Chris Owens Accused Of Tearing Up Ex-Girlfriend's Apartment, According To Report

Atlanta Falcons CB Christopher Owens has been accused by an ex-girlfriend of trashing her apartment Sunday night and destroying valuables, according to a TMZ report. Owens is reportedly accused of dousing LaTia Terry's clothes and jewelry with bleach, putting holes in a wall and damaging a laptop and crib.

According to the story, Owens' rampage was due to a fight over custody of the former couple's nine-month-old child.

Owens hasn't been arrested, though Terry claimed to police the allegedly destroyed items were worth about $15,000 and has filed a restraining order.

If any of this is true, it would be the first trouble Owens has made since being drafted as a third-round selection out of San Jose State. He's been a reasonably popular Falcons defender, considering his depth chart status, and would be the first Falcons draft pick of the Thomas Dimitroff era to land in any serious trouble.
