New details from police records indicated former Jaguars safety Marlon McCree was allegedly in a vehicle pursuit with an ex-wife and rammed his vehicle into hers twice in the process.
McCree faces a second-degree felony charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, according to his arrest report.
The two women involved in the incident told police they had to drive at a high rate of speed to lose him after he allegedly rammed his vehicle into theirs during a short chase through the parking lots of Regency Square Mall and the nearby Best Buy. The victims appeared very afraid and were frantic after fleeing toward downtown, the report said.
They had tried to go to the Police Memorial Building on Bay Street, but the door to the entrance was locked, the report said.
They then fled their vehicle and were let into a nearby bar and hid inside.
The women were not injured in the incident. McCree’s ex-wife told police there were previous instances of domestic violence that she was told by her attorney to do so.
When police contacted the former Jaguars player, he allegedly said a friend had his vehicle at the time of the incident, but the victims were sure it was him, providing a description of the suspect and his clothing that matched what he was wearing when he was taken into custody, according to the report.
