamant about being body slammed onto the concrete by Leonte Carroo ALL OF THE SUDDEN doesn't think that pressing charges is necessary? The scorned woman that was seen on video attacking Leonte's girlfriend with a group of people wasn't an innocent victim? Well, I never saw this coming. I genuinely thought that Leonte was going out of his way to practice his WWE moves on unsuspecting women in front of a large crowd of people just minutes after a college football game. I guess now I can see how that sounds far fetched, but it seemed totalllllllly reasonable at the time...
I said it before, and I will say it again. Leonte Carroo was a captain of the Rutgers football team and has the potential to be a very good NFL player some day. The fact that he put himself in this position means he's not completely innocent. With that said, I will never understand how someone could try to ruin someone's entire life strictly out of spite. Forget Rutgers football for a second. Regardless of how this all plays out, this incident will continue to haunt Leonte Carroo for the rest of his career, whatever that career happens to be. You just don't hear someone's name associated with domestic abuse and ever think about them exactly the same way ever again, no matter what a judge has to say. As a selfish fan of Rutgers, I hope Carroo is reinstated because it's a pleasure to watch him play. However, if he isn't I hope he is able to shed this label that has been fraudulently placed upon him. Outside of this one transgression, he seems like a relatively good kid with a bright future. Hopefully a scored woman didn't ruin that for him.
