James Hardy and Toya Wright

Former NFL player James hardy III was arrested over the weekend for attacking multiple Los Angeles police officers, according to gossip tabloid TMZ.

If you’re not familiar with the name, Hardy once dated socialite Antonia Wright, formerly Toya Carter, aka one of rapper Lil Wayne‘s baby mamas.

James is no stranger to violence. If you recall, he was accused of assaulting an ex-girlfriend.

In July 2009, he wrote a letter to clear his good name and to explain his side of the story. Read the letter here.

.. cops were called to an apartment complex in downtown L.A. around 4:30 PM … and when they arrived to the scene Hardy refused to cooperate.

We’re told Hardy — a wide receiver who played for the Bills and the Ravens — got aggressive and attacked the officers. We’re told he injured at least three cops.

Eventually, officers used a TASER in an effort to subdue Hardy … but it didn’t have the desired effect.

Several officers ultimately were able to take Hardy into custody and he was arrested for felony obstruction of justice. Hardy was later transported to a hospital.

Law enforcement sources tell us … officers believe Hardy may have been under the influence at the time of the incident.

Hardy is a BIG dude — according to his booking sheet, the 28-year-old is 6’6″ tall and weighs 225 lbs. Source
