Biggs: Stubblefield's ex-fiance accuses him of violence
The ex-fiance of Dana Stubblefield has obtained a restraining order against the retired defensive lineman, the San Jose Mercury News reported.
Melanie Wade, 26, accused Stubblefield of knocking her off a bicycle with his truck, and said she came public with her complaint because she feared authorities were not doing enough to protect her. She said that in June 2008 he knocked her off her bicycle causing her to suffer bruises and cuts.
Wade told KGO-TV that their relationship began to fall apart when he pled guilty in the Balco steroid investigation last year.
“He would lock me in and not let me leave the house, and tell me threats like, `I'm not done with you 'till you're six feet under,’ like 'I'm the only man you're going to be with,’’’ Wade told the TV station.
Wade accused Stubblefield of forging her name on a change-of-address form with the Post Office in order to receive her mail. She said she broke up with Stubblefield in July but in her Aug. 5 request for the order said: “I am fearful for my life because, during his phone calls, Dana continuously threatened me with physical violence and death.’’
Stubblefield has denied the accusations through his attorney. A judge granted the order and it requires Stubblefield to remain 300 feet away from her and 30 feet away if they are at Family Community Church in San Jose at the same time. A hearing is scheduled Wednesday to determine if the order should remain in place.
Stubblefield has some experience with prison. He appeared in the 2000 Ehren Kruger Christmas thriller "Reindeer Games," playing the role of a convict who stabs another inmate.
