Police say Jonathan Dwyer head-butted wife, broke her nose

Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer's arrest for assaulting his wife carries an extremely ugly set of allegations

Dwyer allegedly tried to kiss his wife and remove her clothing with his wife biting his lip after he refused to stop, according to police.

Dwyer then allegedly head-butted her and broke her nose. Then, neighbors called police.

Dwyer allegedly texted her saying he didn't want to live anymore and included a picture of a knife.

One day later, Dwyer allegedly punched his wife and threw a shoe that hit a child in the stomach. She then left the state and reported the incidents.

Dwyer has been deactivated by the Cardinals.
