Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs was forced to hand over “several firearms” in an ongoing domestic abuse case between Suggs and his longtime girlfriend, according to a report in The Baltimore Sun.
Suggs’ lawyer, Warren Alperstein, told the Sun that Suggs’ girlfriend and the mother of his two children, Candace Williams, had filed a court order in November.
“The guns were surrendered over to police pursuant to the court order, and they [Suggs and Williams] are resolving their issues,” Alperstein told the Sun. “All I can tell you is that he’s in rightful and lawful possession of the guns but turned them over pursuant to the requirements of the law.”
Suggs declined to comment, and it was unclear what sparked the latest court order. Police received two 911 calls from the Suggs’ household on Nov. 21, but they did not take reports.
This is not the first incident between Suggs and Williams, who was once his fiance.
In 2009, Williams alleged in an application for a protective order that Suggs “threw a soap dispenser at her head, hit her in the chest with his hand, and held a bottle of bleach over her and their 1-year-old son.” Her claims were not investigated, and Suggs was never charged with a crime.
Suggs is expected to be a game-time decision on Sunday after he tore his right biceps last week.
