Greg Hardy pleaded not guilty to assaulting his girlfriend


Panthers star defensive end Greg Hardy pleaded not guilty on Tuesday to charges of communicating threats and assaulting his girlfriend,  according to the Charlotte Observer.

Nicole Holder, 24, a waitress at an Epicentre nightclub who used to live with Hardy, told authorities Hardy attacked her during an after-party at his uptown condo in the early-morning hours of May 13.

Holder testified Tuesday afternoon that she had a wonderful relationship with Hardy as they began dating last September until she traveled with him to Hawaii in January as he played in the NFL Pro Bowl. She had expected to fly with him to the Super Bowl in New York, she said, but found at the airport that he had changed her ticket and sent her back to Charlotte.

I could be wrong, but it doesn’t sound like Hardy really cares about his girlfriend.
