Pryor played for the Jets during the 2018 season. He played in six games and put up 14 receptions for 235 yards and 2 TDs. His stay with the Jets was short but impactful.
Pryor wasn’t able to land on a team for 2019 and has returned home to Pittsburgh. He lives in Heinz Lofts the Strip District of Pittsburgh. The Strip District has a crime rate that’s 45% lower than the national average. It’s a very good neighborhood where the wealthy in Pittsburgh tend to live.
Pryor lived with his girlfriend Shalaya Briston. When the incident occurred both Briston and Pryor were placed under arrest. Pryor had stab wounds in his chest and shoulders. The police were called by a neighbor who was concerned that an argument would escalate, it did.
The Neighbor claims the ex-Jet would often hit Briston and was worried about the girl’s safety. The neighbor claimed Briston would often have bruises all over her body. Briston did not have any bruises when she as looked at once at the hospital.
Pryor, on the other hand, was in critical condition. Pryor is now stable and is expected to make a full recovery.
The argument began when Briston went out to a club that night with three friends, while Pryor stayed at home. When she returned home Pryor was angry. He grabbed Briston and yelled at her in front of her two friends. She reacted and stabbed Pryor.
The district attorney is charging Briston with aggravated assault and attempted homicide. Briston had her bail trial today. The judge ruled that no bail would be set for Briston.
