Hardy called 911 and claimed he was the victim. Hardy talked to a dispatcher for more than four minutes before police arrived. He said he was the one who was being attacked.
"She hit me in the face, twice," said Hardy. "I'm trying to stay away from her. Please, send someone to help me."
The 6 foot 4 inches tall, 290-pound defensive end told a dispatcher the woman "refused to leave his apartment" and was "swinging her fists and throwing her heels" and "breaking glass."
"I can't walk through my kitchen," he said during the 911 call. "There is glass. She broke glass."
There was another call made to 911 before police were able to respond to Hardy's apartment. The call told a different story.
A woman claimed to have witnessed Hardy attacking Holder.
"Some girl is getting her (expletive) beat upstairs! I heard and saw it."
But a man who was also on the call with the woman, quickly disputed her claim and told the dispatcher that woman was drunk.
"She went from saying that she heard it to she saw it," he said.
Ultimately, it was Hardy who was arrested.
Channel 9 was there when he bonded out of jail Wednesday. He wouldn't share his side of the story.
The accuser's account of what happened was detailed in a protective order obtained by Channel 9.
It read in part, "Greg Hardy attacked me in his apartment. He choked me. I had injuries to my head, neck, back, shoulders, arms, legs, elbow and feet."
A judge ordered Hardy have no contact with the accuser as the investigation continues.
