Melissa Pittman Accusations
There were a lot of domestic violence accusations from Mellisa Pittman against her ex-husband, Michael Pittman Senior, in the past.
The 2014 reports stated that the former NFL athlete faced charges for allegedly assaulting his wife in Torrance three years ago. A Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office filed a complaint in July at the Torrance courthouse. The charges were a corporal injury to spouse/cohabitant/child's parent.
The event occurred on 9 June 2011 at 2900 block of 235th Street. Michael willingly and unlawfully inflicted injury, resulting in a traumatic condition upon his wife. Torrance police Sargent Robert Watt did say that it began with a verbal altercation that turned physical.
The police didn't reveal the exact details of the incident. Following that, they had a warrant for Michael's arrest in 2011 but didn't take him into custody immediately. Records show that he got arrested on the 24th of April.
Three years after that event, he appeared before the Torrance Superior Court, but Judge Thomas Sokolov rescheduled the proceedings to 31 October.
However, this wasn't the first time for the former athlete.
Michael faced a lot of domestic violence allegations throughout his playing career. He rammed his Hummer into a Mercedes-Benz in which Melissa, his then 2-year-old son and babysitter Kristina Hegland, were inside. The event took place near his Phoenix home. The Arizona prosecutors then indicted him on aggravated assault charges.
As for the reports, it all happened over a disagreement on taking the child to the training camp of Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He then pleaded guilty to endangerment charges and the assault, resulting in the dropping of domestic violence charges. As a consequence, the NFL banned him for three games next year.
He received a sentence of 30 days imprisonment from a Maricopa County Superior Court judge. However, law enforcement released him after 14 days.
Besides that, the NFL suspended him from one game during his time in Arizona Cardinals in 2001. The punishment was to address his misdemeanor conviction in a domestic violence case.
Furthermore, Melissa accused him of 30 to 40 previous domestic violence situations that never got reported.
