Just as his NFL career is beginning, former Hoosier receiver James Hardy has been accused of fighting his father and pulling a gun Sunday in Fort Wayne.
According to a police report, a 73-year-old woman said that Hardy, 22, was beating up his father and when she yelled for him to stop, Hardy pulled out a black gun.
Hardy was not arrested. Criminal charges are not going to be filed, according to the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel. Hardy left the scene in a Cadillac truck before police arrived, according to the witness.
Hardy’s 43-year-old father, James W. Hardy II, told Fort Wayne police that he and his son got into an argument, but his son did not do anything to him. He said the younger Hardy is always angry because he was in prison much of the time when his son was a child.
Police arrested the elder Hardy for an outstanding warrant in Kosciusko County, where he was wanted for failing to appear on a violation of driving with a suspended license.
