On June 9, 2023, Bill Bidwill Jr., the former VP of the Arizona Cardinals, found himself in a harrowing domestic dispute with his wife, Nicole Bidwill.
Disturbing police footage, recently obtained by TMZ Sports, unveils the aftermath of this altercation, revealing a bloodied Bill Bidwill.
In June, Paradise Valley, Arizona, police responded to a call reporting domestic violence at the Bidwill residence around 6 PM.
Upon arrival, the cops encountered a grievously injured Bill Bidwill, who was bleeding profusely from his facial area.
The cause of this gruesome sight soon became evident as Bill recounted the violent ordeal he had just endured at the hands of his wife, Nicole Bidwill.
In the police body camera footage, Bill can be heard saying:
“She was very upset at me… I’m sitting on the couch, and she’s screaming at me. And I was trying to not escalate because she has a very bad temper. And then she started hitting me, and I just started defending myself.”
The former Cardinals executive went on to describe how Nicole had struck him repeatedly with great force, even shattering a glass of beer over his forehead, causing a laceration.
Bill’s desperate attempt to escape the violence led him to dial 911, and it was these distressing moments that police officers documented on their body cameras.
As previously reported, Bill explained that an argument had escalated between the couple, ignited by the installation of a new carpet in their home. As he attempted to de-escalate the situation, Nicole’s anger spiraled out of control, leading to a vicious physical assault.
Remarkably, Bill expressed his reluctance to press charges against his wife, telling the officers to take him into custody instead, out of concern for her well-being.
As seen in the recent viral footage, Nicole Bidwill’s demeanor during the police intervention was notably less cooperative.
She initially refused to move from the hood of a car and was unwilling to provide information, insisting that she would wait for her daughter, who is an attorney.

When police ultimately arrested her, she resisted, forcing officers to carry her to their squad cars.
Bill Bidwill Jr.’s involvement with the Arizona Cardinals dates back to the time when his father, Bill Bidwill Sr., owned the team.
He played a prominent role in the organization for several years and was reportedly instrumental in the transition of ownership following his father’s passing in 2019.
However, it is essential to clarify that Bill Bidwill Jr. no longer holds any position within the team.
