CLEARWATER â€” Hassan Jones, a former NFL wide receiver who starred at Clearwater High School and Florida State University, is accused of menacing his wife and daughter with a golf club and assaulting his daughter.
Jones, 45, was arrested Monday night and is being held without bail in the Pinellas County Jail on charges of aggravated assault and felony domestic battery.
Jones yanked his daughter by the arm out of the driver's seat of her vehicle around 10:15 p.m., according to police reports. He dragged her across concrete and into a residence, sat on top of her and held her by the throat, police said. The daughter was freed when her mother knocked Jones off her, police said.
They said Jones grabbed a Callaway Big Bertha driver, waved it at his wife and daughter and screamed that he was going to strike each of them in the head. He also hit walls near the victims with the club, the police reports said.
