NFL star Earl Thomas held at gunpoint by his wife

Nina Thomas, wife of Raven’s safety, Earl Thomas, was arrested on Apr.13 after an argument with her husband. She was charged with first-degree felony burglary of residence with the intent to commit aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Her lawyer claims she is innocent and was wrongfully arrested. Earl was not arrested. 

The Austin Police Department received a disturbance call from the home in Austin, Texas, around 3:41 AM. When the police arrived at the scene, the police mentioned how they saw a black female wearing an orange sweater with a weapon in her hand chasing a shirtless black male. This occurred because according to Nina, she suspected that her husband Earl was cheating on her with another woman. Nina confirmed she wanted to take matters into her own hands. She checked on Earl’s snapchat and found a video of Earl with another woman. By using Earl’s Snapchat account, she managed to track down his location to a nearby Airbnb rental home, where she called two other women to help her confront Earl. 

According to Nina, she claimed that she only grabbed Earl’s pistol, a 9mm Berreta, in order to scare him. When the women arrived at the house, the three women found Earl naked in bed with another female. That was when Nina pulled out the gun and put it to Earl’s head and stated that she took out the magazine and thought that the gun may not fire. Police claim the gun had a bullet in the chamber, something Nina claims she was unaware off.

The evidence

The police stated that one of the women in the house filmed a video of the incident, which showed Nina pointing the gun at her husband’s head from about less than a foot away. It can be seen that Nina’s finger was on the trigger and the safety is disengaged. Earl saw the gun pointed at his head and flinched his head down. Not only that, but Nina struck Earl in the nose before that situation ended. The woman who Earl was cheating with, says that one of Nina’s other friends was carrying a knife and swinging it aggressively during the scene too. 

Earl expressed his discomfort with how news broke out to the public, saying it isn’t anybody’s business. After the police spoke with everyone, they arrested Nina and the other two women she brought along. Nina was charged with first-degree felony burglary of a residence with intent to commit an assault with a deadly weapon, violence, and was later bonded out for $25,000
