Default IVERSON THREW HIS WIFE OUT OF THE HOUSE NAKED...NICE

ESPN.com news services


The case against Allen Iverson forcing his way into an apartment, confronting two men and showing a handgun apparently spawned from a domestic dispute spanning two days, according to a story in Thursday's Philadelphia Inquirer.


District Attorney's Office spokeswoman Cathie Abookire on Wednesday said her office has more work to do on the case. Abookire and Police Lt. Michael Chitwood, one of three detectives on the case who met with prosecutors for nearly three hours, told the Enquirer they have no time frame for when, or if, charges against Iverson would be filed.

"There's a few things we need to do, and then we'll see," Chitwood told the newspaper. "Stay tuned."

Authorities said investigators still needed to firm up a case against another man who they say was involved in the incident.

Police have alleged that Iverson, 27, and a companion confronted two men inside a West Philadelphia apartment about 3 a.m. July 3 while searching for his 26-year-old wife, Tawanna, who unknown to him had checked into the Conshohocken Marriott Residence Inn two days earlier.

Police have said Iverson had a gun in his waistband when he and a companion forced their way into the apartment, and have recommended that the 76ers star be charged with weapons violations, aggravated assault, criminal trespass, and other offenses.

Although the essence of a potential case against Iverson focuses on his going to the apartment, evidence emerging Wednesday -- including an audiotape obtained by the Inquirer of the 911 call made by the man Iverson allegedly assaulted -- indicated the seeds of the confrontation were planted at least two days earlier at Iverson's mansion in suburban Philadelphia.

The apartment is shared by Iverson's cousin Shaun T. Bowman and Charles Jones, and the call to 911 was made about 1:30 p.m. -- about 10 hours after the incident. Jones, 21, told the police dispatcher that Bowman and Tawanna Iverson had fled and were "in hiding."

"Allen Iverson and his wife have been going through some type of problem or whatever at home," Jones told the dispatcher.

Iverson had thrown her out of the house naked, Jones told the dispatcher. It was the third time he had thrown her out, he added. It was unclear how Jones got his information, and he could not be reached by the Inquirer on Wednesday.

The newspaper also could not reach Iverson for comment. He was briefly spotted at his mansion Wednesday night helping his wife unload bags of groceries from a white sedan and playing basketball with his children, the Inquirer reported.

On July 1, Iverson's wife checked into the Marriott in Conshohocken. She got two rooms, police said. About 9 o'clock the next night, Iverson arrived at the Marriott hotel near Philadelphia International Airport looking for his wife, police said.

Iverson questioned an employee in the hotel about Tawanna Iverson's whereabouts, listing a number of aliases she might be registered under, investigators said. He was there less than an hour, going up to a room and then leaving.

Six hours later, Iverson and another man arrived at Bowman's and Jones' third-floor apartment. Iverson was apparently in a rage, the Enquirer reported. Iverson knocked on the door and then pushed it open, according to a statement Jones made to the 911 dispatcher.

Iverson confronted Jones, who at the time was with a 17-year-old boy, and demanded to know the whereabouts of his wife and Bowman, who has been described as Tawanna Iverson's confidant.

"He was like, 'Where my (expletive) wife at?' " Jones told 911 in a calm voice. Jones also said: "He told her the next time he see her he was going to kill her, and this, that and the other."

Furthermore: "He was like, 'You got to tell me where he's at or something is going to happen.' He had a gun on his hip. He was sitting there threatening to shoot me this morning ... ."

From there, Iverson went to the Marriott in Conshohocken. Shortly before 4 a.m. -- less than an hour after the apartment invasion -- he was in the Conshohocken hotel parking lot.

A security guard stopped a Mercedes-Benz with two men inside that had been roaming the hotel parking lot with its lights off, police said. The passenger said he was looking for his wife, investigators told the Enqurier. The Mercedes then left, but returned a short while later. The guard called police, who responded and questioned the two.

Police sources identified the passenger as Iverson, who told them he had been looking for his wife. Detective Jim Carbo of the Conshohocken Police Department said he could not comment on the sighting. "It's still under investigation," Carbo said.

On Wednesday, the Sixers were taking a wait-and-see attitude about the potential problems facing their franchise player, according to the newspaper.

"I am very worried about Allen Iverson, but that is all I am going to say right now," said Ed Snider, chairman and chief executive officer of Comcast-Spectacor, owner of the Sixers. "I have not talked to him."

The funniest thing about the Iverson story is this classic excerpt:

The newspaper also could not reach Iverson for comment. He was briefly spotted at his mansion Wednesday night helping his wife unload bags of groceries from a white sedan and playing basketball with his children, the Inquirer reported.


Based on that, he has my vote for husband and father of the year!

every couple goes through some kinds of struggles. they just dont always involve being kicked out in the nude and guns in the waistband. lets all hope that iverson and his wife can get through this before we start making fun of him.

Iverson is a thug who needs to grow up.

With all due respect nino brown...Iverson is a mess...no doubt a great basketball player but all the crap that he's been involved with starting from the fracas in the bowling alley years ago, sorry but I feel nothing for this guy, nor anyone who throws their wife out, especially in the nude...talk through the problems not make new ones for himself, but don't make it where you become an embarrassment...all of this being said, it's still alleged.

Once a thug always a thug. The NBA is full of them and bottom line if it weren't for basketball the jails would be more populated.

Not that it matters but as a Conshohocken resident, I will unequivocally testify we have the poorest PD in the universe, I had to buy a new car just so they would stop pulling me over and harassing me, so I'd take anything they say with a grain of salt.

The police have already impounded his car and have been inside looking for the gun, telephone records, auto repairs and photographs. They also went to his uncle's house looking for stuff.

Pro athletes should get off easier because they are in the limelight.

Oh, wait, they already do.

I was searching through Google to find a picture of the Iverson Fam, which I found, no comment on his spouse. Anyways off topic....I read that ESPN Mag article on Darrell Russell and it says the girl he "raped" was in Playboy 2001...anyone know her name? has that been made public? any ideas on how to find out who she is?

Im calling on the King of all Media.....Lou Cypher....crack this and you truly are the media king!

In this case, I think Iverson's celebrity status is actually hurting him. This is a case where Iverson should see no jail time, and will be put on probation. I'm not condoning this, and AI is definitely someone that I wouldn't want as an enemy, but Philly sees worse crimes than this on a daily basis. But mark my words, those charges do not warrant jail time for a man with a (legally) clean record.

You can take the thug out of the hood but you can't take the thug out of the punk. On the other hand I have no sympathy for the gold digging women who hang out with these punks. That is part of the tradeoff of hanging with these millionaires. You get the Crystal, SUV's, hair and nails done, finest retaurants, but you have to take an ass beating now and then. To some it is worth it. It's not just black athletes either, the white's and hispanics pull the same shit. Maybe it's how we men are programmed to be. If you watch all those Discovery shows, especially the one's about lions, males can be some mean motherfvckers.
