Chris Larsen CFL Ottawa

Chris Larsen the defensive lineman for the Ottawa Redblacks has been suspended by the CFL while the team and police investigate a very serious allegation that left a member of the Toronto Island LGBTQ community with significant injuries.

According to police reports, A 24-year-old man and a 27 year old woman were walkin near the ferry docks when there was a disagreement with a group of people. That is when 2 men from the group began beating David Gomez a member of the LGBTQ community.

Gomez had a crowdfunding page set up for him where he has already almost raised 35,000 dollars. He was knocked unconscious, and suffered a broken nose, cheekbone and orbital bone. He also suffered a concussion and hip injury.

The CFL’s Ottawa Redblacks posted this response on their social media page.

I cannot see Larsen sticking around on Ottawa but this is not a smart move by Larsen if he did in fact hurt Mr. Gomez. Thankfully Mr. Gomez will live.
