The assistant coach of the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury reportedly severed two arteries during a domestic dispute last month, but lied to police after telling him he cut himself hanging Christmas lights.
Todd Troxel reportedly got into a heated argument with his fiancee after a November 30th Phoenix Suns game, when he attempted to smoke marijuana while on their uber ride home.
Troxel’s argument with his lover came to a head when she expressed her desire to call off the engagement, resulting in him assaulting her and dislocating her finger.
Punching through a glass window in an attempt to follow her after she fled into the house, Troxel sliced his arm up.

After his fiancee called the police, Troxel was taken to the hospital and required surgery. Speaking with authorities later, he told them he cut his arms while hanging Christmas lights.
According to the New York Post, detectives later told Troxel’s fiancee that they had enough evidence to charge him with a crime, but she ultimately decided not to incriminate Troxel.
A nurse who spoke to the woman later claims that she admitted Troxel was not hanging Christmas lights at the time.
Troxel has not been charged with any crime, and the Phoenix Mercury have declined to comment on the matter.
