Falcons player arrested after fighting with wife about Facebook

Couples that don’t have Facebook accounts stay together. And this story proves it:

An Atlanta Falcons player is out on bond following his arrest earlier this week, reportedly after a fight with his wife over a Facebook friend.

Offensive tackle Quinn Ojinnaka, 25, was booked into the Gwinnett County Jail at 1:40 a.m. Wednesday on a misdemeanor charge of simple battery, according to jail records. He was released about four hours later after posting a $2,400 bond.

Ojinnaka was arrested at his home in Suwanee after he fought with his wife and spat at her during an argument over a female friend of his on the social networking Web site, Facebook, according to a police report.

The altercation happened as Ojinnaka was preparing to watch a basketball game Tuesday night, the police report said.

Ojinnaka told police his wife tried to stab him with a pen, and she said he threw her on some stairs before tossing her out of the house, the police report said.

Neither Ojinnaka nor his wife complained of injuries and declined medical assistance, police said. Had Ojinnaka not had a Facebook account, he wouldn’t have been Face-flirting with another woman, his wife wouldn’t have tried to stab him with a pen and he wouldn’t have been arrested for throwing her on (on?) some stairs.

Facebook claims it reunites friends and is a great promotional tool. But what it really does is destroys families. I just don’t know how much more proof you need of that than the above story.
