Ex-Red Wing Enforcer Darren McCarty Drops Protection Order Against Ex-Lover
Former Detroit Red Wing Darren McCarty and his wife agreed to drop a personal protection order against one of his ex-girlfriends.
The action took place Wednesday in Oakland County Circuit Court.
WWJ-AM reports attorney Jeffrey Lance Abood said his client, 37-year-old Tonya Juhl of Clawson, was never a threat to McCarty, and the judge saw that.
“It’s unfortunate that athletes and their spouses believe they are entitled to special treatment even far long after they’ve been out of the spotlight,” Abood told the station. “Fortunately, for us in this case, in the courtroom justice was blind and ultimately the correct decision was made.”
Abood said Judge Joan Young found no merit to the claim that McCarty was afraid of Juhl.
Abood said McCarty's wife had an issue with the ex-girlfriend.
Juhl agreed to remove any posts about the McCartys from social media.
