Eagles’ Fletcher Cox chased would-be assailant off with shotgun

Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Fletcher Cox nearly experienced real-life horror last week when the ex-boyfriend of his current girlfriend showed up at his Mullica Hillm New Jersey home, damaged a vehicle and them attempted to break into the home by throwing rocks through the front window, according to Action News ABC.

Surveillance videos from Cox’s home also show the man, Corbyn Nyemah, pacing the property with a baseball ball and repeatedly trying to enter the home through the garage.

According to court records, Corbyn Nyemah showed up at Cox’s house looking for his ex-girlfriend. Nyemah allegedly damaged her vehicle before attempting to forcibly enter the home by throwing rocks through the front door.

Court records also reveal surveillance cameras at Cox’s home capturing Nyemah walking around the exterior of the property with a baseball bat and attempting to enter the garage multiple times.

After realizing that someone was attempted to break in, Cox armed himself with a shotgun and promptly called the police.

Realizing how real the situation was about to get, Nyemah hopped into his Porsche and fled which immediately led to a police chase after he was spotted driving erratically. The chase ultimately ended at the Commodore Barry Bridge and Nyemah was later apprehended by U.S. Marshals.

Nyemah posted bond and was released, later denying the attack.

A judge has since granted a temporary restraining order for Nyemah’s former girlfriend and he is expected back in court at the end of this month.

A blue tarp still adorns the front door of Cox’s home.
