Los Angeles Dodgers Pitcher Trevor Bauer Being Investigated By Police for Alleged Assault
Los Angeles Dodgers Star Pitcher Trevor Bauer is Being Investigated By Pasadena Police for Alleged Assault.
As noted by Washington Post, Los Angeles Dodgers star pitcher Trevor Bauer, 30, is being investigated by Pasadena police after a woman obtained a temporary protective order following an alleged assault, as said by the police spokesman.
According to women's attorney Marc Garelick, the woman sought an order of protection from a court under domestic violence prevention law. Further, Garelick added, the victim suffered severe physical and emotional pain in the recent incident.

According to TMZ, Pasadena police spokesman Lt. Bill Grisafe said through an email late Tuesday that the department is looking into allegations of an assault involving Mr. Bauer, but he did not elaborate in detail.
A spokesperson for the Dodgers said no charges had been filed since the team was made aware of the allegations. Meanwhile, they immediately contacted Major League Baseball, which will handle this matter.
Bauer's attorney, Jon Fetterolf, released a statement denying the allegations as "baseless" and "defamatory" and claimed that any physicality between Bauer and his accuser was part of a "consensual sexual relationship."
"Mr. Bauer had a brief and wholly consensual sexual relationship initiated by [his accuser] beginning in April 2021. We have messages that show [his accuser] repeatedly asking for 'rough' sexual encounters," read the statement from Fetterolf, who also serves as Bauer's agent.

The statement also claimed Bauer and his accuser had not corresponded nor seen each other in more than a month and that "her basis for filing a protection order is nonexistent, fraudulent, and deliberately omits key facts, information, and her own relevant communications."
The UCLA alumnus is the reigning National League Cy Young winner, earning the award with the Cincinnati Reds last season. According to multiple outlets, Bauer signed a three-year contract with the Dodgers on Feb. 11 worth $102 million, including $40 million this season, the highest single-season salary in baseball history.
