Fab Melo allegedly a jealous, abusive boyfriend

This Fab Melo ordeal is getting ugly quickly. In fact, it's been allegedly ugly and unseemly and inappropriate for awhile.

That's because the Syracuse sophomore center's unidentified girlfriend told police that Melo has been abusive toward her "four or five" times since the two began an intimate relationship in October.

Melo was arrained in court Wednesday morning due to an incident wherein he became violent and broke the turning signal in his girlfriend's car. After obtaining the police report, the Post-Standard has more details, per the girlfriend's account.

On Monday, the 22-year-old woman fled Melo’s Slocum Heights apartment after Melo became jealous, first of a phone call and then of males who had posted comments on her Facebook wall.

On Tuesday, she was escorted to the Syracuse police’s Domestic Violence Unit by an assistant district attorney, where detectives interviewed her. She told them that coming to the police was “her last resort,” records state.

The details get worse from there. Melo looked at her Facebook wall (Facebook is the worst thing to ever happen to relationships), saw some comments from other males he didn't approve of, then smashed his computer in anger. Naturally.

According to the girl's statement, then there was a fight in the house and she attempted to leave after sequestering herself for some time in Melo's bathroom. Before getting away in her car, Melo threw dirt on her, bloodied his hand somehow, and then reached into her car and ripped off her turn signal.

While doing this, his blood smeared on his girlfriend's shirt. That shirt is now being held as evidence. Melo apparently told her, "Here, you want my blood?" before the incident ended. How dramatic and romantic. Goodness gracious what an unnecessary catastrophe.

The relationship ended in May -- and then the two got back together recently. We've all either been a part of something like this or had a close friend or two get sucked into a vortex of it's-done/no-it's-not-done relationship that tailspins until its ultimate, inevitable, ugly end. That scene usually reaches a head outside of a party between the hours of 1 and 4 a.m. Crying and cursing tags alongside a feeling of defeated and apathetic acceptance. A sad but crucial stage in the evolution of dating.

It's very clear that Melo has the same issue so many hot-blooded college-age men and women fall victim to: insufferable, crippling jealousy. That's still not reason to ever, ever get violent with a woman. And now Melo's seemingly done too much and put himself and his reputation in a very bad spot.

As of now his status on the team isn't in question. Should it be? We're talking about a player allegedly abusing his girlfriend. Serious character issues -- and Melo wasn't a difference-maker last season. Sadly, college athletes have remained on teams for doing worse, sometimes without discipline. Jim Boeheim will let the law take its course before he does anything, most likely. Melo will appear in Syracuse court June 14.

Honestly, who would want to date, sleep with and want to deal with a 7'0" tall man?

I don't even see how he has a girlfriend considering he's a 7'0", ugly ass, Brazillian that did absolutely nothing on the basketball court last year. The way he walks and runs also makes people geek too. How he found a girlfriend, especially one that goes to school at Syracuse University... nobody knows.

is there anyone out there other than myself who wonders if is lee3022 is Dr. Phil? i felt like i was in therapy when i read his post...in all fairness though he is on the right track.
why in the world is it that melo cannot control himself when he gets mad? broke his own computer, then her car? those anger management issues will someday lead to violence on a human being as opposed to a computer or automobile. whats next? my guess is someones face...

Overhyped underachievers sometimes find themselves in these situations.  He will be ordered into anger management counseling and that will be the end of it.  Unless of course the next girlfriend has the nerve to be approached by another guy while his basketball future continues to look bleak.  Better concentrate on keeping his cool and getting an education or the next incident may be much worse.

This p.o.s. needs his scholarship revoked and kicked out of school.

On thes post I have read the girl is a slut and melo is a thug to the point he is already guilty.

I think we need more information before we execute Melo or the Girlfriend.  Because all I read is they had an argument and melo broke the turn signal.  

It appears Melo has an anger issues...issues that appear to be within reach of controling through counseling.  He needs entrance into therapy.     

So far I am siding on he was P.O.'d and lost his mind enough to break the turn signal and that is all.  That will cost him for sure.  But right now I find kicking him out of school a lot over the top.  

These two need to end their relationship and get on with their lives.   But until someone shows me where he ever beat this girl up, at this point it was an argument. 

Till then.....There is nothing else to see here....move along.

mickinva, I know you thought you were being cute and clever, and all satirical and stuff.....but all you came off to the real world was a moron who obviously is too stupid to see underlying symptoms and inevitable results.  This p.o.s. needs his scholarship revoked and kicked out of school.
