Woman details allegations against Chiefs’ Willie Gay

OLATHE, Kan. –Court papers filed Friday in Johnson County detail what the ex-girlfriend of Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Willie Gay says happened before his arrest.

On Friday, Gay’s ex-girlfriend, who is the mother of his son, was granted a temporary protective order. FOX4 is not naming the woman at this time.

Gay was arrested late Wednesday night and taken to Johnson County Jail early Thursday morning, according to the sheriff’s office.

According to the charging documents, Gay faces one count of criminal damages under $1,000. He is charged with property damage, including a vacuum cleaner, wall and door frame, and the incident is believed to be related to domestic violence.

In his initial court appearance on Thursday, Gay pleaded not guilty. He obtained a personal recognizance and was released from prison the same day.

Court documents from the protective order share the woman’s perspective on what happened that night before Gay was arrested.

The woman said she texted Gay around 9 p.m. Wednesday and told him not to come see the baby because he was sleeping. She said he insisted on coming anyway.

She asked him not to wake the baby because he had been grumpy all day. Court documents say Gay made jokes about being a single mother. The two started arguing, she said.

The woman said she went to her room and called a friend. He advised her to call the police and she stayed on the line waiting for the officers.

“Willie kept yelling, insulting me and saying he would be gone before the police arrived, court documents say. “He then got angry, snatched my phone from me and hung up on the officer.”

The woman said Gay then aggressively pushed her into the couch and knocked everything off her counter and bar, as per the protective order. He also allegedly threw his vacuum cleaner about 20 feet into his apartment and threw his phone.

She said Gay left the house before the police arrived.

“My son slept on the couch all the time,” the woman said. She said the baby was born prematurely and is currently on oxygen all day.

The woman also details what she considers to be the “worst incident,” which occurred in November 2021 at Overland Park Regional Medical Center. She said their son was in the hospital on a ventilator and she was holding him.

The boy’s mother says Gay got upset, got up and allegedly pushed her as she sat in a chair holding the baby. Court documents say the baby nearly fell out of her arms.

She also alleges that Gay has previously threatened to slap and/or hit her and fears for her safety.

FOX4 has reached out to Gay’s attorney in the case, Ryan Ginie. He denied the woman’s allegations and said they would deal with the matter in court. He made no further comment.

When Gay was charged Thursday, a Kansas City Chiefs spokesperson said the club was aware of the incident but had no further comment at this time.

On Friday, coach Andy Reid said Gay will play Sunday when the Chiefs face the Buffalo Bills.

The woman has requested sole legal custody of her son until the expiry of the temporary protection order, which is in effect until a final order is served or the court terminates it.

She also asked Gay to supervise parenting time in a public space with a court-elected supervisor, according to court documents. The court ordered him not to have contact with the boy’s mother.

A hearing on the protective order is scheduled for February 1. Gay’s next court appearance on the misdemeanor charge is set for March 2.
