Default Browns running back allegedly threw wife out door

Posted: Friday May 26, 2006 1:05PM; Updated: Friday May 26, 2006 3:11PM

LITTLETON, Colo. (AP) -- A sheriff's report alleges Cleveland Browns running back Reuben Droughns threw his wife out the door of their home after she said she wanted a divorce.

Droughns, 27, was released on $2,500 bail Thursday on one count of assault and two counts of harassment. He surrendered to police the day before and spent the night in jail.

The arrest report said Kellie Droughns' right arm was hurt in the May 12 incident at the home in the south Denver suburb of Centennial. The report said she called her mother in Texas, who then called the sheriff's department.

Droughns' attorney, Harvey Steinberg, did not immediately return a call Friday.

Kellie Droughns had no listed phone number. Her name is redacted in the report but she has been publicly identified as Droughns' wife.

The arrest report said the couple were arguing when he "grabbed (her) and threw her to the ground. She got up and Reuben grabbed her by the waist, carried her to the bed and threw her on the bed."

That was when she told Droughns she wanted a divorce, the report said.

Droughns then carried her on his shoulders to the house's front door, where she flung her arms out in an attempt to avoid being thrown out, the document said. Droughns threw her outside, closed and locked the door, the report said.

He eventually let her back in, but then left the house with his wife's wedding ring, her credit cards and cash, the report said.

The report said a child lives in the home with the couple but did not say whether the child was present at the time.

Droughns faces six to 18 months in jail if convicted of assault and up to six months in jail if convicted of harassment. Bail conditions allow him to leave the state before his next court appearance on July 6, district attorney's spokeswoman Kathleen Walsh said.

Browns officials have said in a statement they are aware of the case and were taking it seriously, but had no other comment. His agent has not returned calls.

Droughns, who played for the Denver Broncos until a 2005 trade, signed a three-year extension with the Browns this year. He rushed for 1,232 yards and two touchdowns on 309 carries last season.

Earlier this month, a jury acquitted Droughns of drunken driving charges, finding he was not impaired by alcohol when a State Highway Patrol trooper stopped him Nov. 1 in Medina in northeast Ohio.

his wife has come out and said she doesnt want to file charges. i know in some states once a domestic violence report is made it becomes the states call to file charges, not the "victim". this combats all those who cry wolf and waste the cops and the states time, only to not follow through on their claim. i dont know how this works in colorado. he could either walk, or still be nailed despite what his wife wants.

Cool Re: Browns running back allegedly threw wife out door

If this even goes to court he will just issue an apology, in true celebrity form, and get off.


But then again...........if I were a Brownie I would probably be so depressed, because I SUCK so much, that I would more than likely be a malcontent with multiple run-ins with the law also.
