Arizona Cardinals’ Jonathan Dwyer released from jail
Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer was released from the Fouth Avenue Jail in Phoenix just before 5:00 a.m. Thursday morning, about 12 hours after he was arrested on charges of aggravated assault against his wife and 18-month-old son.
The two incidents took play on July 21-22. Police Sgt. Trent Crump said Wednesday both were physical altercations. In the first, Kayla sustained a fracture. In the second incident, Dwyer allegedly threw a shoe at the couple’s 18-month-old son.
Dwyer’s wife and child left Arizona shortly after the incidents.
The 25-year-old player posted a cash bond of $25,000.
While leaving the facility, a media member asked Dwyer if he had thrown a shoe at his young child. “I would never hurt my son,” he replied.
When asked if he would play football again, Dwyer responded simply “I will.”
Dwyer was deactivated from team activities by the Cardinals Wednesday, just four days before their home game against the San Francisco 49ers at University of Phoenix Stadium.
