NFL suspends Quinn Ojinnaka for a game

Last May, Falcons offensive lineman Quinn Ojinnaka was arrested for allegedly fighting with and spitting at his wife, after Ojinnaka’s wife confronted him regarding a female friend on his Facebook page.

Ojinnaka claimed at the time that she had tried to stab with him a pen.  She claimed that he “threw her on some stairs before tossing her out of the house.”

Ojinnaka was charged with simple battery.  Now, Jay Glazer of FOX reports that Ojinnaka has been suspended for a game by the NFL for violating the Personal Conduct Policy.

The move implies strongly that Ojinnaka eventually pleaded guilty or no contest to the charges.  It’s also possible that he entered a diversion program, which also sets the table for potential discipline.

Ojinnaka is one of the Falcons players to whom Glazer supplied MMA training during the offseason.  It’s unknown whether they are also Facebook friends.

    Are Glazer and the steroid user Cushing still Facebook friends?

    Does anyone else find Glazer as annoying as I do? This guy seems like a real wanna be to me.
    Has he done anything that would lead us to believe his a football and MMA expert?
    Hey…. if I’m wrong please let me know.

    Uh, how come the women are never held accountable for their actions? If she’s going after him and makes the first strike, all bets should be off.
    The laws in this country are bullcrap in this regard. Women can attack men, but men can’t defend themselves or retaliate? We’re just supposed to tale whatever they give us?
    Give me a break. Throw the woman in jail too. They want equality, give it to them!

    Last I heard, Okajima was pitching for the Red Sox. He didn’t look like a guy who’d spit on his wife.

    Fighting and spitting gets you 1 game, while accuations and no charges gets you 6 games?? Does not add up!

    Twitter feuds, grown men on facebook. The world needs WWIII.

    It’s amazing how many players have anger issues, but none come close to Shawn Merriman and his Roid Rages.

    Lol. With a pen? Does that really justify throwin your woman on the stairs? Just another nobody thug.

    yeahh dude, I completely agree with this. freakin ridiculous a woman can come at me however she wants but I can’t prevent her physically in any way. That equality thing too… If they ever have a draft in this country again, women better be draft eligible or I’m going back to the ‘cooking and cleaning’ mentality.

    I Couldn’t agree more with you. He’s real annoying and thinks he’s the sh*t, when in reality, he’s just a straight up dork.

    She needs to be punished.
    These woman always got some trifflin, lot lizard, chicken-head type crazy ass bitch behavior that is never punished!
    I wish he had more stairs to throw her down, sounds like she had it coming to her.
    For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
    He is getting screwed over as bad as LaMichael James for the U of Oregon

  16. Colts18 says: Jun 3, 2010 9:17 PM

    It never said he threw her down the stairs, just on it. like he pushed her while on the first floor against the stairs.
    These women act like this becuase they know once cops show up all they have to do is cry and put on an act and then they get to sit in their mans house and watch him get hauled off to jail for defending himself from another human being, it shouldn’t matter if they have ovaries or not.

    The Unmighty Quinn saw his future replacements on the roster get drafted a few weeks ago: Mike Johnson & Joe Hawley.
