Los Angeles Dodgers ace and reigning American League Cy Young winner Trevor Bauer could be in some hot water with authorities in Southern California.
According to TMZ Sports, an unnamed woman has accused Bauer of assault dating back to an alleged incident earlier this year.
“Our law enforcement sources say the case will likely be sent to the district attorney … where they will decide whether to file charges,” TMZ Sports noted.
For his part, Trevor Bauer denies the allegations. He claims that it was nothing more than consensual rough sex between the two adults after they met online.
Update: Details emerge about alleged Trevor Bauer sexual assault
Warning: Content is extremely graphic and disturbing
ESPN.com’s Jeff Passan and Alden Gonzalez obtained a copy of the domestic violence restraining order the woman filed against Bauer.
“I agreed to have consensual sex,” the woman said. “However I did not agree or consent to what he did next. I did not agree to be sexually assaulted.”
The grisly details reported by Passan and Gonzalez are extremely disturbing. The woman was allegedly left with two black eyes, bruises all over her body, cuts on her face, and anal bleeding. She also fell unconscious multiple times due to Bauer allegedly strangling her.
These injuries happened across multiple sexual encounters with Bauer, whose legal representatives provided texts to ESPN in which the woman allegedly was affirming his actions of slapping her in the face and making her pass out.
Restraining order issued against Trevor Bauer following assault allegations
Here was the initial statement form the woman’s attorney, as she obtained a restraining order against Bauer under the Domestic Violence Protection Act.
“The order is a result of a recent assault that took place at the hands of Mr. Bauer where Ms. Hill suffered severe physical and emotional pain,” her attorney said in a statement.
The attorney, Marc Garelick, also indicates that he expects charges against Bauer.
The 30-year-old pitcher signed a massive three-year, $102 million contract with Los Angeles during the winter. Through 17 starts this season, he’s posted an 8-5 record with a 2.59 ERA and 1.00 WHIP while striking out 137 batters in 107.2 innings.
