Allegations of physical, sexual assault against emerge

A 27-year-old woman filed a temporary domestic violence restraining order against Trevor Bauer this week, alleging the Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher hit and choked her without her consent during two sexual encounters at his home in Pasadena, California.

In the 84-page document, which USA TODAY Sports obtained Wednesday evening, the woman accuses Bauer of punching multiple parts of her body, including the side of the head, and choking her with her hair to the point that she lost consciousness. She also claims Bauer had anal sex with her without her consent. 

The contents of the temporary restraining order, which are graphic in nature, were first reported by The Athletic earlier Wednesday. The document also includes medical records and photos of injuries the woman said she sustained from one of the encounters with Bauer, including a swollen face and jaw.

USA TODAY’s policy is to not identify individuals who allege sexual crimes without their permission.

Bauer, 30, has claimed the encounters he had with the woman were “wholly consensual,” according to a statement from his attorney, Jon Fetterolf, on Tuesday. Fetterolf said the woman had asked for “rough” sexual encounters.

“Her basis for filing a protection order is nonexistent, fraudulent, and deliberately omits key facts, information, and her own relevant communications,” Fetterolf said in part of the statement. “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.”

Bryan Freedman, an attorney for the woman, said in a statement that “any suggestion that she was not the victim of assault is not only false and defamatory but, in fact, perpetuates the abuse.
