When Terrence Howard spouted off about Chris Brown being “a great guy” after he allegedly abused Rihanna, we didn’t realize the actor had a rap sheet of his own. In 2001, he was arrested on suspicion of assaulting his then-estranged wife, Lori McCommas. Howard allegedly threatened her over the phone by saying, “Don’t disrespect me by hanging up on me or I’ll come over and hurt you.”
According to documents obtained by The Smoking Gun, he did just that. He not only broke down his wife’s front door but also “grabbed the victim’s left arm and punched her twice with a closed fist in the left side of the face.”
Howard was booked on suspicion of simple assault, making terroristic threats, harassment and stalking, and disorderly conduct — and he pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct in 2002. Howard and McCommas are separated.
