Via AP News:
Former Cincinnati Bengals defensive end Jonathan Fanene faces charges he used a pipe, golf club and broom handle to assault his wife and his sister over allegations he had an extramarital affair while on a trip to Hawaii, according to court documents filed this week.
Fanene has been charged in the district court of American Samoa with eight felonies, including kidnapping and assault, and five misdemeanors. He has been released on $100,000 bail and will appear in court next week.
In addition to the arrest, the former Bengals seventh-round draft pick lost his job as the director of the American Samoa Department of Youth and Women’s Affairs.
Assaulting women with objects probably isn’t the best way to deny cheating allegations.
