Hours before Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher murdered his girlfriend and took his own life, Police were called to check on a suspicious vehicle around 3am. Belcher and his girlfriend had argued around 1am, and Belcher was found asleep in his Bentley 2 hours later. "We're just trying to cut you a break here." one office said as Jovan was still seated in the car. Another is heard saying, "You live right here? You just need to go upstairs, dude" and "You know you got a lot to lose." Belcher doesn't exit the vehicle until later in the video, where he's seen talking with officers before thanking them and leaving. Hours later, both him and girlfriend would be dead. var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
