Arrest warrant issued for Gators Wondy Pierre-Louis

GAINESVILLE -- The Gainesville Police Department issued an arrest warrant on Sunday for former Gators football player Wondy Pierre-Louis after his girlfriend filed a sworn complaint, alleging domestic abuse.

According to police, Pierre-Louis allegedly attempted to strangle his girlfriend early Sunday morning after forcing his way into her apartment. He faces five felony counts: domestic battery by strangulation, burglary, battery, false imprisonment and hindering communication to law enforcement. Pierre-Louis, who played high school football in Naples, told the Southwest Florida News-Press on Sunday, "It's a lie. We will go through a process to prove it's a lie."

A native of Haiti, Pierre-Louis recently learned that his family's home in Haiti was destroyed during last Tuesday's earthquake. Pierre-Louis said that his immediate family escaped serious injury.

Pierre-Louis completed his football eligibility this season and is a few credit hours short of graduation.

According to police, Pierre-Louis allegedly cornered his girlfriend in her apartment's bathroom and said, "I could kill you." She escaped and called for help, according to police.
