Albert Haynesworth in police video: Brittany Jackson kicked me in groin
Former NFL star Albert Haynesworth recently decided to air out some personal drama on social media, accusing his ex-girlfriend Brittany Jackson of calling him a racial slur and physically assaulting him on multiple occasions. In a police video that was released this week, Haynesworth can be seen telling an officer that Jackson kicked him in the groin.
The footage, which was obtained by TMZ, shows Haynesworth calmly telling police on Jan. 10 that Jackson “kicked me in the nuts” numerous times.
“She kicked me in the nuts and she tried to hit me in the face (and I moved),” Haynesworth said. “She kicked me in the nuts a couple times.”
Haynesworth also told the officer that Jackson gets out of control when she drinks.
“When she drinks, I don’t know,” he said. “Like, I can see it in her eyes. Her pupils get bigger and her eye color … I can tell. Just like today, I knew it.”
Haynesworth claimed he was hanging out with some members of Jackson’s family when the former Tennessee basketball player accused him of cheating on her. He told the officer he had called the police on Jackson a dozen times in their 17-month relationship, but he chose not to press charges.
It’s unclear why Haynesworth just recently chose to take his accusations public, but TMZ previously reported that Jackson accused him of skipping out on child support payments. The former couple has a 3-year-old son together. Jackson responded with a statement last week denying that she ever used racist language and saying she was humiliated by Haynesworth’s tweets.
