What Happened to Rhonda Worthey, Troy’s First Wife?

Not long after her divorce from Aikman was finalized, Rhonda Worthey was found in breach of the law. It happened in August 2012, and she got arrested for public intoxication after cops found her in a high school parking lot in Texas.

It was on a Monday morning, and officers of the Murphy Police Department were dispatched to McMillen High School because a suspicious car was sighted in the school parking lot. 

When they arrived, the cops found Worthey in the driver’s seat with the ignition turned off. The police reported that she had “fumbled” out of the vehicle with “a strong odor of alcohol” coming from it. 

Though her words were slurring, Worthey denied being intoxicated. However, according to the cops’ report, she could barely control her body’s movement.

In the end, she refused to step out of her car. The officers had to “forcefully” remove and detain her after they deemed her a danger to herself and others. 

In a video that captured Worthey’s arrest, she can be heard saying: “If you do this, it’ll be on the TV… it’s going to hurt Troy; it’s going [to] hurt me. Is that what your goal is?”

In her car, two bottles containing a yellow liquid that smelled like alcohol, a prescription drug used to treat seizures and panic attacks, and a small dog were found. Worthey was later transported to the police station and then released afterward. 

A man who claimed to have been dating her said she had been on her way to her mother’s house when she lost her way, which is how she ended up in the high school parking lot. Worthey pleaded “no contest” to her charge and got 30 days of probation in exchange.

Worthey has lived quietly ever since, more focused on being a great parent to her daughters. Aikman, like many other NFL retirees, including Terry Crews, remains active in the world of sports and is doing well for himself.
