There is so much f*ckery in this story we know not where to begin. Florida International Univeristy tight end and NFL prospect Jonnu Smith was arguing with his pregnant girlfriend when she decided that pouring boiling water over him was the best way to make her point.
The burns Smith suffered cost him his college career since he’s a senior and his season is now over.
Reports the Miami Herald:
The college career of FIU senior tight end Jonnu Smith, the team’s premier offensive player over his four seasons and easily the Panthers’ best 2017 NFL Draft prospect, ended on Halloween when his girlfriend doused him with boiling water. According to the arrest affidavit, Smith suffered severe burns on his head, neck, back, a shoulder and an arm.
Miami Gardens resident Mary Gaspar, five months pregnant with Smith’s child, was charged with aggravated battery. Gaspar entered a not guilty plea. She’s been released on a pretrial release order.
Son… But, but wait it gets worse.
According to the arrest affidavit, Gaspar gave this account at Florida International University police headquarters:
The two argued through the day over the attention Smith was paying to her and their relationship. While in Smith’s dorm room and “feeling extremely emotional and stressed,” she told police, she boiled a pot of water. Then, she walked over to Smith and poured it on him.
When Smith didn’t react strongly enough for her, she started hitting him with her open hands, she told police.
The extent of the burns aren’t known, but Smith has been seen back on campus even though he’s not fit for the football field.
Before you say, “Hey, she was pregnant, though,” don’t. We do want to hear both sides, though.
Peep Mary Gaspar’s mugshot on the flip. The crazy eye is real.
