The wife of Pittsburgh Steelers backup quarterback Dwayne Haskins was arrested for domestic violence in Las Vegas on July 3.
Officers were called to the couple’s bedroom at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas just after 2:30 a.m. that day in response to reports of a battery.
Haskins was taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center where he was treated for “a major injury to his upper lip and loss of a tooth” after he said his wife, Kalabrya Gondrezick-Haskins, had beaten him in the face, according to a recent arrest report released.
Haskins told police: “I want her to come out of my room, she hit me and slit my lip,” the report said. He explained that the couple got married in March after about a year and a half of dating and then came to Las Vegas with mutual friends to celebrate with another wedding ceremony.
On July 2, Gondrezick-Haskins and his friends had planned to go to a “Magic Mike” show and Haskins went to Drai’s Beachclub & Nightclub with his friends, according to the report. Gondrezick-Haskins was upset that her husband hadn’t waited for her and her friends to go to the club with them, and the two had an argument in their bedroom in the early hours of July 3.
Haskins said the couple had had verbal arguments in the past but had never been physically, according to the report. Friends of Gondrezick-Haskins told police they heard the couple arguing and saw them jostle and push each other.
Police found a piece of tooth on the floor in the bedroom and blood on a glass on the coffee table, according to the report. Gondrezick-Haskins denied hitting her husband, but police said she “appeared to be hiding information” and assumed he must have had a fight with one of her friends.
Haskins said in an Instagram post on Thursday that he had not lost all of his teeth.
“I appreciate the worry… However, I have all my teeth,” he wrote in the post. “Don’t believe everything you read.”
Gondrezick-Haskins also posted on his Instagram story on Thursday.
“You really shouldn’t believe everything you read,” she wrote in the post. “It’s sad.”
Gondrezick-Haskins played basketball at Michigan State University and, according to his biography page on the school’s website, his uncle, the late Glen Gondrezick, was a former UNLV basketball star whose number of jersey, 25, was withdrawn by the school. His father, Grant Gondrezick, played in the NBA for the Phoenix Suns and Los Angeles Clippers.
Gondrezick-Haskins was arrested on one count of domestic violence causing significant bodily harm. Court records show she posted bail on July 4 and a court hearing is scheduled for August 3.
