The Will Hill story has taken a bizarre turn involving a destroyed rental home, an apparent refusal to pay for the damages and the Arena Football League.
In a column called 'Help Me Howard,' PIX 11 details the trashed rental home and failed efforts to contact Hill or collect damages.
From the Pix 11 article:
Jameelah [Williams] rented him a beautiful home there [West Orange, N.J.]. To say he trashed it is an understatement.
"I’m really disgusted with him. This is such a beautiful house," Jameelah told me back in February. "My grandparents lived here for so long. We just have so many great memories. And we really just wanted to keep the house in our family. But he destroyed it."
Jameelah says everything in the house was new before Hill moved in. But she says the former Giants defensive back made a dogs breakfast out of her family’s property. Indoor paintball games on the new hardwood floors. Maggot infestations, holes in the walls, dog feces from his four pit bulls and dirty bathtubs.
Hill and his financial advisors have to this point apparently failed to keep a promise to pay for damages.
As for the Arena Football League, Hill is apparently now on the roster of the Arizona Rattlers of the Arena Football League. Hill played for the Rattlers in 2011 before signing with the New York Giants. Now that the Giants have released him Hill has been activated from the league's exempt list by the Rattlers.
I honestly don't know what to say about any of this, so I'm just passing it along.
