Jets' Enunwa gets 4-game ban for 2014 domestic violence bust

One year later, Quincy Enunwa is paying for his domestic violence arrest.

The NFL announced Monday that it suspended Enunwa four games for violating the personal conduct policy. The suspension stems from a simple assault arrest on Aug. 31, 2014 after an alleged domestic violence incident, according to a source.

The charges against Enunwa were dismissed on Oct. 15, 2014 after the complainant, who was his girlfriend at the time of the incident, asked, via her attorney, that charges be dropped.

Todd Bowles said he heard in the preseason that there could be a suspension levied and admitted he was surprised it occurred so late into the season.

Though the discipline for a first-time domestic violence is normally a six-game suspension, Enunwa’s cooperation and remorse were a factor in it only being a four-game suspension, according to a source. There will be no appeal because the suspension was negotiated settlement between the NFL and NFLPA, according to a source.


“We support and respect the NFL’s decision to suspend Quincy Enunwa,” the Jets said in a statement. “The New York Jets share the NFL’s ongoing commitment to raising awareness of the frequency and impact of domestic and relationship violence, supporting survivors, and encouraging others to speak out and seek help.”

According to police, the incident happened at the Wyndham Hamilton Park Hotel and the arrest occurred at 7:19 p.m.

Enunwa will miss the team’s games against the Patriots, Raiders, Jaguars and Bills. Enunwa has eight receptions for 94 yards this year.
