Kevin Ware Jr., a former NFL tight end whose girlfriend, Taylor Pomaski, has been missing for months, was arrested at a Spring, Texas strip mall on Friday after missing his bond supervision hearings in April and May.
Police told Houston’s KPRC 2 they want to question him about Pomaski’s disappearance; she was last seen at a house party on April 25.
“There could be others that were around the house that night,” Eric Zuleger, a former boyfriend of Pomaski’s for six years with whom she remained friends, told KPRC 2. “I’m not for certain, but Kevin knows exactly what happened.”
Ware, who played for the San Francisco 49ers and Washington’s NFL team, was first arrested on April 19 on drug and weapon charges, according to ABC 13. Inside Edition Digital reports that police pulled Ware over for allegedly speeding and searched his vehicle; deputies said they found an AK-47 and a 9mm pistol along with cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana, and Xanax.
Days after Ware got out on a $23,000 bond, ABC 13 reports, he and Pomaski got into a furious fight during a get together at his home, according to witnesses who reported the altercation. Ware subsequently missed his bond hearings, and Pomaski has not been seen since. Zuleger told Inside Edition that when he was confronted Ware about her disappearance from the party, Ware told him Pomaski left the party on April 25 with one of his friends. Source: DailyBeast.com.
Of course, Ware is presumed to be not guilty of any wrongdoing; however, the alleged facts are interesting. Regardless of Pomaski’s disappearance, Ware’s adjusted pretrial conditions of release are likely to be dramatically more onerous.
