CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — A Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s spokesman says the 10 guns seized last year from Dallas Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy’s apartment following a domestic violence incident will be sold or auctioned off at a later date.
Rob Brisley says in an email that Hardy’s attorney sent a letter to the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office on Feb. 25 relinquishing all the weapons to Sheriff Irwin Carmichael and the sheriff’s office.READ MORE: Striking Kellogg's Workers Receiving 3% Raises In New Contract
Brisley says a court order mandates the weapons be sold or auctioned off.
Hardy was convicted on two counts of domestic abuse last July while a member of the Carolina Panthers. The chargers were later dismissed when Hardy’s accuser failed to show up for the appeal trial.READ MORE: 87% Of Michigan's COVID ICU Patients Unvaccinated, Hospital Association Says
