NFL free agent Terrelle Pryor has been arrested after getting into an ugly altercation with his girlfriend at his Pittsburgh apartment on November 30.
24-year-old Shalaya Briston was taken into custody by Pittsburgh police after she stabbed Pryor in the chest and shoulder. The troubles began when Pryor, Briston, and her friends all went out to dinner and drinks. The couple, who have been dating for about a year, began arguing. They apparently got into a fight after she and some friends came back to his apartment after a continued night out at the club. It started in the hallway and eventually spilled into his apartment kitchen. The next thing witnesses saw was Pryor clutching his chest and bleeding. Pryor was taken to hospital by Briston and her 3 friends. He arrived at UPMC Mercy Hospital in critical condition just a little bit after 4:30am. When cops responded to the call, they concluded that both Pryor and Briston got into a “mutual combat” incident on November 30th.
Briston was then arrested and charged with Criminal Attempt Homicide and Aggravated Assault. Pryor was arrested and charged with simple assault. While Pryor underwent surgery that morning, Briston went into the police station, got booked and taken to the Allegheny County Jail.
Amy Hudak of WPXI reports overhearing a witness at the hospital say, “We should have just let him die.” Hudak says witnesses told police the two had a “very volatile relationship” and that Pryor “always had his hands all over her.”
