Brett Rogers Charged With DV, Strangles Wife, Choked His Kids In The Past and FIRED!

Quote:
Strikeforce heavyweight Brett Rogers has been arrested and charged with assault in the 3rd degree, domestic assault by strangulation, and pattern of stalking conduct after assaulting his wife in their Minnesota home on Wednesday.

According to a report from MyFoxTwinCities.com, it states that Rogers was arrested after he reportedly punched his wife repeatedly, strangled her, and she lost a tooth and had a golf ball sized wound on her face.

Apparently his wife blacked out from the strangulation and their daughters were in the home and tried to separate the two from fighting, which resulted in Rogers also being charged with a gross misdemeanor for child endangerment.

The other three charges levied on Rogers are felonies in Dakota County, Minnesota.

Rogers stated when arrested that he had been drinking before the argument broke out that led to the arrest.

According to the police report, Rogers’ children tried to keep their parents from fighting after witnessing their father push their mother, and their elder daughter stated that Rogers had struck her mother in the past, and also struck the children as well.

Bail was set at $100,000 with conditions and he is set to appear back in court on Friday

Tough-to-read news from the world of mixed martial arts today, as Minnesota fighter Brett Rogers is facing several charges of domestic assault after police say he violently attacked his wife Wednesday.

Rogers, 30, has been charged with third-degree assault, domestic assault by strangulation, a pattern of stalking conduct, all felonies. He was also charged with the endangerment of a child.

Official police reports indicate that officers were dispatched to the Rogers home in Apple Valley, Minn. at approximately 12:35 a.m. on Wednesday evening, when a caller reported hearing yelling, a female screaming and glass being broken from a neighbor’s home.

Rogers stated to police that he had argued with his wife and that she hit him during the argument, so he hit her back. Rogers had no visible injuries on his body. The report also adds that his breath smelled of alcohol and that he admitted to consuming alcohol that evening.

A neighbor reported that he had looked out his window and saw Rogers standing over his wife, repeatedly punching her in the head and face as she lay on the ground. Another neighbor stated that he saw her with blood “streaming from her face and mouth” with what looked to be a missing tooth.

Rogers’ nine-year-old daughter saw the incident unfold and yelled at her father to stop. Rogers’ 10-year-old daughter was also present and witnessed the attack, admitting that she had seen her father strike her mother in the past. She also reported that her father had struck the children within the last two years.

Rogers’ wife, T.R., was located by officers walking by a nearby school with injuries on her face that included a golf ball-sized bump above her left eyebrow, injuries to her ears and jaw, a missing tooth and numerous wounds to her neck and back.

She repeatedly denied that she was assaulted and said that she had simply fallen on the ground.

Paramedics were called immediately due to what were described as serious injuries to her head. She was transported to a nearby hospital and released the following afternoon.

Both children told a neighbor whom they had been staying with that they were afraid to go home and that their father had “choked” them in the past.

An officer attempted to speak with T.R. on Thursday, but she refused, telling him that the assault was her fault.

Rogers made his first court appearance on Thursday. His bail was set in the amount of $100,000, with conditions. His next court appearance is July 1.

I laughed, but that was uncalled for.

Not making excuses at all for Rogers, he can rot in jail for all i care about. But if his wife really hit him first then she is an idiot, punching a drunk pro-fighter with a domestic abuse background sounds like the last thing you want to do.

IMO, both idiots, both deserve each other, women didn't deserve a beating tho.

That's a pretty messed up situation.

I will say, though, I'm a firm believer that if you have the balls to hit someone, then you have the balls to get hit back, man or woman. Obviously, holding your wife down and punching her in the face is not the right thing to do, especially with kids watching, so I'm not defending Rogers at all.

I think it's wrong, and it definitely should have not gone to that extreme, especially with kids around, but I honestly don't feel remorse for a man or a woman who gets hit by someone if they hit that person first, so I feel 0 sympathy for his wife IF she did hit him. I'm not really sure if it's clear or not if she did yet, but if she did, then yeah, I feel nothing for her.

I feel for the kids, though, kids shouldn't have to watch something like that, it's just messed up.

Basically, I don't condone hitting women (or hitting anyone outside of sport), but if a woman hits a man, then her protective shield is gone. If she gets hit back, then that's that, she asked for it. You can't go around hitting people without getting hit back, I don't give a shit who you are or what gender you are. I do not think Rogers should have gone that far, obviously, that's wayyyy too much and he's ridiculous to do so and the law is going to take swift action I am sure, to make sure he gets punished. With that said, what can I say? She hit someone, she got hit back, that's the way of the world. I'd say throw her in jail as well as she started it, but since he did quite the number on her, I think she paid for the crime.

If she didn't hit him, then he deserves more than whatever they are doing to him legally.

Getting punched in the head multiple times will affect your judgement in the end. (sarcasm)


Rogers is a retard and a COWARD.

Yep dude just lost what little fanbase or chance of future fanbase he had. He's not popular enough to get away with wifebeating ala Pretty Boy Floyd and the kids thing is never going to go away, he's always going to be known and despised by many for that.
