Chad Wheeler attacks his girlfriend – Alleah
Chad Wheeler’s girlfriend has only been identified by her first name, ‘Alleah’ by Wheller while tweeting an apology to her and announcing that he stepping away from NFL. He played as an offensive tackle for the Seattle Seahawks of the National Football League.
Wheeler and his girlfriend were reportedly involved in a domestic dispute, during which he allegedly asked her to bow down to him, according to a police report. It is unclear if she obliged, but the violent assault allegedly occurred shortly after his request.
Alleah allegedly sent text messages to someone detailing the assault, writing: “He thought I was dead on my bed and continued to eat dinner. Adding: “When I ran into the bathroom, he said, ‘Wow, you’re still alive’ while sipping on a smoothie.”
The alleged assault occurred at an apartment in Kent, Washington and police found her locked in the bathroom. She told authorities in a 911 call that she was being “killed” and had a dislocated arm, according to the police report.
Wheeler was on Bipolar Medication Pills
Wheeler was reportedly on bipolar medication but had stopped taking the pills. FOX Sports analyst and former NFL linebacker Emmanuel Acho shared gruesome photos on Twitter of a woman with a badly battered face, whom he claimed is Wheeler’s girlfriend.

“Chad Wheeler of the @Seahawks tried to kill his girlfriend because she wouldn’t bow to him. He was even surprised at her survival,” tweeted Acho. “If you’re not outraged, you’re part of the problem. @NFL handle this swiftly & decisively.”
Wheeler was arrested and booked into King County Jail on January 26 in Washington but was later released after posting a $400,000 bond. He’s due back in court on January 27 for a probable cause hearing and was ordered to stay away from the victim.
This is not his first run-in with the law, as he was previously detained while in college in Los Angeles for allegedly punching walls and windows while under the influence. He wasn’t arrested but was instead taken to a hospital for a mental evaluation.
Wheeler Expressed Remorse in a series of Twets
On Wednesday, June 27th, a day after the alleged assault, Wheeler apologized to his girlfriend and her family and expressed “remorse” for the pain and suffering he caused them.
“Events [that] happened over the weekend that transpired from a manic episode. I am deeply sorry for the pain and suffering that I have caused to Alleah and her family,” Wheeler tweeted, referring to his girlfriend.
Wheeler, a backup offensive tackle who played for the Giants from 2017 to 2019, then added in the tweet thread: “I apologize profusely for the turmoil that I have caused to my family, teammates, fans and those closest to me. The most important thing right now is that Alleah gets the care she needs and I get help. Both are happening.”
He finally added, in a third tweet: “It is time for me to walk away from football and get the help I need to never again pose a threat to another. I cannot express my sorrow or remorse enough. I am truly ashamed.”
