Panthers QB Cam Newton listed as victim in stalking incident
While Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton currently finds himself under fire for a sexist comment he uttered last Sunday following their win over the New England Patriots, a bit of troubling news from the Charlotte Observer has been released, with Newton as the victim.
Apparently, someone was so eager to have a face-to-face with the former Auburn Tigers quarterback that police had to step into the picture.
Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was listed as a victim in an apparent stalking incident, according to a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police report.
According to the report, the unnamed individual went to the Bank of America Stadium on Wednesday looking for Newton. It wasn’t the first time that the person tried to get close to Newton, and despite previously being turned away and asked to not return, the suspect still hoped he could meet Newton in person on Wednesday.
The Panthers were able to take down the Detroit Lions on Sunday, improving their record to 4-1.
Carolina put up a big-time 33-30 win over the Pats the previous weekend in which Newton passed for 316 yards and three touchdowns. Patriots’ pass rushers, however, had some success getting to him in the pocket, as Newton was sacked twice in that game for a loss of 12 yards.
