Former NFL player Darron Lee issued arrest warrant

 June 29, 2023

Former first-round New York Jets pick Darron Lee has been given an arrest warrant after missing a court date.

Lee was expected to appear on charges related to domestic violence and assault that reportedly occurred in April.

The incident

"Lee, 28, was arrested in Ohio in April and was accused of beating both his own mother and the mother of his son," the New York Post reported.

"The mother of Lee’s child called Dublin, Ohio police in April to report the ex-Jet linebacker was assaulting his mother. The woman told police she was downstairs and heard screaming from the upstairs floor, and when she went to check it out she saw Lee standing over his mother with a closed fist," it added.

Past issues

"While investigating this incident, police learned of a separate incident from Oct. 17, 2022, involving the other woman," 10TV News reported.

"Court records state the woman told authorities the two had an argument where Lee had accused her of cheating on him," it added. "While lying on a bed, the woman said Lee got on top of her and placed his hand on her neck. She said he threatened to kill her and squeezed her throat when she said she couldn’t breathe for approximately three seconds."

His career

"Darron Lee was drafted by the Jets as the 20th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft," Bro Bible reported.

"He had an initial promising start to his professional career, with 36 starts during his three seasons with the Jets. However, his time with the team was marred by inconsistency and he ultimately didn’t live to expectations," it added.

Lee was a member of Ohio State's 2014 national championship team who played for the Jets, Chiefs and Bills.

He was last signed by the Las Vegas Raiders in 2021 but was released from the team before the season began.

The latest legal concern could end with Lee spending time in jail as he missed a key court date in an important case.
