The 911 call Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy made during his domestic dispute with his girlfriend paints a different picture of the incident that landed him in jail.
The transcript of the recording, provided by Black and Blue Review (audio at the link), details Hardy’s version of events.
At one point early in the call, Hardy made it clear his girlfriend (who is not 6-foot-4 and 290 pounds) was the aggressor, and was trying to enter his apartment and hit him with her shoe.
“She’s hit me in the face twice,” he said. “I’m trying to stay away from her. Can you please send somebody to help me? . . .
“I don’t need medic. She hit me in the face. I’m not bleeding or anything, it’s a little swollen, but I’m fine.”
The call has the clear sounds of the kind of altercation you expect at 4:18 a.m., when both parties have been drinking. But it paints a different picture than his girlfriend’s attorney painted in court documents, saying Hardy pushed her onto a bed full of loaded guns.
There was another 911 call from the concierge in his downtown condo building, which including a woman yelling that she heard the incident, and the the woman was being beaten.
