New England Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss, not exactly a stranger to “how do you do’s” to the authorities, may be in legal hot water again. According to WDBO, an Orlando, FL radio station, Moss has been hit with a temporary injunction for protection against dating violence. According to the affidavit, Moss committed a battery upon the victim, causing serious injury and then refused to allow her to seek medical attention.
The afffidavit in question also reveals that Moss cannot come within 500 feet of said victim and cannot use or possess firearms. A hearing in the case is scheduled for January 28; at that time, the court will determine whether to file a permanent judgement of injunction for protection against dating violence. As of this writing, no charges have been filed against Moss.
As stated earlier, Moss is no stranger to scrapes against the law. Moss’ problems began in high school when he served a 30-day sentence for kicking a high school classmate. He was also kicked out of Florida State for marijuana usage, arrested for domestic violence and then arrested for pushing a Minneapolis police officer with his car. The timing of this is not very good for neither Moss or the Patriots. How the team handles this is speculative in nature as of right now.
