NFL defensive end Robert Quinn has reportedly been charged by police in South Carolina after allegedly crashing into several cars and then slapping a woman.
Quinn, currently a free agent, turned himself into authorities on Friday following the alleged incident on Tuesday night.
Quinn, who signed a five-year deal worth $70million in 2020, is accused of hitting four cars, a gate and a light post.
The 33-year-old is then said to have struck a Summerville resident after neighbors reported several cars were damaged. Some spoke to Quinn, only for him to speed away.
‘He was very belligerent,’ one local told WCSC. ‘He kept saying: ‘Oh don’t worry about it I’ll buy you new cars, I’ll buy you new car, let’s go to the dealership.”

He spent six years with the Rams before stints with the Miami Dolphins, Dallas Cowboys, Chicago Bears and Philadelphia Eagles.
The Bears traded Quinn to the Eagles midway through the 2022 season, in exchange for a fourth-round pick in the 2023 NFL draft, and helped them reach the Super Bowl.
Eleven years ago, Quinn was involved in a car crash in Missouri and charged with driving while intoxicated and driving without insurance.
Quinn first hit the news in high school, when he was told that a brain tumor meant he would never play football again.
