Seahawks defensive tackle Rocky Bernard displayed the aggression and pursuit that's made him a key contributor to the reigning NFC West champions when he chased down his ex-girlfriend and the mother of one of his children and punched her in the face. Despite the heads-up play, he was arrested and is being investigated for domestic violence.
The former girlfriend and a friend said they saw Bernard, who turned 29 on Saturday, in an "altercation" with another woman at Ibiza, a club at 528 Second Ave. Bernard then walked toward the former girlfriend and punched her in the forehead with a closed fist, causing her head to strike a glass divider, according to a police report.
The victim, 22, and friend told police they ran to a car to get away. Bernard allegedly followed them as they shut the car doors and pounded the windows as they drove away, according to a police report.
Uncertain how far Bernard would pursue them, they drove to a "safe" location in South Seattle and called police about 2:15 a.m.
Well, ladies, he's gonna pursue you 'til the play's over. Rocky Bernard punches women whistle-to-whistle.
