Harper's Wife Jailed After Cutting Him

Posted Jan 15, 2006

Updating a prior report, Nick Harper required stitches after his wife cut his knee with a knife.

Earlier this evening, an NFL.com wire report stated that Colts cornerback Nick Harper required stitches in his knee following an injury from a traffic accident.

Evidently, the term "accident" had been misconstrued. The Associated Press is now reporting that Harper's wife has been arrested and is being held without bond on charges of battery with a deadly weapon and criminal recklessness after cutting Harper's knee with a knife.

Harper was treated at a local hospital and his injury has left him questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Hamilton County Sheriff Doug Carter said Daniell Harper and her husband were fighting at the time of the incident. This is the second domestic incident between the Harpers in less than a year. Nick Harper was arrested in June on a domestic battery charge after police claimed that he hit his wife.
