Report: Terrell Suggs was required to surrender several firearms last month


As part of ongoing domestic disputes involving Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs and the mother of his two children, Suggs was required last month to surrender several firearms, according to Justin Fenton and Jeff Zriebiec of the Baltimore Sun.

“The guns were surrendered over to police pursuant to the court order, and they [Suggs and Candace Williams] are resolving their issues,” Suggs’ lawyer, Warren Alperstein, told the Sun.  “All I can tell you is that he’s in rightful and lawful possession of the guns but turned them over pursuant to the requirements of the law.”

The catalyst for the recent order isn’t clear; however, the Sun reports that two 911 calls were made from Suggs’ address on November 21.

In 2009, Williams claimed in an application for a protective order that Suggs “threw a soap dispenser at her head, hit her in the chest with his hand, and held a bottle of bleach over her and their 1-year-old son.”  The allegations were not investigated by the authorities.

    Good thing the Steelers put this guy out of commission.

  8. jayhit says: Dec 6, 2012 8:36 PM

    Should surrender his season like the rest of the Ravens already have….

  9. ravenator says: Dec 6, 2012 8:38 PM

    Good thing steelers are in 2nd place but their fans have no idea

    Fall So Hard

  11. ravensdominate says: Dec 6, 2012 8:43 PM

    What is the story here?!?!?! He lawfully surrenderred firearms when asked to by the authorities. So what?!?! And Steel420, the steelers didn’t put anyone out of commission. Our loss to Charlie batch still isn’t as bad as your loss to Tim Tebow in the PLAYOFFS! We’re still two games up on you in the division and still have a better division and conference record than you. No one cares that the rapist is back.

    Ray Lewis didn’t see anything.

    “All I can tell you is that he’s in rightful and lawful possession of the guns but turned them over pursuant to the requirements of the law.”

    So, he lawfully owns the guns, but he was forced by law to give them up? Doesn’t compute.

  14. steelernator says: Dec 6, 2012 8:43 PM

    Perfect example of what the Ravens stand for. Que all the excuses why this retched behaior is acceptable in any way. You are not asked to give up legally owned weopons without a reason.

  15. mikebrownfaux says: Dec 6, 2012 8:47 PM

    I wonder why all these athletes have such temper problems?

  16. steelcurtainn says: Dec 6, 2012 8:50 PM

    A bottle of bleach over a one year old boy. Are you kidding? What a loser!!!!!!!

  17. 69novahawk says: Dec 6, 2012 8:51 PM

    How could this have happened? A soap dispenser? According to Bob Costas, he would have shot them with those guns. You can’t use other tools to cause physical

  18. steelernator says: Dec 6, 2012 8:51 PM

    Ravensdominate, the Steelers totally embarrassed the Ravens AT HOME last week. Last year is over. This year, Ravens got Vick-timized and Batch-slapped. If you want to talk about prior years, we can talk about the Ravens devastating loss in the playoffs last year or the Steelers 6 actual Super Bowl wins. You pick.

  19. trevor123698 says: Dec 6, 2012 8:51 PM

    requirements of the law? To me its only ignorance of the law that could have let him hand them over. All you obedient slaves out there will be thumbing that down if it even gets through

  20. sportsmeccabi says: Dec 6, 2012 8:51 PM

    Right to bear arms.
    That’s rich. It isn’t a right when they can be taken away.

  21. bobbybouche305 says: Dec 6, 2012 8:52 PM

    Good job authorities,lets wait till he kills her and the child to investigate….smh

  22. jayhit says: Dec 6, 2012 8:52 PM

    Losing to timbo still isn’t as bad as losing a AFC championship game with a touchdown pass threw the hands and a shanked 26 yard field goal… R2D2 is going to kill you guys this week….

  23. lilpuppy says: Dec 6, 2012 8:52 PM

    I believe it’s common practice in some areas if you have restraining order from your ex or are facing domestic violence charges one of your bail restrictions is the handing over of your firearms

  24. Ridley Me This says: Dec 6, 2012 8:53 PM

    @2 like when your car gets towed. You are in lawful possession but forced to give it up.

  25. gbpbacker84 says: Dec 6, 2012 8:54 PM

    And you wonder why people cheer for Tim Tebow when the current league is full of so many classless idiots.

  26. edemaauri says: Dec 6, 2012 8:54 PM

    “So, he lawfully owns the guns, but he was forced by law to give them up? Doesn’t compute.”


    I am willing to bet that he was required to give up the firearms temporarily because the mother filed a restraining order or protection order against Suggs. Many states require that during the length of a RO that an individual surrender firearms.

  27. darthbaiter says: Dec 6, 2012 9:01 PM

    I am sure Obama is behind this gun grab! #teaparty member #redneck guy #NRA #gun shop owner

  28. steel420 says: Dec 6, 2012 9:04 PM

    It must be difficult for Ravens fans to cheer for this guy knowing how he treats his wife and children. Damn! At least that torn biceps given to him by the Steelers will limit his ability to throw soap dispensers and poor bleach on his loved ones.

  29. geniusfan says: Dec 6, 2012 9:11 PM

    Is anybody really that surprised? Considering who we’re dealing with here I’m not. I mean his mentor has sort of been there and done that already if you know what I mean.

