On Monday, former first-round selection for the Jets Darron Lee was arrested in Ohio on charges that he assaulted his mother and the mother of his 2-year-old kid. According to the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, Lee remained in jail on Tuesday morning after being arrested on two counts of misdemeanour assault and two counts of misdemeanour domestic abuse.
Why is Darron Lee Arrested?
Darron Lee, a linebacker picked by the New York Jets in the first round in 2016, was recently arrested for allegedly assaulting both his mother and the mother of his son. TMZ Sports has learned that Lee was detained on four different occasions. Two of the charges against him are for domestic abuse, and the other two are for assault, both of which are classified as minor offences. As of Tuesday morning, he is incarcerated. On Monday in Dublin, Ohio, Lindsey McGlone, mother of Lee’s child, phoned the police. She said that Darron’s mother Candice Lee had been attacked by her son.
TMZ Sports reports that Candice said her kid yelled at her and then slammed her against the wall. After throwing Candice to the ground, he began punching her multiple times. McGlone stepped in to prevent further violence towards Candice. After McGlone accused Lee of cheating on her on October 17, McGlone went to the police and said that Lee had beaten her. According to McGlone, Darron Lee sprang into bed with her and threatened to kill her and their child. She claims he also tried to slit her throat. She also says that Darron slammed her phone against the wall, and that it landed on her head. McGlone claims that she, too, was attacked on her way downstairs.
Sneak Peek into Darron Lee’s Career
On January 2, 2016, Lee posted a statement on Twitter announcing his intention to forego his remaining eligibility and join the 2016 NFL Draft. Most NFL scouts and analysts had Lee pegged as a late first-round pick in the 2016 draught before he ever participated in the NFL Combine. Lee’s impressive performance at the NFL scouting combine workouts firmly established his status as a first-round choice candidate. When compared to other linebackers, he ranked first in the 40-yard dash and broad jump, third in the short shuttle, and fifth in the vertical jump. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.43 seconds, which was faster than both Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott and wideout Braxton Miller. Lee had the third-best broad jump by a linebacker since 2006 with his 11 feet, 1-inch effort.
