Greg Hardy has turned in nine firearms to authorities, per the conditions of his release on bond for charges of assaulting and threatening his ex-girlfriend, Nicole Holder, according to Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer. David Newton of ESPN released a list from police of the guns turned over by the Carolina Panthers defensive end:
As Jonathan Jones of The Observer noted, the list consists primarily of assault weapons and shotguns -- no handguns. For example, the Tavor is classified as an assault rifle, the L1A1 as a semi-automatic battle rifle and the Benelli M4 as a tactical shotgun. All told, the list consisted of "six military-type, semi-automatic rifles and three .12-gauge shotguns," according to The Observer. Per Jones, permits were not required for the firearms.
Hardy was ordered to turn in all of his firearms to authorities after allegedly throwing his ex-girlfriend, Nicole Holder, onto a couch covered with guns in an altercation, causing her bodily harm. Holder claimed that Hardy had a much larger stockpile than Hardy has reportedly turned over, which she said consisted of 25-30 "AK-47s, automatic-looking weapons, shotguns, rifles and pistols."
Hardy and Holder had a relationship that ended in March, and were reportedly in the midst of reconciling when an altercation occurred Monday night. Hardy allegedly threw Holder, stranggled her and slammed her into a futon and tile bathtub. At one point, Hardy reportedly threatened to shoot Holder.
According to the police report, the dispute began when Hardy became angry with Holder over a previous relationship with rapper Nelly that occurred after the two broke up. Hardy's representation claims that Holder initiated the conflict.
It is unclear whether Holder will pursue a criminal case against Hardy after parting ways with her attorney Thursday. She filed a request barring Hardy from her home, the home of her parents and the restaurant where she works, but her request was denied after she failed to appear for a hearing.