    In related news Bob Costas wants more bleach and soap control so tune in to the halftime show Sunday night to hear all about it!

  30. rajbais says: Dec 6, 2012 9:13 PM

    This sounds serious, but the Baltimore reporters who broke this story will get an earful from the fans.

    I’m not saying it’s justified for fans to do this. I just know this will happen because the hometown paper revealed a possibly damning story about a hometown star.

  31. Cereal says: Dec 6, 2012 9:16 PM

    Did he pour the bleach or just hold it over them ??

  32. oldirtyman says: Dec 6, 2012 9:16 PM

    Steelers fan don’t be judgemental, we just signed a WR that shot his stupid self in the leg, Suggs is innocent till proven guilty

  33. bigdingyguy says: Dec 6, 2012 9:17 PM

    Not a Ravens fan by any means, nor do I care particularly about Suggs, but I find it disgusting that a sports news outlet is jumping on a non-story, demonizing the guy without due-process.

    The allegations are horrifying, but if I am reading the story right, the police chose not to investigate. Most likely means there is nothing to them, and his weapons should be returned to him very shortly.

  34. mattamp says: Dec 6, 2012 9:20 PM

    What’s the problem here? At least he didn’t murder 2 people, destroy the evidence and rat out his friends.

  35. pgh15212 says: Dec 6, 2012 9:23 PM


    I would rather be tebowed than cundiffed. The steelers will also be playing more games this season…book it

  36. jdmcmill says: Dec 6, 2012 9:26 PM

    You are all idiots!!! You should know the biased family laws in MD for making retarded statements. This is standard procedure and has no weight on the character of the individual. Just because some douche bag in KC thought it was a good idea to off his GF we are quick to judge and even more quick to report a non-story that is suddenly a story….

  37. hines86for6 says: Dec 6, 2012 9:48 PM


    Who the hell is R2D2?

    (other than the most CLUTCH movie character of all time)

  38. redstar504 says: Dec 6, 2012 10:35 PM

    That’s pretty sad. I know he is going thru a lot right now with the injury and fighting with your girl is one thing but involving the kid is wrong

  39. gbpbacker84 says: Dec 6, 2012 10:36 PM

    jdmcmill, so the child’s mother just made up some random story about bleach being held over her and her son? Where there’s smoke there is usually fire, Suggs is just another bully who thinks the rules don’t apply to him and can dominate and control a woman into doing what he wants. You are pathetic.

  40. tylergreever says: Dec 6, 2012 10:53 PM

    Never ceases to amaze me how much true ignorance is displayed in the comments section

  41. tjproconit says: Dec 6, 2012 11:09 PM

    FYI, in the state of MD, any domestic dispute allegation requires ALL parties to turnover all weapons. It’s not because of who he is, or that he is a danger to his wife and children, it’s just state law. My brother-in-law had to do the same thing last year.

  42. Steeley McBeam says: Dec 7, 2012 12:15 AM

    As the nest burns…

  43. dr45acp says: Dec 7, 2012 12:18 AM

    Law Enforcement stepped in & did the right thing…if & when the couple resolve their issues,he’ll be able to request his firearms to be returned to him….

    Does it matter? The threat of abuse is still abuse.

  45. TheWizard says: Dec 7, 2012 5:12 AM

    Everything’s ok now. He’ll become totally non-violent now that he’s surrendered the evil guns.

  46. jharmon64 says: Dec 7, 2012 6:50 AM

    “All I can tell you is that he’s in rightful and lawful possession of the guns but turned them over pursuant to the requirements of the law.”

    Please explain.

  47. footballfan says: Dec 7, 2012 7:58 AM

    I’m pretty sure that anytime anyone is accused of domestic violence they must surrender all firearms until the case is decided. If he is actually convicted of a violent crime he will never get them back. I give Suggs credit for surrendering the firearms as he is supposed to.

  48. karla36 says: Dec 7, 2012 7:58 AM

    @steel420: Is it hard for you to cheer for Harrison or Pig Ben?!

  49. reed20fence says: Dec 7, 2012 8:10 AM

    I would hope that any charge of domestic violence against any player on the Ravens is grounds for cutting that player immediately.

    Proof is important, but if proven, there’s no room, I would hope, on the team that I love, for any man that would raise a finger against a woman or child (disciplining a child is something different and a fine line separates the two).

    Cmon Ravens fans! Domestic violence isn’t some football statistic we can spin for our tribal purposes.

  50. lolo376 says: Dec 7, 2012 8:27 AM

    Roid rage?!

  51. lovefootball4life says: Dec 7, 2012 12:46 PM

    Read the linked article. You will discover it is over a recent custody dispute filed in November. Custody, as is who gets the kids. The alleged bleach incident was in a 2009 court order than was rescinded one month later by the woman, along with her $70M lawsuit against Suggs while they tried to work out their issues.

    Clearly there is a relationship issue here but I think this is a case where we are trying to make more out of it.

  52. erika29 says: Dec 7, 2012 8:39 PM

    Where is Suggs’ suspension from the league? Other players have been disciplined based on allegations and unfounded accusations, so why not Suggs?
