Trevor Bauer accuser provides graphic details and photos of alleged assault
The woman accusing Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer of assault provided photo evidence and graphic details in a 67-page document filed as part of a restraining order.
The document, obtained by Brittany Ghiroli and Katie Strang of The Athletic, includes allegations of two separate assaults, and the woman alleged that Bauer strangled her to the point of losing consciousness multiple times. She adds that the encounters, which began consensually, also included Bauer punching her in the face, vagina, and buttocks, and also sticking his fingers down her throat. In one of the incidents, she alleges that Bauer penetrated her anally while she was unconscious, which she never consented to.
Medical notes provided also state that the woman suffered “significant head and facial trauma.” A hearing is scheduled for July 23 to give Bauer and his camp the opportunity to respond to the allegations.
“I agreed to have consensual sex; however, I did not agree or consent to what he did next,” the woman says. “I did not agree to be sexually assaulted.”
The report from The Athletic contains a number of other graphic details. There are also descriptors of the photos, which depict the woman with a visibly bruised and swollen face, a bloody lip, scratches to her face, and a swollen jaw. Also presented to the court is her account of a recorded conversation she had with Bauer with the assistance of the Pasadena Police Department in which Bauer admitted to repeatedly punching her in the buttocks before trying to change the topic when she stated she had not consented to that.
Bauer, the reigning NL Cy Young winner, has denied the allegations. Bauer’s attorney says they have messages proving the encounters were wholly consensual. They also say that the woman reached out to Bauer seeking “rough sex” and to be choked out by him.
“Mr. Bauer had a brief and wholly consensual sexual relationship initiated by [the woman] beginning in April 2021,” Bauer’s agent said in a statement. “We have messages that show [the woman] repeatedly asking for ‘rough’ sexual encounters involving requests to be ‘choked out’ and slapped in the face. In both of their encounters, [the woman] drove from San Diego to Mr. Bauer’s residence in Pasadena, Calif. where she went on to dictate what she wanted from him sexually and he did what was asked. Following each of her only two meetings with Mr. Bauer, [the woman] spent the night and left without incident, continuing to message Mr. Bauer with friendly and flirtatious banter. In the days following their second and final encounter, [the woman] shared photos of herself and indicated that she had sought medical care for a concussion. Mr. Bauer responded with concern and confusion, and [the woman] was neither angry nor accusatory.
“Mr. Bauer and [the woman] have not corresponded in over a month and have not seen each other in over six weeks. Her basis for filing a protection order is nonexistent, fraudulent, and deliberately omits key facts, information, and her own relevant communications. Any allegations that the pair’s encounters were not 100% consensual are baseless, defamatory, and will be refuted to the fullest extent of the law.”
The Dodgers have confirmed they are aware of the allegations. MLB is currently investigating.
