Theballerlife.com has learned that NFL star Terrell Suggs and his fiancee’, Candace Williams, finally reached an agreement Tuesday morning in the Baltimore County Circuit Court regarding custody and visitation of their two children.
The Baltimoresun.com reports:
Suggs and Williams both appeared in court Tuesday in Towson along with their respective attorneys.
Williams voluntarily removed a temporary protective order filed Nov. 20 that alleged the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year punched her in the neck in early September and drove a car containing their two children “at a high rate of speed,” while she was dragged alongside.
“She has lifted the petition voluntarily, over and done, and he denies the allegations,” Lynn Hoffman, Suggs’ attorney, told The Baltimore Sun. “They’re moving forward in the best interests of the children and they’ve resolved their personal issues.”
Suggs faces no criminal charges related to the alleged September incident. Under Maryland law because he was served with a protective order, Suggs was required to surrender a total of seven firearms, which he complied with, according to his attorney, Warren Alperstein, and Ravens director of security Darren Sanders.
Baltimore County police said two 911 calls were placed from Suggs’ address on Nov. 21. However, no reports were taken.
“There was no finding of wrongdoing whatsoever by the court,” Alperstein said following Tuesday’s court appearance.
Suggs issued the following statement last Friday through his publicist:
“My fiancee’ and I have two beautiful children together whom we both love and care for tremendously. The personal issues that the two of us have faced recently have been addressed in a responsible and adult manner and have been resolved. I am certain that we will get through this matter and move forward as a happy family.”
In December 2009, Williams was granted a protective order against Suggs following an alleged domestic violence incident. That order was rescinded roughly a month later after the couple reconciled and she dropped a $70 million lawsuit against him.
“Terrell is eager to move on,” Alperstein said.
