Greg Oden’s Arrest Breeds Sadly Predictable Twitter Reactions

Greg Oden was arrested in suburban Indianapolis on Thursday morning and charged with misdemeanor battery. According to the Indianapolis Star, the victim was Oden’s ex-girlfriend of two years, and had multiple lacerations upon officers’ arrival.

Police “observed blood, swelling to the nose, lacerations to the forehead and nose area of the victim’s face,” according to the report. They also “observed blood on the sofa and floor in the sitting area. (They) observed (blood) on the living room carpet (and) dirt from a flower pot that was knocked over.”

A contrite Oden reportedly told police, “I was wrong, and I know what has to happen.”

Not one to let a case of domestic battery go without comment (especially with another high-profile domestic abuse ripe on the mind), the Twitterverse lit into Oden with great vengeance and furious anger (and quite a bit of snark). Here are some of the hot take Twitter reactions.
