(Glen and Christina. If not in happier days, then at least during a time in which neither felt compelled to appear fully clothed.)
Former Miami Heat star Glen Rice was charged Friday with felony battery after Miami-Dade police said he beat a man he found hiding in his estranged wife’s bedroom closet.
Rice, 40, of Coral Gables, turned himself in to authorities soon after the incident and quickly bonded out of the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center, police said. It was not known if he had hired an attorney.
Rice went to Christina Rice’s home near Coral Gables Friday afternoon, demanding to know the identity of the man she was with and asking why the man was in her house, according to a police report. Glen Rice then quickly found Alberto Perez, 37, hiding in the closet, police said.
Perez called 911 about 1:30 p.m. after Glen Rice hit him several times on the head and Perez was able to run out of the house, police said. Perez’s facial injuries, mainly a laceration on his forehead, required nine stitches, according to the report
In Perez’ defense, when someone says they’re in an open relationship on their Facebook profile, you tend to give them the benefit of the doubt.
