Drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the 1st round of the 2020 draft, Gladoni signed with the Cardinals on March 16 when he was acquitted of the attack a week earlier, an alleged violation that led to his release by the Vikings in 2021.
New details emerged Monday afternoon in Dallas, including the location and time of the crash – around 2:30 a.m. along a Udal Rogers Freeway Service Road adjacent to Allen Street. Authorities declared Gladney and an unidentified woman dead at the scene.
While the investigation is still ongoing, officials point out that speed could be a contributing factor.
