Greg Hardy given no contact order, AA meetings, $17K bond
Greg Hardy appeared in court on Wednesday and was given a $17,000 bond and told to go to AA meetings as well as have no contact with the alleged victim.
Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy was arrested early Tuesday morning on a domestic assault charge in Charlotte. He spent the night in jail (not uncommon in domestic incidents; it's called a "cooling off period") and appeared in court on Wednesday morning.
The Mecklenburg County judge handed Hardy a $17,000 bond along with several other requirements.
Hardy is expected to be released later Wednesday.
The victim in the case was identified as 24-year-old Nicole Holder, who claimed she had a previous relationship with Hardy.
The two parties contest the facts of the incident:
Victim's attorney said that Hardy's friend held her down while Hardy called 911.— Joe Person (@josephperson) May 14, 2014
Chris Fialko, Hardy atty, says alleged victim was attacking Hardy and his friend and wouldn't leave Hardy's apartment.— Joe Person (@josephperson) May 14, 2014
Hardy was also ordered to have no contact with the victim; the victim's attorney filed a protective order against Hardy as well.
Additionally, Hardy was ordered to attend three AA meetings because there was alcohol involved in the incident.
