It’s widely known that Packers defensive lineman Letroy Guion faced drug and gun charges earlier this year. It’s now known, thanks to a report from Michael Cohen and John Diedrich of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, that Guion previously faced domestic violence charges, too.
According to Cohen and Diedrich, Guion has been charged in connection with a stalking allegation and a pair of domestic violence incidents that resulted in three counts of battery. He once was accused of hitting the mother of his child in the jaw.
In two of those cases, the charges were dropped. In the other, Guion paid restitution in order to avoid additional consequences.
The domestic incidents occurred between 2011 and 2013, when Guion played for the Vikings. The incidents, according to Cohen and Diedrich, were publicly unreported and in turn unnoticed.
The real question is whether Guion reported the incidents to the Vikings or to the NFL. Although the league had no comment in connection with the Journal Sentinel report, the NFL could choose to say plenty if it turns out that multiple legal incidents involving Guion had never been properly disclosed by the player to his team or the league office.
