Police reports released Monday
by the University of Maine show Jovan Belcher had a history of conflict in dealing with women.
Belcher, 25, made national headlines Saturday when the Kansas City Chiefs linebacker fatally shot his girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins, then later committed suicide with a handgun in Kansas City.
During his four years as a student at UMaine, Belcher was confronted by police about two on-campus incidents involving a woman. No criminal charges were filed in either incident.
On April 1, 2006, Belcher suffered a serious cut on his hand when the then-freshman punched out a window in a ground-floor door at Androscoggin Hall on the UMaine campus, according to university police Sgt. Scott Curtis, who reported, “I was told that Belcher was upset over a girl.”
Ten months later, Belcher was the subject of a dormitory noise complaint. According to a police report, a student in Gannett Hall called police about the raised voices of Belcher and his girlfriend as they had “a discussion outside his room.”
