On Wednesday night, Earl Thomas took to Instagram and posted a video that stated he would would be on TMZ the following day for an incident involving his wife and things did not look good for him.
“I guess I’ll be on TMZ in the morning somehow they got a police report with details … Obviously this is not how I wanted my birthday breakfast to start out or my birthday but it is what it is ..” he wrote on Instagram.
“I just wanted to get ahead of it. It’s really not anybody’s business,” Thomas said. “It pisses me off that it got out, but it’s the world we live in today. But instead of talking about us, just keep us in your prayers.”
As it turned out, it was his wife who was the aggressor in the matter.
“It’s all spelled out in court documents obtained by TMZ Sports … detailing a violent April 13 altercation involving the Baltimore Ravens player, Nina Thomas and several other people.
The Austin Police Dept. responded to a home in the Austin, Texas area at 3:41 a.m. after getting a call about a disturbance.
When cops arrived, they say “we observed that a black female wearing an orange sweater with a knife in her hand, later identified as Nina Thomas, was chasing a shirtless black male, later identified as Earl Thomas, with a pistol in his hand around a vehicle.”
Cops drew their weapons and ordered both Nina and Earl to the ground — and they complied without incident. That’s when the investigation began and things got WILD.”
It gets even wilder:
“Nina claims Earl, 30, left their home earlier in the day after an argument over the NFL player’s drinking. She claims Earl’s brother, Seth Thomas, picked him up.
But, a short time later, she decided to check on his whereabouts by logging into his Snapchat account — and that’s when she says she found video of Earl with another woman.
Nina says she used Earl’s Snapchat account to track his location to a nearby Airbnb rental home … and says she called up two other women to help her confront Earl at the pad. Nina also claims she grabbed Earl’s pistol, a 9mm Berreta, in the process with the intention to “scare him.”
When the women arrived at the house, they “discovered Earl and Seth naked in bed with other women.”
That’s when Nina admits she pulled out the gun and put it to Earl’s head — stating “that she took out the magazine thinking that the gun could not fire.” But, cops say Nina was “unaware that the gun had a round in the chamber.”
Cops say one of the women in the house shot cell phone video of the incident … which they say shows Nina pointing the gun at Earl’s head “from less than a foot away and it can clearly be seen that Nina’s finger was on the trigger and the safety is disengaged.”
Fortunately for Earl, cops say the Ravens defensive back was able to wrestle the gun away from her.”
Thomas was not arrested.
