Detroit Lions safety Tavon Wilson denies he punched a former girlfriend during an altercation last year, according to TMZ.

Per TMZ, Alanda Jackson, the mother of Wilson’s 3-year-old, has filed suit against Wilson, alleging that he broke her nose during the melee. Jackson got into a verbal altercation with Wilson’s current girlfriend at a nightclub in Washington, D.C., on May 14, 2016. Jackson accuses Wilson of grabbing her, throwing her to the ground and punching her in the face. Jackson said a female friend was stabbed by someone in Wilson’s entourage, and both women were hospitalized.

Jackson was arrested, TMZ reports, with Wilson’s current girlfriend, Simone Leach, claiming she was the victim. Jackson seeks more than $2.5 million, and Wilson also faces a suit from the other alleged victim. Wilson has asked a judge to dismiss both suits.

The Lions released a statement: “We are aware of the report regarding Tavon Wilson. We have spoken to Tavon, and we have also notified the league office of this matter. Due to the personal nature of this situation, we will have no additional comment at this time.”

  1. The arrest tracker needs to be reinstated on this site! Wow its amazing how someone can be so blessed and such an idiot at the same time.

  2. vicks – Wilson wasn’t arrested. He’s being charged with a civil suit. Read the article bud.

    Additionally, based on all police accounts, she’s going to have a lot of work to do proving Tavon was the aggressor, the one that hit her, or the one that hurt her friend.

    Additionally, there’s apparently video of the incident that has shown that Alanda attacked Tavon’s girlfriend at the time.

    Additionally, Alanda has been caught, in court, lying before.

    This is far from a slam dunk case for her in court. This is a night club. There are cameras. IF he really did hit her, then he would have been arrested as the police no doubt obtained all footage from the night club.
