Nice Job! Our justice system prevails again! What kind of message are you sending to all that are abusing their significant others? Go ahead and beat them up...you'll get off lightly! What are you going to do the next time Tony Woods does it again and this time fractures her neck and kills her?

I disagree with this 100%....I am a Wake fan and attend alot of games, but just because your an athlete shouldnt mean you get off easy. If the man next door did this to his girlfriend, he would surely be locked up for domestic violence and serve time and probation....Not to mention all the abuse classes that he would have to take also.

BAd job of a court system upholding the law...Fairness is key, and here we are with zero!

How can you fracture someones back and it only be a misdemeanor?

DA must be a season ticket holder.

sounds like he is on his way to the NBA. 60days for "owning up to it". what a man..what a role model... having a little "thug" cred seems to help in pro sports these days.

and whats with guys beating women... a guy his size, she must have been real intimidating........he's a punk.
