NFL Player Allegedly DESTROYS Ex's Apartment

6/15/2011 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Atlanta Falcons cornerback Christopher Owens is under investigation in Georgia for allegedly smashing up his baby mama's apartment and dousing her most valuable possessions in bleach ... TMZ has learned.


Cops in Gwinnett County responded to the apartment Sunday night ... after Owens' ex-GF, LaTia Terry, claimed the NFL player entered the pad when she and their 9-month-old kid were out of the home ... and trashed the place. Sources connected to the incident tell us the two had a heated argument over their custody arrangement the night before.

According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, LaTia says 24-year-old Owens -- a 3rd round pick in the 2009 draft -- smashed holes in the wall, destroyed expensive electronics and even broke the baby's crib.

But worst of all, Owens allegedly grabbed handfuls of LaTia's valuable jewelry, designer clothes and pictures of the the former couple ... threw it all in a pile ... and drenched it with bleach -- ruining everything.


LaTia claims she lost several pairs of fancy $1,200 shoes in the bleaching ... and estimates her total loss to be around $15,000.

LaTia has obtained a restraining order against Owens -- but so far, he has not been charged with a crime.

Calls to Owens have not been returned.

u should have worn a condom & she would have never gotten pregnate. but the woman is no fool ching ching ching ching that's all she see's is them $$$$$$$$ signs. I'm sure he bought her all those clothes & shoes but he shouldn't have broken the crib. actually he should have never done any of it & walk away like a man. but sometimes people don't think with there head just there other head.

No problem. He is a pro football player, and it's Georgia. Remember Ben Roethlisberger & the co-ed? Never detained or questioned about a rape accusation.

Yeah he trashed everything his child support payed for Im guessing. Im sure the baby's money was wasted on her 1200 dollar pair of hooker boots. IF he even did it. Wouldnt blame him though. Just bc we woman give birth does not give us the right to deny the father rights. If it wasnt for the babies fathers... they wouldnt be here. AND if it werent for him getting her pregnant.. she wouldnt of been able to buy all the **** "he ruined"

Not surprised at all about this douchebag. First he basically gives up playing cornerback during the playoffs against the Packers, now he wrecks his baby mama's place.Once the labor strike is over, he's getting kicked off the team.

What an idiot - now he's gotta buy her a ton of new stuff! Get your credit card out, Dummy!

PLUS, now he has a criminal record.

And, ummm .... that's got to be a lot more than $15k in damage?

Good news for the GF though ... bleached-out stuff is sort of in style this season!

I am going under the assumption that he paid for the items he destrpyed, so he was siply trashing hisown stuff. As for the crib, I'm thinking he paid for that too, and since he probably has one at his home for his child, he's sending her the message that she need sto use her own money to buy a crib. I can't say I agree with his actions, but when men who are being bilked by women snap, I also can't really say I don't understnd.
