Wood Haris is known for his role as Avon Barksdale on the hit HBO series “The Wire,” will not face any criminal charges after allegedly beating his girlfriend. However, his girlfriend is now seeking further legal action. The incident took place back in April in Philidelphia when Woods’ girlfriend of two years, Anya Richardson, claims he flew into a violent rage that landed her in the hospital.
Based on the police report, obtained by TMZ, Richardson claimed he struck her multiple times in the stomach, neck, and ribs. Richardson also says he spat on her face and choked her. Woods’ girlfriend reached out to TMZ and gave a statement claiming Woods’ invited her to Philly where he was shooting “Creed II.” She tells them they were in his hotel room when the unprovoked attack allegedly went down.
A representative of Wood tells TMZ on his behalf, “The account by this woman is pure fabrication. Wood was never questioned by the authorities and that should speak to the authenticity of the accusation. No further comment.”
The story is still unfolding.
