Former NFL lineman facing charges of attempted murder

Former NFL lineback Justin Bannan was arrested for attempted murder after shooting a woman in Boulder, Colorado on Wednesday.

Bannan allegedly knew the woman but police are calling the shooting random.

The charges Bannan faces include “attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault extreme indifference, first-degree assault with intent to cause serious bodily injury, and first-degree burglary,” police told the Daily Camera.

Bannan told police he was hiding from the Russian mafia and was carrying two loaded handguns and a $20 bill which tested positive for cocaine according to the police.

After attending the University of Colorad, Bannan was a fifth round pick of the Bills in 2002. During his 11 years in the NFL he also spent time with the Ravens, Broncos, Lions and Rams.
