UPDATE: Steelers QB Haskins needing dental work after fight with wife

Kalabrya Gondrezick-Haskins charged with domestic battery, allegedly slugs QB husband in the mouth

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Dwayne Haskins will require dental work after sustaining “substantial” injuries from an alleged assault involving his wife.

Kalabrya Gondrezick-Haskins is facing a felony charge of battery and domestic violence resulting in bodily harm after she was arrested July 3 for allegedly punching Haskins in the mouth inside The Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas.

According to the police report obtained by KTNV, Haskins’ injuries were “substantial in nature.” Police found a piece of a tooth in the bedroom, and the report noted he would require stitches for a split lip and that he “would most certainly require dental work to repair his teeth.”

In the report, Haskins told police his wife was mad at him for going to a nightclub with his friends and not waiting for the entire group. He said they got into an argument in the hotel room, but he did not have any memory of being hit in the mouth.

Gondrezick-Haskins told investigators she tried to stop a fight between Haskins and one of his friends earlier in the evening. She said she had fallen to the floor during that altercation and hit the back of her head, telling police she had head and neck pain, as well as bruises on her legs. Police noted that she “could not remember who, if anyone had battered her.”

The report says she told police she was not sure what happened to Dwayne Haskins but suggested he got into a fight with his friend. Officers told her she was accused of punching her husband, and the report said she asked if he was the one accusing her. It goes on to say she told investigators he could not be arrested “because of his occupation.”

Two friends of Gondrezick-Haskins were interviewed by police as well. The report says they both heard the couple arguing. One friend said they saw the couple “tussling,” which is described as mutual shoving and pushing in the report.

According to Haskins’ Instagram and several news articles, the couple was recently engaged at TAO Asian Bistro & Nightclub at The Venetian.

Haskins was signed by the Steelers after he was released by the Washington Football Team in December and is the backup for starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. He had been drafted by Washington as the No. 15 pick overall in 2019. Haskins set records in his sophomore season at Ohio State, where he threw 50 touchdowns, one of just seven NCAA quarterbacks to do that in a season.

The couple live in Pittsburgh and were reportedly in Las Vegas to celebrate their wedding.

Gondrezick-Haskins has posted bail and is expected to appear back in court on Aug. 3.

With only days remaining before most NFL training camps open, some players have been making the news for all the wrong reasons.

The Atlanta Falcons terminated the contract of outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo after the one-time free agent was accused of a sex crime in Texas. Then, later this week, came news that free-agent cornerback Richard Sherman was arrested in Seattle on felony charges of burglary and domestic violence.
