Former Arizona DB reportedly charged with manslaughter in shooting death of girlfriend
Bobby Wolfe, a football player at Arizona in 2019, has been charged with manslaughter in Texas after allegedly shooting to death a 23-year-old woman with whom he has a child.
According to ABC13, Wolfe is being held on $500,000 bail in Pasadena, Texas, after the death of Chrisheena Lee. Wolfe reportedly told officers he mistook Lee, his girlfriend at the time, for a burglar. Pasadena police say Wolfe told them he heard a break-in at the door to their apartment and grabbed his weapon. According to ABC13, investigators found damage to the apartment door but it was unclear if the damage was old or new.
Lee’s family is disputing Wolfe’s recount of events, telling ABC13 Lee had been warning that Wolfe was stalking her and “just wouldn’t leave her alone.” ABC13 was reportedly allowed inside the couple’s apartment where they observed six bullet holes in the walls of the bathroom.
Wolfe allegedly fired seven shots, six of which hit Lee. Police said he remained on the scene and cooperated with investigators. Pasadena police recovered a weapon on the scene.
The couple’s child—a 2-year-old—was with another relative at the time of the alleged incident.
A former defensive back with the Wildcats, Wolfe played one season for UA in 2019. He opted out of the 2020 season due to COVID and then left the program.
