    Browns RB Green Stabbed

    Green's Fiancee Pleads Innocent to Stabbing Charge

    WESTLAKE, Ohio (Nov. 20) -- William Green's fiancee pleaded innocent Thursday to charges she stabbed the Cleveland Browns running back at their home.

    Green was wounded under his left shoulder blade during a fight Wednesday, police said. His lawyer, Brian Downey, said the player was released from the hospital later that night after getting three stitches.

    Asia Gray, who has two children with Green, was ordered held on $18,500 bond. She is charged with assault and domestic violence, and if convicted on both counts could face two to eight years in prison.

    "She was in another room when it happened and she called for help," said her attorney, Henry Hilow. "It's also important to note that she took him to the hospital."

    Judge Maureen Gravens prohibited her from having any contact with Green.

    Just three weeks ago, Green appeared in the same courtroom after he was arrested on charges of drunken driving and marijuana possession. He is under suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse program.

    Earlier Wednesday, Gray made an emergency call to police saying Green cut himself. Green later told police he was injured when he fell down stairs.

    "It's sad that he was involved in a situation like that," Browns coach Butch Davis said. "Certainly his teammates and coaches are glad it was not more severe."

    Police responded to the 911 call from Gray, who requested an ambulance for Green. But Gray had taken Green to the hospital by the time the emergency vehicle arrived.

    Police wouldn't say what the fight was about or what Green was stabbed with.

    Green was arrested Oct. 27 after police said they spotted him driving erratically. Police said he failed a field sobriety test and a breath test, and had a bag of marijuana in his car.

    The NFL suspended Green for four games last week for violating the league's substance-abuse policy. The Browns suspended him for the Nov. 9 game at Kansas City for "conduct detrimental to the team," and the league will count that game as part of its suspension.

    Green is not permitted to be at the team's training facility, and the Browns are not allowed to have contact with him.

    Browns president Carmen Policy said the team hopes the league will make an exception and permit the club to help Green deal with his problems.

    Green has had a troubled life. He was 12 when his father, a former heroin addict, died of AIDS. A year later, his mother died of the disease.

    While he was at Boston College, Green twice was suspended for marijuana use. He was the No. 16 overall pick in the 2002 draft despite being the top-rated back in that year's class.

    The Browns were aware of Green's past drug infractions when they drafted him. Last year, the club signed him to a five-year contract worth $12 million if he reaches incentives

    Yeah, he's a good one. But the stabbing thing's not his fault.

    Here is the number reason I look up to Warrick Dunn. Do you ever hear of this kind of stuff happening with him? No. I wish there'd be more pro's like him, not like William Green.

    Of course, his parents dying at a young age sure didn't help him, nor did the fact that they died from AIDS.

    ummm too bad but birds of a feather...
    his first question to her on their first date should ahve been "do you have the capability of stabbing a man in his sleep?"

    in a related note- i do have his back up in FFL... maybe she was paid off- maybe there is a conspiracy brewing aorund c-town?
