Despite the dismissal of 26-year-old Carolina Panthers’ defensive end Gregory Hardy’s domestic violence case on February 9 in Charlotte, North Carolina, the National Football League has announced that it will still investigate the personal life of Hardy to find out if he violated the league’s personal-conduct policy, according to a report by the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
The case was reportedly dismissed because the prosecution panel was unable to get hold of Nicole Holder, the plaintiff in the case and Hardy’s ex-girlfriend, even after multiple tries to contact her via various media. Therefore, she was unable to testify against Hardy that day.
“Reliable information” from the district attorney’s office indicated that Holder and Hardy may have been able to come to a civil settlement agreement.
Hardy was convicted last year of assaulting and threatening Holder’s life and had appealed the ruling.
