Football player's former girlfriend testifies

CALGARY - The former girlfriend of a one-time Calgary Stampeders football player says he tried to choke and smother her when she came home and found him in her bed.

Kaitlin Ward says she dated Joffrey Reynolds for six years before ending their relationship in December 2011.

She says they tried to patch things up and she allowed him to stay with her for a couple of days after his house was foreclosed on.

Ward says she and Reynolds attended a party at a bar in July 2012 and she told him he couldn't stay with her any longer.

She says the former CFL running back kicked her in the back of the leg and when she went home later he was waiting for her.

Reynolds is charged with assault causing bodily harm, common assault and break and enter.
