Alysha Newman is the gorgeous Olympian girlfriend of NFL player, Anthony Chickillo -currently a linebacker with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Alysha and the NFL player have been dating for some time but that might change after reports of Anthony assaulting Alysha have surfaced. According to the NY Post, 26-year-old Chickillo was arrested following an argument which resulted in Anthony pushing Newman.
According to Newman the argument turned physical and claimed Chickillo grabbed her “by the biceps and forced her against a wall and door” -leaving her with visible injuries. However, Anthony stated to authorities it was Alysha who hit him first so he responded by throwing her to the floor.
Chickillo was charged with simple assault, property damage and harassment.
The incident took place due to a gambling disagreement while the two were at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in southwestern Pennsylvania.
Anthony Chickillo who was born December 10, 1992; is a Florida native who previously played college football at the University of Miami. He was drafted by the Steelers in the sixth round in 2015.
