Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Geno Hayesdidn't have a particularly good Saturday evening, as his 19-year-old girlfriend allegedly stabbed him in the head with a pair of scissors, and then followed that by stabbing him in the neck with a knife, according to Josh Poltilove of the Tampa Tribune.
Hayes' girlfriend, Shevelle Bagley, has already been released from custody after having bail set at $25,000. Hayes was released from the hospital after being treated for a "superficial wound" to his head.
Deputies arrested 19-year-old Shevelle Bagley at 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Carter said. Bagley was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. The incident began with an argument Saturday, and Bagley grabbed a pair of scissors, stabbing Hayes and causing a superficial wound to Hayes' head, Carter said. Hayes got the scissors away from Bagley. Then Bagley "grabbed a knife and stabbed him in the neck," Carter said.
Hayes, a sixth-round pick in 2008, is expected to compete for the starting spot vacated by the recently released by Derrick Brooks. He recorded 13 tackles and blocked a punt, returning it for a touchdown, during his rookie season.
