If This Police Report Is Accurate, Then It’s Not Good For Chris Cook
Vikings cornerback Chris Cook was charged with a single count of felony domestic assault today, after an incident with his girlfriend in his townhouse this weekend. According to the police report posted on the Minnesota Star Tribune's website, Cook was angry over his girlfriend's ex.
Upon arriving at Cook's house, police found his girlfriend of 10 months on the living room floor, sobbing and grabbing the side of her head. According to her, Cook had become enraged when he learned that she had spoken to an ex-boyfriend, and then got violent.
According to Victim A, the defendant was upset that Victim A spoke to an ex-boyfriend. The defendant grabbed Victim A and swung her on a bed. The defendant climbed on top of Victim A and grabbed Victim’s A’s neck with an open hand. The defendant applied pressure to Victim A’s neck and constricted her ability to breathe. Victim A freed herself by grabbing the defendant’s hair. When Victim A stood up, the defendant struck her in the ear causing Victim A to hit a wall.
After fleeing to the living room, Cook allegedly grabbed her by the neck again, cutting of her oxygen. It's not clear how or why he stopped - hopefully, it was because he took a break from being a psycho and realized he was choking a woman. When the police got there, there was "hemorrhaging in [her] eye that is consistent with strangulation."
Cook was released on $40,000 bail. He promptly tweeted the following message:
He followed that up with an apology to the fans, Vikings ownership, coaches, his teammates, friends and family.
