Former NFL Star Charged For Allegedly Getting Physical With His Wife. The Details Are Sickening
Former Chicago Bears quarterback Erik Kramer has been charged with misdemeanor battery after allegedly getting into a physical altercation with his wife Cortney Baird.
TMZ reported Wednesday:
As we previously reported … the former NFL player was arrested after he admitted to police he got physical with his wife, Cortney Baird, during a fight at their Agoura Hills home.
Baird claims Kramer flipped out after she confronted him about an argument the two previously had … saying the ex-QB got violent and threw various household items at her.
Now … we’re told cops are hitting Kramer with one count of misdemeanor battery for the incident — and the ex-QB is facing up to six months in jail if convicted.
How many more stories like this one are we going to have? It’s like a never-ending stream. As I’ve said many times before, I don’t know what the answer is, but the NFL has got to figure out a way to curb headlines like this.
Roger Goodell and other NFL executives are all about protecting the image of the league and the shield. That’s pretty hard to do when current and former players are getting in trouble nonstop. It’s a horrific look for the NFL. I literally can’t stress this enough. (RELATED: WIFE OF FORMER NFL QUARTERBACK BELIEVES HE MIGHT KILL HER)
As for Kramer, there’s never an excuse to put your hands on a woman, which is what he’s been accused of doing. Now, this is still America. Everyone is innocent until proven guilty, and we should all be grateful to live in a country like that. I hope they both get whatever help they need. Domestic violence allegations always makes for a rough situation.
Kramer faces six months if convicted.
