In June, former NFL cornerback Lito Sheppard accused former NFL wide receiver Jabar Gaffney of doing $14,000 of damage to his car by slashing the tires and pouring a contaminant in the gas tank while Sheppard was dining at a restaurant.

Gaffney denied Sheppard’s claim, which was made after watching surveillance video of the parking lot, but it seems authorities in Jacksonville feel otherwise. WJXT reports that a felony criminal mischief warrant has been issued for Gaffney’s arrest in relation to the incident.

Sheppard also recently sought a restraining order against Gaffney, who was Sheppard’s teammate in high school and at the University of Florida. In the petition for the order, Sheppard said Gaffney has been harassing him for years due to what Sheppard says is a false claim that he had an affair with Gaffney’s wife.

Gaffney’s attorney said at the time the story broke that his client has not seen Sheppard in three years and that Gaffney maintained he had nothing to do with vandalizing Sheppard’s car when reached for comment about the restraining order.

    The way I view cheating spouses, there are three people at fault: The husband for not supplying some psychological of physical need of the wife, the wife for not being committed to the marriage 100%, and the dude poking her for stepping in someone else’s yard. In no particular order.

    its always the cheating spouses fault! sure they guy if their friends or whatever shouldn’t cross the unwritten rules to the game but sometimes guys don’t play the game fair so in actually they have no loyalty to you but the spouse on the other hand does

  6. If a guy is going to those lengths to enact revenge then I think it’s a safe bet he KNOWS the other guy was with his wife. That said, I realize there is a betrayal factor with the other guy being your friend but you HAVE to blame the wife. Nothing happens unless she allows it. Her mistake, her responsibility.

    No, if a guy is going to those lengths to enact revenge then I think it’s a safe bet he has mental issues. IF the wife cheated, she’s to blame for cheating. But if the husband takes revenge, he is to blame for that, not her.

    Once again you’ve illustrated for us just how different things are on Planet Willy.

  9. Sometimes out of spite a woman will spit out a lie like this during an argument just to twist the knife. The damage can’t be undone

    It is sad that people will not admit the reality, the case studies,(15 year long Federal) and the pure number of stories here.. Turn away from the truth, ignore the facts because it calls some out. The way to STOP these stories or at east slow them down is ban people with a violent/Sexual/ theft record from playing in this League. Make this a kid friendly sport again with REAL heroes no matter what their skin is.

    What about a record for drugs? Lets be real. And you know i am right.
    If the league banned all those with a violent/sexual/theft/drugs record, then it will flip the demographics 100%, and will be a much slower league

  12. My husband cheated on me, and if that wasn’t bad enough, with my friend who was pretending to be my friend while behind my back lying to him, manipulating him to take him. He was stupid enough to fall for it but if you really knew her you’d know-she’s so unstable that he deserves exactly what he has now. I’m just getting the popcorn because that’s one heck of a thriller coming up! But if all of that wasn’t bad enough, we all work together and the whole office knew before me.

    Cheating is never ok. No matter what the problems may be. The cheaters are the only one to blame for that action. Once the line is crossed there is never any way to truly fix a marriage. It’s disgusting to do and even worse when that unwritten line is broken. However, I believe that once the anger and hurt subside you find that you’re so better off bc what they are was nothing truly good for you. Who they are is pathetic in all aspects of life. If capable of that then truly they don’t deserve any happiness and ha together that’s where they are now….miserable with each other and in their lives. You don’t have to do what he did. You can just wait…what goes around comes around and they have karma to deal with, so no need for any action on your part but to celebrate that he’s not your problem anymore.

    Perhaps so….But it would be one I’d be proud to have my Son call a player his Hero..

    ABSOLUTELY!

  15. Plenty of players in the NFL your son and yourself could be proud of. Or you know there are other people to admire outside of the sports world. Anyways to get up in arms about a random, failed NFL player getting arrested seems just odd.

    Thank you. What happened to accountability? Women cheat, men cheat. Jabar needs to put on his big boy pants and move on. If it wasn’t Lito it would’ve been someone else.

  17. The pain is crushing no doubt, especially when it’s with your friend to boot. Nothing is more devastating or scummy on their part. But get divorced and then you heal and find others have been attracted to you that you never even knew were. A good relationship is next up and your happiness is the best revenge…after all look at what they got in the end lol. No need to go crazy even when their actions made you feel it at times. Although I can see how it can happen….it def is not easy to deal with at all. Sad some people can be so selfish and rotten at their core.
