More alleged details surface in Ka’Deem Carey incident

Earlier this week, a weird story broke that Arizona running back Ka’Deem Carey was served with an order of protection stemming from an incident that occurred just two days before Christmas. At the time, the details of what happened weren’t clear.

Consider that partially changed. Per one report, those alleged details are none too pretty and could result in domestic violence charges.

According to Tucson police, Carey was trying to get into his pregnant ex-girlfriend’s house to get a lighter to smoke drugs. She wouldn’t let him inside so he allegedly pushed the woman down and then slammed the door on her hand.

In response, Carey tried to get a restraining order against the 23-year-old ex-girlfriend and her mother, but that request was denied.

Carey will be officially charged in court at a hearing this week.

Wildcats coach Rich Rodriguez and athletic director Greg Byrne have already issued statements on the matter. “Once more specific information is available, we will act accordingly,” Rodriguez said.

Carey led the nation in total rushing yards (1,923) and yards per game (148.4) in 2012 as a sophomore, earning AP All-American status.

    Well, it’s that time of year when we read all about Rich Rodriguez’s talents regarding leading / building young men of charater.

    Not saying Carey is guilty or not. Just think the American justice system is such a sham. All you need to get your way is 2 tits, a hole, and a heartbeat.

    Stay classy Legion of Boom.

    Are you actually sticking up for this dirt bag?

    Try reading and comprehension before passing judgement.

    The only facts are:
    1. She filed for a protection order making the allegations against him.
    2. He filed for a protection order against her mother and herself. Allegations not made public.
    3. She was granted the protection order. It’s granted “ex parte”, which means the defendant is not given the right to legally defend him/herself in front of the Judge, initially. Hearing is usually w/in 10 days.
    4. He was denied the protection order. Judges findings not made public.

    Some odd things of note:
    1. It’s extremely rare for men to file for a protection order. Let alone against a woman and her mother.
    2. Only her allegations were made public by the TPD. Not his allegations, nor the Judges formal denial.
    3. No domestic violence charges have been filed yet. From 18 days ago. It doesn’t take much for DV investigators to build a case, let alone one with physical marks.

    One would think from the information provided it would be a slam dunk. But apparently it isn’t. Is it far fetched to think that maybe her mother and her staged this and filed false allegations?

    Constitution makes us “Innocent until Proven Guilty”. Unfortunately, society is losing sight of that.
