Atlanta Falcons’ OT Quinn Ojinnaka arrested over Facebook fracas

He’s been charged with simple battery for the dispute with his wife. From the Atlanta Journal Constitution-

An Atlanta Falcons player is out on bond following his arrest earlier this week, reportedly after a fight with his wife over a Facebook friend.

Offensive tackle Quinn Ojinnaka, 25, was booked into the Gwinnett County Jail at 1:40 a.m. Wednesday on a misdemeanor charge of simple battery, according to jail records. He was released about four hours later after posting a $2,400 bond.

Ojinnaka was arrested at his home in Suwanee after he fought with his wife and spat at her during an argument over a female friend of his on the social networking Web site, Facebook, according to a police report.


The altercation happened as Ojinnaka was preparing to watch a basketball game Tuesday night, the police report said.

Ojinnaka told police his wife tried to stab him with a pen, and she said he threw her on some stairs before tossing her out of the house, the police report said.

Neither party asked for medical assistance. Even if Mrs. Ojinnaka did what her husband claims, it doesn’t justify his actions. A 300-lb football player against a woman is a mismatch besides any violence except in self defense towards women sickens me.
