Former Green Bay Packers Running Back Ahman Green Arrested On Child Abuse Charges
By Dr. Sinclair N. Grey III
Can we be honest for a moment and say that child abuse is very serious? Under no circumstances should a child be abused. No matter what they say or do, adults must keep their composure when dealing with minors. Too many times, adults will find themselves tangled up in the legal system when they allow their emotions to get the best of them.
Former NFL running back for the Green Bay Packers Ahman Green was arrested on Monday morning in Wisconsin for allegedly slapping and shoving his 15-year-old daughter. Green’s alleged abuse caused his daughter to hit a kitchen cabinet. So what was the argument over? Dirty dishes. Green’s daughter was asked to do the dishes if she wanted her allowance. When she didn’t comply, Green is said to have allegedly dragged her in the kitchen, rip her shirt, and punch her in the face.
Green was booked into the Brown County jail. He was charged with child abuse-intentionally causing harm.
The Daily Mail reports, “According to the Brown County Sheriff’s Office, the 6-foot-1, 220-pound retired football player was taken into custody at his home at around 11.30pm after his daughter fled the family’s home and ran to a neighbor for help, claiming she had been abused.”
“The former National Football League star running back later partially corroborated his daughter’s story, telling responding officers that he struck his daughter with an open hand over the head and shoved her after a day-long dispute over household chores, police said.”
FYI: Green is married and the father of five children. He was inducted into the Green Packers Hall of Fame in 2014. He is the all-time leading rusher in Packers history.
According to Green’s website, he is involved in mentorship and philanthropy.
Who knows what will happen to Green. It seems as though he needs to watch his temper.
