A woman has filed a $70 million lawsuit in Baltimore against Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs, claiming he is the father of her two children and assaulted her multiple times.
Suggs said at practice Thursday that he has nothing to hide, but he was not able to discuss the case yet.
Candace Williams, 26, is seeking $50 million in punitive damages and $20 million in compensatory damages from the three-time Pro Bowl pass rusher. She filed a separate complaint seeking custody of the children.
Williams is also seeking a restraining order against Suggs, who she said knocked her down and poured bleach on her and their son.
“I can’t talk about all that right now,” Suggs said at the Ravens’ training complex. “You know I’ve always been fair. When I can address it, I will. I really have nothing to hide. As bad as I want to talk about it right now, I can’t.”
Suggs has been sidelined since hurting his knee in a game against Cleveland on Nov. 16. He wouldn’t say whether he planned to attend a hearing today on the motion for a restraining order.
Williams alleges Suggs broke her nose during a Nov. 3 incident and threatened to kill her. On Nov. 29, she said he threatened to drown her with bleach and poured bleach on her “entire body as she was forced to stay on the ground.”
A district court judge noted that she had a laceration on her chest when he granted her a temporary restraining order against Suggs that requires him to stay away from Williams and vacate their residence.
Williams claimed that Suggs has “irrational and violent tendencies.”
Suggs hasn’t been charged with a crime, and there’s no record of emergency calls to his Windsor Mill home.
Titans’ Young has ‘setback’
Vince Young aggravated his right knee and left practice early in what Tennessee coach Jeff Fisher called a “setback.”
Young had just stepped back and thrown a pass when he started walking to the sideline and laid down on the ground. A trainer and a doctor checked out his knee. They wrapped ice around his knee, then he left practice early, walking out of the indoor practice field gingerly.
The quarterback hurt his knee in last week’s 27-17 loss at Indianapolis.
