Facebook Romance Lands Falcons OT In Cuffs

So, about that Internet thing - pretty cool, huh? You can do a lot with it, I hear. You can buy records, rent videotapes, watch remastered episodes of “ALF” - in other words, you can do ANYTHING on the Internet. It’s really revolutionized the way we communicate with friends, fans, and loved ones. In short, the Internet is awesome. Of course, there’s also a dark side to the internet, especially for idiots. There are people who forget that anything you post on the internet is printed in (metaphorical!) stone, forever for everyone to see.

Atlanta Falcons OT Quinn Ojinnaka

So if you’re cheating on your wife with a Facebook friend, like Atlanta Falcons Quinn Ojinnaka allegedly may have been, and you post little love notes on the internet, someone might end up seeing them. Like your wife. For the modern adulterer, there are many paths to choose when handling such a situation. Beating up your wife, however, is not a recommended course of action. Guess which path Ojinnaka took?

Unfortunately, the GWINNETT DAILY POST reports that when Ojinnaka, a 6′6″ offensive tackle, was confronted by his wife with Facebook proof of infidelity, he went from mere cheating d-bag to lowlife wifebeater:

The 6-foot, 6-inch offensive tackle told police he’d settled down to watch the Cleveland-Orlando NBA playoff game about 8 p.m. when his wife approached him about the online acquaintance. When he ignored her, she unplugged the television to get his attention, and he became angry, the police report says. The couple’s accounts of what happened from that point differ.

Ojinnaka claims he “grabbed her and put her outside” twice, until she went for a walk. The argument later continued upstairs, where he said his wife tried to stab him with a pen, which prompted him to spit in her face, the report says. Ojinnaka’s wife, Ebony, told police her husband threw her on some stairs, then tossed her out of the house twice. She claims he verbally assaulted her and grabbed her by the neck before spitting in her face, the reports says.

Hitting a woman is never, ever OK here in the world of normal people. Sure, it’s a he-said she-said situation, and we should wait for the facts (charges dropped) to come out. But Facebook? Really, Quinn? You know that wasn’t going to end well - not when thousands of Facebook friends can watch your love life unfold in real time. Next time, stick to Adultfriendfinder.com.
