Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Fletcher Cox is not a small man. He’s 6’4″ and tips the scales at 310 pounds. So he’s not someone who the average person would want to tangle with. But when a Pennsylvania man showed up at his New Jersey home on October 15 with a baseball bat, damaged some property, and tried to force his way into Cox’s home, the big man took no chances.
According to 6abc.com, the attacker, Corbyn Nyemah, was looking for his ex, a woman Cox is currently dating.
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.
That’s when Cox got a shotgun and dialed 911. That prompted Nyemeh to take off in his car and led police on a chase, ultimately escaping them.
As courierpostonline.com reports, US Marshals eventually caught up with Nyemeh and he’s since been charged with burglary, criminal mischief and eluding police.
Nyemah wouldn’t go on camera but didn’t deny the attack. He told me most of what was detailed in court records was true. Police say surveillance outside Cox’s hom captured much of the attempted burglary. Nyemah says he wanted to talk to his ex-girlfriend who he dated for 2 yrs. pic.twitter.com/roKUWTaFcu

Nyemeh is now out on bail and a judge has issued a restraining order against him (he “allegedly sent her a photo by text while brandishing a firearm after the police pursuit”). As pieces of paper don’t always persuade crazed individuals to leave their targets alone, it’s good that big #91 has the means to effectively protect himself and his girlfriend should Nyemeh decide to pay Cox’s home another visit.
