On Wednesday morning Greg Hardy -- arrested Tuesday for assault and kept in jail overnight -- appeared in front of a judge in Charlotte. Hardy was given $17,000 bond, ordered to attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and told to have no contact with the alleged victim, Nicole Holder.
Holder filed a Complaint and Motion for Domestic Violence Protective Order, a copy of which was obtained by the Charlotte Observer.
In that document are Holder's alleged version of the facts from late Monday night/early Tuesday morning:
On May 13, 2014 Greg Hardy attacked me in his apartment. Hardy picked me up and threw me in the tile tub area of his bathroom. I have bruises from head to toe, including head, neck, back, shoulders, arms, legs elbow and feet. Hardy pulled me from the tub by my hair, screaming at me that he was going to kill me, break my arms and other threats that I completely believe. He drug me across the bathroom and out into the bedroom. Hardy choked me with both hands around my throat while I was lying on the floor. Hardy picked me up over his head and threw me onto a couch covered in assault rifles and/or shotguns. I landed on those weapons. Hardy bragged that all the assault rifles were loaded. Landing on those weapons bruised my neck and my back. Hardy screamed for his 'administrative assistant' (Sammy Curtis) to come into the room and hold me down. Curtis came into the room, grabbed me from behind and held me down. Hardy and Curtis then took me into the living room area. I wasn't nearly strong or fast enough to escape. I begged them to let me go & I wouldn't tell anyone what he did. They took me out into the hall, pushed me down & went back inside the apartment. I crawled to the elevator and ran into [Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department].
Hardy's attorney (and therefore Hardy) allege a different way in which things occurred.

Additionally in the motion, Holder alleges Hardy "has approximately 25-30 firearms. AK-47's, automatic looking weapons, shotguns, rifles and pistols. Some are permitted and some are not. Hardy has a very large gun safe at his residence in South Charlotte."
She also alleges "as part of the assault, [Hardy] threatened to shoot me if I went to the media or reported his assaults to anyone."
