Rolle settles charge for allegedly hitting wife

Associated Press


FRANKLIN, Tenn. -- Baltimore Ravens cornerback Samari Rolle agreed to probation, anger management and marriage counseling Wednesday, settling a charge for allegedly hitting his wife in February.

Rolle also will make a $10,000 donation to help battered women or children under a pretrial diversion agreement reached in Williamson County General Sessions Court. If he completes the counseling and finishes his probation of 11 months, 29 days without incident, the charge will be expunged from his record.

He was arrested on the misdemeanor charge after his wife, Danisha, was treated for a cut over her left eye at Baptist Hospital in Nashville. Hospital officials called authorities. Rolle could have faced up to a year in jail if convicted.

Rolle appeared in court with his wife, but declined to talk to the media.

"Obviously, he loves his wife. There's never been any interruption in their relationship," said his attorney, Peter Strianse. "They have resided together as husband and wife, and things are fine between them."

District Attorney General Ron Davis said the couple already is in marriage counseling. Davis said he agreed to the deal after hearing from Danisha Rolle that it was acceptable.

A second-round draft pick in 1998 by the Tennessee Titans, Rolle was an All-Pro in 2000. He was released by the Titans for salary cap reasons two weeks after his arrest, and signed a six-year contract with Baltimore on March 7.

I really never wanted Samari Rolle. With the contract he demanded, the injury issue, and the off-the-field troubles he has been into lately, I really didn't think it was that great of a fit.

Rolle isn't young by any means either.

True. I'd much rather get Surtain.

I would rather get Surtain, or take the risk on Ty Law before KC signed Samari Rolle. I just didn't feel good about him.

With Law, the injury is a big concern, but he is a winner and a D leader. I'm not sure Samari Rolle is either.

Signing Rolle would have likely meant no Surtain.

And Surtain is BY FAR the better player.
