Former Pro-Footballer Faces Assault Charge, Lawsuit From Ex-Girlfriend

Curtis Jordan played professional football from 1976 to 1986

A Virginia woman claims a 62-year-old former Texas Tech Red Raiders and Washington Redskins football player turned restauranteur nearly beat her to death.

The Virginian-Pilot reported that Jamie Dale has filed a $31 million lawsuit in federal court in Norfolk against ex-boyfriend Curtis Jordan of Lubbock. Jordan also faces criminal assault charges that go to trial in March.

Jordan's attorney, James Broccoletti, dismissed the lawsuit as an attempt to hurt his client's reputation. He also told the Pilot that Dale exaggerated the extent of her injuries.

His 47-year-old ex-girlfriend lives in Virginia Beach. Dale claims that in January 2015, she had cuts on her head, bruises over much of her body and torn muscles and ligaments after Jordan beat her.

Jordan is a former Texas Tech standout who played professional football from 1976 to 1986. According to the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, he opened the first Five Guys restaurant in Lubbock.
