NEW: The Statesman has obtained Chris Beard's arrest affidavit.— Ryan Autullo (@AutulloAAS) December 12, 2022
A woman told police Beard "choked me, threw me off the bed, bit me, bruises all over my leg, throwing me around, and going nuts."
She said the choking lasted for five seconds and impeded her breathing, police say.
Beard’s attorney, Perry Minton, issued a statement to various media outlets: “Coach Beard is 100 percent innocent of these charges. He should have never been arrested. The complainant wants him released immediately and all charges dismissed. It is truly inconceivable.”

Terry said he gathered the team’s veterans after the news and spoke with them. “I took our older guys – our 7 older guys – and I had a really good talk with those guys,” he said. “I told them there are going to be things like this the rest of your life. Adapt and adjust – we have a job to do.” Terry added: “”I love Beard like my own brother,” but said he had not had any contact with him. “We were just trying to rally around our guys and get their minds in the right place,” he said.
