So if you haven’t heard by now, Trevor Bauer of the Los Angeles Dodgers has been accused of sexual assault. He is having a hearing about a restraining order potentially being placed against him by a woman who has said Bauer punched her and choked her unconscious during sex.
When I first heard this story on ESPN I said, “Come on I thought this was a family network.” Some of the details in the story are pretty graphic.
According to the woman accusing him, Bauer has some extreme sexual fetishes that she helped him live out but that it went overboard and now she is scared of him. She also casually mentions that Bauer uses Spider Tack as well- as if the allegations against him already weren’t enough.
Bauer and his attorneys say that the woman completely came onto him and asked to be choked out during sex.
One thing is clear- somebody is lying their ass off. It is unclear who at this point, but it certainly doesn’t help Bauer that he now has another accuser coming out. Another woman in Ohio also tried to get a restraining order against him at one point although she later dropped it. She also is claiming the same things- sex that went a little too crazy, including being punched and choked out.
It will be very interesting to see how this story unfolds. I was on Bauer’s side at first thinking that this could just be some weirdo trying to extort him for money, but after the story came out about another woman accusing him I’m starting to flip to the other side.
