FORMER Dallas Cowboy Damien Wilson was arrested last week in Frisco, Texas, after his ex-girlfriend claimed he had threatened to kill her, police say.
The Carolina Panthers linebacker’s ex-girlfriend Ryan Sokolosky alleged that Wilson threatened to kill her with a tire iron and that he also destroyed her laptop after they broke up.
Wilson’s attorney, Toby Shook, has denied any assault allegations.
“Damien Wilson did not commit any type of assault,” Shook said.
“We look forward to all the facts coming out so his name can be cleared.”
Sokolosky told the Dallas News that she and Wilson had started their on-and-off-again relationship in March of 2020.
Sokolosky said that on Friday, she found Wilson had been cheating on her with another woman and broke up with him.
After breaking up with him, Sokolosky allegedly returned home with her friend that night to find that her apartment’s patio was damaged — which she believed had been done by Wilson.
She claimed that as she and her friend retrieved Sokolosky’s dogs and went back to her car, Wilson emerged from the bushes with a tire iron and threatened to kill Sokolosky.
She said in her interview that Wilson then chased Sokolosky’s friend into the apartment and came out with a blanket, claiming that the woman’s cat was inside of the blanket.
“I was screaming like I’m being skinned alive,” Sokolosky said.
He then allegedly threw the blanket to the ground, when Sokolosky realized that it hadn’t been her pet inside of the blanket, but her laptop — leaving it destroyed.
Sokolosky said that she has obtained a protective order against Wilson, who was signed just last month by the Panthers.
She explained that she spoke out in an interview because she believes that Wilson needs to be suspended from the League.
“He thinks all of it’s a joke because he’s rich and thinks he’s going to get out of everything,” she said.
The Panthers have not commented on the incident.
Young Gazzate has reached out to Ryan Sokolosky for comment.
