Pittsburgh Steelers backup quarterback Dwayne Haskins lost a tooth and suffered 'substantial' injuries on July 3 in Las Vegas when he was allegedly attacked by his wife, who now faces a domestic battery charge in Nevada.
Kalabrya Gondrezick-Haskins was arrested and charged with battery and domestic violence resulting in bodily harm as a result of the alleged altercation at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas earlier this month.
Police described Haskins's injuries as 'substantial in nature,' and specified that he had bruising around his mouth, a split lip and was missing a tooth, part of which was discovered on the hotel room floor. According to police, Haskins 'would most certainly require dental work to repair his teeth.'
'I want her out of my room,' Haskins told a security officer at the hotel, according to multiple reports.
The couple told police they were married in March and were in Las Vegas to celebrate their commitment to each other with friends, according to KTNV.com.
However, they appear to have made up since the alleged July 3 altercation. On Monday, Haskins posted a picture on Instagram showing the couple kissing as she held up a diamond ring on her hand.
'Couldn't make you wait forever, for forever,' read Haskins's caption, quoting a song by Wale.
On Thursday, Haskins may have referenced reports of his wife's arrest on social media by quoting Drake's '9': 'If they don't have a story these days, they'll make one. Life always on, man, I never get a break from it.'
As Haskins told police, Gondrezick-Haskins was upset that he went to a nightclub with his friends without waiting for her and the rest of their group. Haskins said he did not remember being hit in the mouth, but did say they got into a verbal argument, according to KTNV.com.
Gondrezick-Haskins told police that she tried to break up a fight between him and one of his friends earlier in the evening, resulting in her falling and hitting the back of her head. She said she was suffering from head and neck pain, in addition to bruises on her legs, but told police she 'could not remember who, if anyone had battered her.'
According to the police report, Gondrezick-Haskins told police she was unsure how Haskins's face was injured, suggesting that one of his friends did it. When told by police that she was being accused of causing Haskins's facial injuries, she asked if it was the former Ohio State star who was accusing her.
The report says she told police Haskins could not be arrested 'because of his occupation.'
Friends of Gondrezick-Haskins told police they heard an argument between the couple and saw them 'tussling' and shoving each other.
Gondrezick-Haskins is scheduled to be back in court on August 3.
A former first-round pick by Washington, Haskins struggled over his first two years in the league and was cut last season. In addition to losing his starting job last season, Haskins was also fined $40,000 for violating the NFL's COVID-19 protocols after he was seen in public partying without a mask.
He has since signed a one-year, $850,000 deal to be a backup in Pittsburgh.
Haskins has earned over $14 million in his brief career.
