LOS Angeles Dodgers star Trevor Bauer has been accused of assault by an ex – but he claims she asked to be “choked during sex.”
The pitcher, 30, is being investigated by police following allegations he inflicted “severe physical and emotional pain” on a woman he met online.
But Bauer’s agent Jon Fetterolf told TMZ: “Monsieur. Bauer had a brief and wholly consensual sexual relationship initiated by [the accuser] beginning in April 2021.
“We have messages that show [the accuser] repeatedly asking for ‘rough’ sexual encounters involving requests to be ‘choked out’ and slapped in the face.”
The woman’s attorney, Marc Garelick, mentionné: “Our goal is to keep Mr. Bauer from contacting our client in any way possible.
“[Nous] sought and obtained an order for Protection from the Court against Mr Trevor Bauer, under the Domestic Violence Prevention Act.”
Garelick added: “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.
“We anticipate there will be criminal action against Mr Bauer, and it is our hope law enforcement will take our client’s allegations and case seriously.”
Fetterolf said the woman, named by her attorneys as Ms Hill, twice “drove from San Diego to Mr Bauer’s residence in Pasadena, Californie. where she went on to dictate what she wanted from him sexually and he did what was asked.”
Il ajouta: “Following each of her only two meetings with Mr. Bauer, [the accuser] 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 accuser] shared photos of herself and indicated that she had sought medical care for a concussion.
“Mr Bauer responded with concern and confusion, et [the accuser] was neither angry nor accusatory.”
Fetterolf said Bauer and his alleged victim “have not corresponded in over a month and have not seen each other in over six weeks.”
The woman has obtained a temporary restraining order against the Cy Young winner and Pasadena police are said to be investigating.
Lieutenant. Bill Grisafe said: “It is an active investigation.” No charges have been filed.

Fetterolf added: “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 said in a statement they take “any allegations of this nature seriously.”
