The Athletic reports the domestic violence restraining order that was filed against Bauer and executed on Monday includes multiple graphic images from the woman who filed the request. Bauer’s camp clarified after publication the protection order is a temporary ex parte restraining order which means that nothing has been corroborated and that her statement is taken at face value without him being given an opportunity to respond.
The woman said in the 67-page ex parte document that Bauer assaulted her on two different occasions — including punching her in the face, vagina, and buttocks, sticking his fingers down her throat, and strangling her to the point where she lost consciousness multiple times.
According to the woman, the alleged assault happened during what she said began as consensual sexual encounters between the two. According to the woman’s declaration attached to the request and obtained by The Athletic, she suffered injuries as a result of the second encounter, including two black eyes, a bloodied swollen lip, significant bruising and scratching to one side of her face, the article states.
In the woman’s declaration, signed under penalty of perjury of California state laws, she said that her medical notes state that she had “significant head and facial trauma” and that there were signs of basilar skull fracture. She also said in one of the incidents, per documents obtained by The Athletic, that Bauer penetrated her anally while she was unconscious and she did not consent to that in advance.
“I agreed to have consensual sex; however, I did not agree or consent to what he did next,” she said. “I did not agree to be sexually assaulted.”
Bauer’s agent, Jon Fetterolf, released a statement to OutKick which reads:
“Mr. Bauer had a brief and wholly consensual sexual relationship initiated by [the woman] beginning in April 2021. We have messages that show [the woman] repeatedly asking for “rough” sexual encounters involving requests to be “choked out” and slapped in the face. In both of their encounters, [the woman] drove from San Diego to Mr. Bauer’s residence in Pasadena, Calif. where she went on to dictate what she wanted from him sexually and he did what was asked. Following each of her only two meetings with Mr. Bauer, [the woman] spent the night and left without incident, continuing to message Mr. Bauer with friendly and flirtatious banter. In the days following their second and final encounter, [the woman] shared photos of herself and indicated that she had sought medical care for a concussion. Mr. Bauer responded with concern and confusion, and [the woman] was neither angry nor accusatory.
“Mr. Bauer and [the woman] have not corresponded in over a month and have not seen each other in over six weeks. Her basis for filing a protection order is nonexistent, fraudulent, and deliberately omits key facts, information, and her own relevant communications. 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.”
The Athletic reports that an ex parte is a temporary restraining order that does not grant the other party the ability to respond. Rather, the accused is notified of the allegations and given a formal hearing.
During this hearing, the accused is notified of the allegations and given a formal hearing – scheduled for July 23 – and the opportunity to respond and refute any of the allegations at that time. Bauer’s representatives confirmed they plan to refute and defend him against the allegations at this hearing. No formal charges have been filed.
