NFL Star Damon Arnett Allegedly Injured a Woman: 2nd Raiders Player To Face Legal Woes This Week [DETAILS]
The National Football League's Las Vegas Raiders is facing another controversy after Henry Ruggs III's accident which killed a woman and a dog as another player, Damon Arnette, is currently facing a lawsuit from a woman who alleged that she got injured in a violent car crash last year.
According to the lawsuit obtained by TMZ Sports, the athlete reportedly slammed into the woman's car with his vehicle, which happened on October 14 last year at around 7:29 a.m. in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The alleged victim claims that the Raiders star thought he missed his turn while on his way into the Raiders' facility, so he swerved his vehicle at a speed of 65 miles per hour to make the right turn.
This caused Arnette's vehicle to crash into the woman's car, which left it wrecked violently.
After the said incident, the athlete reportedly left the crash scene illegally and went inside the headquarters, which is a few feet away from the scene.
The woman experienced severe injuries such as head trauma, shoulder, neck, and back pain. The event also took a toll on the woman's mental health as she suffered depression and panic attacks.
All-in-all the total damage that the woman got after the alleged accident was over $92,000.
Police Records Show Damon Arnette Did Not Illegally Leave The Scene
Per police records, Arnette did not illegally leave the scene as he was cited for the incident. In the incident report, authorities noted that the player admitted his wrongdoings, especially making the right turn unsafe for other cars.
Arnette also stayed in the scene long enough to help the woman. He did leave the scene a few moments after to attend a meeting at work, but a friend of his stayed and provided his contact to police officials.
But, authorities are hitting back, saying the friend did not provide any contact of the Raiders star, and he did try to take the fall for Arnette.
Cops later went inside the Raiders' headquarters to locate the player to deal with his actions.
