Ra’Shede Hageman facing domestic violence charges

NEW ORLEANS, LA - OCTOBER 15:  Head coach Dan Quinn of the Atlanta Falcons speaks with Ra'Shede Hageman #77 during the fourth quarter of a game against the New Orleans Saints at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on October 15, 2015 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Falcons defensive tackle Ra’Shede Hageman may be in line for league discipline after being charged with three misdemeanors in a domestic violence case this March.

D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that the charges stemmed from an incident with the mother of his child in March. Details of what happened are scarce, but the DeKalb County court system shows that Hageman faces charges of battery family violence, cruelty to children in the third degree and interference with a call for emergency help.

Ledbetter reports that the NFL has been in contact with the team about the charges.

Hageman, a 2014 second-round pick, did not play against the Buccaneers on Sunday. His scratch was attributed to the team’s plan to play a lot of nickel against Tampa.

    Perfect timing, give him the 15 game suspension as previously given to AP but oddly nobody else since? Break out the Commish’s Exempt List that’s specifically designed to cover you Rog when you have no idea what you’re doing. Hmm, or was that just an overreaction to botching the Ray Rice punishment by our idiot commish?

    The Falcons played of lot of something against the Bucs Sunday, but not sure what it was called. In Tampa we call it the Jameis Winston Show.

    One game suspension unless Goodell can figure out a way of falsely accusing him of tampering with footballs then he might get four games.

    Maybe the players should take a stand and show unity for woman who face domestic violence!

    2-4 million woman are abused each year…
    1/2 the men that abuse their partners also abuse their children

    Seems like a worthy cause

    “Hageman faces charges of battery family violence, cruelty to children in the third degree and interference with a call for emergency help.”

    Sounds like another tough guy, so tough.

    It’s probably because of CTE. Am I doing this right?

    Ra’Shede is an absolute nozzle of a human being. I had the misfortune of meeting him when he played in college. He possesses all the qualities of someone who deserves to break rocks for a living and sleep behind bars. He’ll be bounced out of the NFL and you’ll see him wearing blues before too long. I hope only that its not too late and he does something more horrible than this.

    Sounds like a nice guy.

    Isn’t he the same way that killed his girlfriends dog? What a wasted pick this guy is. . .

    As much as I love D1 college and NFL football, there is no way in hell I would ever want my daughter involved with a player. Way too many guys at that level who have no idea how to handle their business off the field.

    Wait you’re a Falcons fan and don’t know about your own players. No he’s not the guy that killed his girlfriend dog.

    Remember…the league has a mandatory 6 game suspension policy for this type heinous behavior.

    Expect a 1 game suspension (non Patriot exemption).

    Yes, I’m a Falcons fan, and an NFL fan in general. No, I cannot keep a mental list of every time some a-hole breaks the law, regardless of what jersey he dons. Shame on me for viewing football as a past time and not the most valuable part of my life…

    trade him to the Giants, then its only a one game suspension

    or to the broncos, then its zero games

    or to the colts or the jets, other no punishment zones.

    No excuse for domestic violence whatsoever, but this guy was abandoned by his mom, adopted in his teens by a couple of attorneys in MN, troubled in HS, but finally got his act together at the U of M. Seemed like a great story till today.

    This happened in March and only now hearing about it ?

    Sorry, I’m a fan of a team that hasn’t been caught in elaborate cheating schemes twice in the last decade.
