Tampa Bay linebacker Geno Hayes, a rookie 6th round pick last season was stabbed him in the head with a pair of scissors and in the neck with a knife, by his girlfriend, according to Hillsborough County deputies
Hayes was taken to a hospital by a friend, and he was treated and released.
Deputies arrested 19-year-old Shevelle Bagley at 4:30 p.m. Saturday, she was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. Shevelle has since been released on $25,000 bail.
According to Hillsborough County sheriff's spokeswoman Debbie Carter, the incident began with an argument Saturday, and Bagley grabbed a pair of scissors, stabbing Hayes and causing a superficial wound to Hayes' head, Carter said. Hayes got the scissors away from Bagley. Then Bagley "grabbed a knife and stabbed him in the neck".
Hayes is expected to compete for a starting position this off season for the Bucs after the former starter Derrick Brooks was released last month. No word yet, on whether these injuries will affect his chances.
