Wife of NFL Star Arrested for Attempted Lynching

Some women are very protective of their men, apparently. Take Tanya Seymour, wife of New England Patriot defensive end Richard Seymour. She finds out Richard may be cheating on her and what does she do? She tries to lynch the woman!
The wife of New England Patriots defensive lineman Richard Seymour was arrested Thursday on charges she participated in a group assault on two women early New Year’s Day, authorities said.

Tanya L. Seymour, 27, of Gadsden, is charged with two counts of second-degree lynching, Richland County sheriff’s deputies said.

Her husband is a Lower Richland graduate and three-time Super Bowl champion, who was a first-round pick out of Georgia in the 2001 NFL draft.

The victims told sheriff’s deputies they were invited to a party at a Fontana Drive home and were “assaulted and ‘jumped” about 12:30 a.m., after the women got into an argument with some people and were told to leave, according to a report.

Tanya Seymour participated in the “mob” and punched the women numerous times in the face and body, arrest affidavits say.

One victim suffered a “busted lip and contusions under her right eye and to her finger,” according to an affidavit. The other “sustained a bruise to her left arm, scratches to her face and a sprained right wrist,” according to another affidavit. That victim also had a sore scalp from one attacker pulling her hair, it says.

The victims left after the attack, the incident report says.

Both identified Seymour from a photo lineup as one of at least three involved in the attack, according to affidavits.
