Chad Wheeler ex-girlfriend Alleah Taylor talks domestic violence case

Alleah Taylor, the victim of the alleged domestic violence incident involving former Seahawks offensive lineman Chad Wheeler, broke her silence in an interview and spoke about how the trauma has affected her.

“I still have to regularly get my concussion checked,” Taylor said in an interview with CBS This Morning that aired Wednesday. “I have bolts and a steel plate I’m going to have forever in my arm. I’m going to have to deal with this the rest of my life.”

Taylor, 27, recounted how she became worried about Wheeler’s behavior after he texted her Jan. 22 that he had shaved his head, despite her saying that he loved his long hair.

“I came home and Chad was trying to play it off as he just kind of cut his hair, but then as time went on throughout the day, he started going downhill emotionally,” she said.

Taylor appeared in the interview with her right arm in a sling and repeatedly had to fight back tears as she recounted the alleged incident.

Taylor told police that Wheeler has bi-polar disorder and that he “snapped into a dark place” during the incident.

Offensive tackle Chad Wheeler is no longer with the team, the Seattle Seahawks said.

“He stood up,” Taylor said, recounting the alleged incident. “And he told me to bow down. And I asked him why. And he didn’t respond. He just told me to bow down again. And I told him no. And he immediately grabbed my neck. And that’s when things began.”

Taylor said Wheeler threw her on a bed and tried to choke her. Taylor said she blacked out twice.

“I had touched my face and I looked down, and there was blood on my hand,” Taylor continued. “I remember getting up and running to the bathroom. Chad was standing by the bed, by the doorway and he was sipping his smoothie and was, like, ‘Wow, you’re, you’re still alive.’ “
