And the whole thing was captured on video, of course.
Sad story here. Yesterday a pretty feel-good story went viral about American hero Megan Welter, an Arizona Cardinals cheerleader who spent a 16-month tour in Iraq. Today it comes to light that she was arrested on July 20 for allegedly assaulting her boyfriend. The video features her screaming "WHO IS SHE" and asking for his phone. It's pretty effed up:
The whole thing gets even more messy from there... Via AZ Family:
Welter reportedly told officers her boyfriend attacked her first, pushing her and even choking her. According to the police report, however, there were no marks on her — no bumps or bruises, no signs that she had been hit or strangled as she claimed.
When Welter called 911, she told the operator that her boyfriend was a “professional fighter” and had “smashed [her] head into tile” and had put her in what she described as a “choke hold with his legs.”
Ugh all around.
