Adrian Wilson allegedly choked wife before domestic violence arrest


Adrian Wilson allegedly choked wife before domestic violence arrest

Disturbing new details have emerged about the domestic incident that led to the June 1 arrest of former NFL star and executive Adrian Wilson. 

Scottsdale Police Department documents obtained by TMZ on Wednesday painted a picture that alleged Wilson threatened to kill himself after breaking objects in his home following a heated argument with his wife while the couple’s children were in their Arizona house. 

Police said in the report that Wilson’s wife, Alicia, alleged that the situation started when she discovered he was having an affair and the ex-Cardinals defensive back found legal separation paperwork that she started filling out and had left in the guest house Wilson was staying in.

Wilson, 44, then allegedly confronted her in her bedroom, where the situation took a more severe turn, according to the documents viewed by TMZ. 

Alicia claimed that Wilson threw and broke multiple objects and that the former NFL safety put his hands on her — choking her at one point — and called her a “liar,” a “bitch” and a “whore” during the confrontation. 

Wilson’s wife said she became afraid when Wilson took a handgun from a safe. 

The report stated that she told Wilson that their kids had been in the home, but that didn’t deter him and he told her “F–k those kids.”

Alicia fled the home, and Wilson eventually left the residence as well, when he then started calling people to tell them he was planning to kill himself.

He was taken into custody by local police after returning to the Scottsdale home, and after speaking with authorities, he admitted to destroying items inside the bedroom.

He also acknowledged grabbing the firearm from the safe. 

Wilson denied that he ever was physical with his wife during the altercation, according to TMZ. 

He was charged with with intentional assault causing physical injury, damaging property between $250 and $2,000 and disorderly conduct-disruptive behavior or fighting, all of which are misdemeanors.

His next court date is set for July 16 when he has a virtual case management conference.

Wilson played 12 years in the NFL for the Cardinals, and after taking a scouting role with Arizona in 2015, he landed the position of vice president of player personnel for the Panthers in 2023.

Wilson left that role and the Panthers confirmed in a statement that he would “not continue in his position,” though they did not say if the decision had anything to do with the June 1 domestic incident.
