The court documents in the arrest of Carolina Panthers DE Greg Hardy have come forward and it doesn't paint a pretty picture.
A woman at Hardy's apartment told officers she had been physically assaulted and threatened by Hardy. She told officers she was thrown to the floor and into a bathtub and that Hardy threatened to kill her while she was being assaulted.
Hardy turned himself in and was being held in the Mecklenburg County (NC) Jail overnight. He made a first appearance before a judge Wednesday morning and the lawyers involved in the case have differing opinions of what went down in Hardy's apartment.
Hardy's lawyer, Chris Fialko, says Hardy called 911 to have the accuser/girlfriend removed.
The victim's lawyer, Stephen Goodwin, said the woman was being held down by another man (identified as Hardy's administrative assistant, Sammy Curtis) and wasn't allowed to call 911.
Fialko then said the victim tried to call Hardy at least a dozen times since the incident.
Goodwin responded by saying the accuser/girlfriend is scared.
The judge assigned to the case ruled that Hardy would have to attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings three times a week as a part of his release, ordered Hardy not to have any contact with the victim, and had bond set at $17,000.
The accuser filed a domestic protection order as well and it says that Hardy threw the woman onto a couch covered in assault rifles. Hardy bragged that all the guns were loaded.

PM UPDATE: Jason LaCanfora over at CBS Sports has the 9-1-1 calls and they seem to give conflicting information
9-1-1 Call Number One:
"I’m running around the table right now. She’s trying to hit me with her shoe," Hardy says on the call. "Ah s—t. She broke some glass. F—. F—! She’s trying to hit me with another shoe. I’m behind the bar. I’m not touching her. My manager’s retaining her. She’s still trying to get me."
Hardy then states that his girlfriend "won't let" him close the door to his apartment and she "hit me in the face twice."
"She won’t let me close the door. I can’t touch her to get her out. She’s literally kicking and scratching. My manager’s retaining her," Hardy says. "She tried to hit me once, she hit me in the face twice. I’m trying to stay away from her. Can you please send somebody to help me?"
It can be heard hyah...

"Domestic violence. Some girl’s getting her ass beat upstairs. And I heard it. And I seen it," a female voice is heard saying. "He is beating her ass right the f— now. So get here now. I was in the apartment. He’s beating her ass."
