CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The woman accusing Carolina Panther's star Greg Hardy of assault said their argument stemmed from a short-lived relationship she had with the rapper Nelly, according to court documents. 
 
Hardy had been upset with the relationship for a while and that he snapped early Tuesday morning while the two were in bed together, court documents indicated. 
 
"The victim advised the defendant physically threw her into the floor and then tossed her into the tile bathtub," court documents said.

Police said they saw multiple scrapes and bruises on Nicole Holder when they interviewed her after arriving at Hardy's apartment building. 
 
The drama surrounding the case didn’t stop with Hardy. 
 
A judge dismissed a request for a restraining order filed by Holder after she failed to appear in court. 
 
At the same time, her attorney Stephen Goodwin withdrew from the case citing irreconcilable differences with Holder. He wouldn't say what led to the break up.

Also, a judge expanded the conditions of bond Thursday that allowed Hardy to be released from jail.
 
Judge Becky Tin modified Hardy's bond to require that he turn over all of his guns and firearms to police.
 
Holder had claimed he had a cache of weapons in his apartment.  
 
Hardy's next court date is scheduled for June.

Bradley will have more on what the warrants revealed at 6 p.m. on Channel 9.
