AceShowbiz – Earl Thomas and his wife, Nina, are making headlines for all the wrong reasons. On Wednesday night, May 6, news broke out that Nina had been arrested in mid-April following an altercation that allegedly saw her holding the Baltimore Ravens safety at gunpoint when she confronted him about his infidelity.
The incident between Earl and Nina took place at an Airbnb rental in Austin, Texas in the early hours of April 13, TMZ reported. Court documents detailed that Earl left his family home after an argument with Nina about his drinking. She, along with two friends, later found him naked in bed with other women, prompting her to pull out Earl’s 9mm Berreta to “scare him.”
When putting the gun on Earl’s head, Nina claimed that she had “took out the magazine” and thought that it “could not fire.” Police, however, noted that Nina was “unaware that the gun had a round in the chamber.” According to police, a video from the incident showed “Nina’s finger was on the trigger and the safety is disengaged.”
Police further detailed that when cops arrived at the scene, Nina was seen wielding a knife while chasing shirtless Earl, who had a pistol in his hand, around a vehicle. Nina and her friends were subsequently arrested. She, in particular, got booked for burglary of a residence with intent to commit aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. She was later released from custody.
Before TMZ came forward with the revelation, Earl has turned to Instagram to address his April altercation with Nina. “My agent just hit me and said that I’m going to be on TMZ tomorrow from an altercation that happened with me and Nina,” he said in a recorded video. “I just wanted to get ahead of it.”
“It’s really not anybody’s business. It pisses me off that it got out, but it’s the world we live in today,” the 31-year-old continued on sharing his thought. “But instead of talking about us, just keep us in your prayers. Stuff like this happens. We try to live the best lives we possibly can. Sometimes it doesn’t go as planned.”
Nina, in the meantime, remained mum. On her behalf, her attorney Jonathan Goins insisted to TMZ that she will have her name cleared in court. “I am here to declare that my client unequivocally and categorically denies these allegations and we look forward to our day in court where we can clear her good name,” he stated.
