Terrell Suggs Reportedly Asked to Surrender Guns Due to Domestic Dispute Case

Alex BallentineFeatured ColumnistDecember 7, 2012

Terrell Suggs was asked to surrender several firearms after a domestic dispute with his girlfriend, according to the Baltimore Sun (h/t ESPN).

According to police, the surrender of the guns stems back from incidents between Suggs and his girlfriend that took place in November.

According to the report, Suggs filed a custody complaint against his girlfriend, Candace Williams, on November 19, and two 911 calls were received at Suggs' address on November 21. Suggs' attorney Warren Alperstein told the Baltimore Sun that Suggs owned the guns legally and gave them up willingly.

The guns were surrendered over to police pursuant to the court order, and they (Suggs and Williams) are resolving their issue... All I can tell you is that he's in rightful and lawful possession of the guns but turned them over pursuant to the requirements of the law.

Neither the Ravens organization nor Suggs was willing to comment on the situation at the time of this story, so it's hard to speculate on any type of punishment that Suggs could face. It would appear that Suggs is cooperating with authorities and working to correct the issues with his girlfriend.

The couple have two children together. In 2009, Williams filed a $70 million lawsuit against Suggs but eventually withdrew it.

Suggs was the 2011 Defensive Player of the Year and has sat out much of the 2012 season due to injuries. In the six games that he has played for the Ravens he has 19 tackles, two sacks and four pass breakups.
