Former Missouri Tiger running back Tony Temple was charged with assaulting his former girlfriend and breaking her $4,000 television set. According to court reports, Temple allegedly grabbed her throat and hair, hit her ankle in a door and dug his fingernails into her after getting angry asking where she had been the night before.
It is also alleged that Temple threw her shoes at her big screen TV, shattering the screen. The woman said Temple moved out the week before and she didn’t want to be with him. She also claimed he kicked in a door, punched a wall and broke glass.
Temple’s side of the story was that he went over to her place to let her dog out and she started throwing items and said she would set him up if he left the house. Bond set at $40,000.
Just two years ago, tomorrow, Temple broke the Cotton Bowl rushing record when he ran for 281 yards against Arkansas.
