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.
