Chilling allegations against Bauer detailed in restraining order

By , Audacy Sports

The disturbing allegations of sexual assault against Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer are detailed in court documents published by a news outlet on Wednesday.

An accuser identified as a 27-year-old woman lays out accusations of assault by Bauer, on two separate occasions that began as consensual encounters, in a request for a restraining order which was obtained by The Athletic.

The 67-page document includes graphic images showing the victim bruised and bloodied, according to The Athletic's Britt Ghiroli. The encounters with the 2020 National League Cy Young Award winner left the alleged victim with "significant head and facial trauma," including a skull fracture, the victim claims.

Bauer's reps declined to comment for the story, the report said, instead citing a statement released on Tuesday by his agent claiming the relationship was consensual and their text message history proves as much. A spokeswoman noted that the temporary ex parte restraining order was issued with the claims taken at face value, and without allowing for Bauer to respond. A court date was set for July 23, when Bauer's team said it planned to refute the allegations.

In the restraining order document, the alleged victim says she twice drove from where she lived in San Diego to Bauer's home in Pasadena, after they had met online. They had consensual rough sex, she says, but Bauer escalated things beyond what she wanted or asked for, including choking her until she was unconscious, and penetrating her anally and punching her repeatedly while she was unconscious.

She says she was diagnosed with an acute head injury and deemed to have been assaulted by manual strangulation, the report said.

Police in Pasadena confirmed the alleged assaults were being investigated, The Athletic reported.
