NJ.com- Both sides agree that the incident began with a dispute between the alleged victim and Carroo's now-girlfriend, Maria Vega. The alleged victim previously had a dating relationship with Carroo.
Peter Gilbreth, the attorney representing Leonte Carroo in his criminal matter speaks with NJ Advance Media reporter, Brian Amaral, after proceedings at family court in New Brunswick. The first video shows a group of people arguing outside the Hale Center. Leonte Carroo isn't even in that video, Fetky said.
The second video was taken about 10 to 15 minutes later, and depicts a major escalation in violence. It shows that Vega was surrounded and attacked by women who, like the alleged victim, worked for Rutgers recruiting, Fetky said. The alleged victim approached the scrum and swung a purse at Vega, who was wearing white pants, Fetky said.
Fetky said the second video shows Carroo grabbing Vega and taking her away from the fight to protect her. But the video does not show Carroo assaulting the victim, because he didn't, Fetky said.
The victim said that she was attacked, unprovoked, by Carroo's girlfriend and others after a football game. As she was on top of Vega, pinning her to the ground but not hitting her, Carroo came up, grabbed her and slammed her on the pavement, she said.
Carroo "never laid a hand on her," said Peter Gilbreth, who is representing Carroo in his criminal matter.
You mean to tell me that the alleged victim wasn't just casually walking down the street by herself when this fight took place? You mean to tell me she wasn't just coincidentally waltzing on by the Hale Center alone when she was jumped by Leonte Carroo's mom, his girlfriend, and his girlfriend's family member? You mean to tell me this attack, that happened 45 minutes after a major college football game, wasn't completely unprovoked? You mean to tell me she wasn't completely uninvolved until she was assaulted?
Hey, is it too much to ask to get a goddamn police report? So weird how the picture gets painted differently when it's not the "victim" holding the paint brush. I am not saying that these choppy, at best, videos completely exonerate Leonte Carroo. Far from it as a matter of fact. However, they definitely show that that this "victim" wasn't a completely innocent one. I mean, unless you believe that she was "pinning her to the ground but not hitting her". Yeah, THAT sounds super logical. Pretty sure I have never ended up on top of someone without fucking them, or being a willing participant in a fight. Sorry hunny, you may have been wronged after you started the fight, but that doesn't mean you're not completely full of shit. Innocent people don't hit people with purses. Especially when the target in question is a Latina women. As a matter of fact, I'm pretty sure a swung purse is like the international symbol for girl fight. She knew what she was doing, and she, as well as the members of Rutgers recruiting with her, deserve to be charged with everything that their opposition was.
I said it once, and I'll say it again. Leonte Carroo was a goddamn idiot for letting himself get involved in this situation. If he did, indeed, cause physical harm to this woman then he deserves everything, and I mean everything, that comes to him. With that said, before we ruin his reputation, his season, and his potential NFL career, I am going to need more than a personal account of a scorned women that used to fuck him. Unless you were born yesterday you know that's the type of person that will say, and do, anything out of spite. The facts will come out eventually, and let's just hope that it's not Leonte Carroo that makes me look bad.
