Jaxson Hayes has been one of the more productive players on the New Orleans Pelicans this season, but he has some off-the-court issues he has to deal with that started last year when he got into trouble for some legal issues after he reportedly resisted arrest.
Now, Jaxson Hayes is being sued by his ex-girlfriend, Instagram model Sofia Jamora, for “assault and battery.”
“Jamora claims Jaxson chased her all around the house and the property, grabbing her multiple times, tossing her around and dragging her down some stairs. She says he became enraged and started breaking anything he could get his hands on.”
“According to the docs, Jamora claims she locked Jaxson out of the house but he broke in through a window and she texted her cousins, begging them to call the cops.”
Her account and the day coincides with the day that Hayes was taken in for resisting arrest. Bodycam footage showed the police’s excessive contact with the big man. However, in Jamora’s suit, she claims that this was because Hayes was tampering with the scene.
Hayes, the 8th overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, is being sued for assault, battery, and infliction of emotional distress and she is coming after him for damages.
For the 2021-2022 season, Hayes is averaging 9.1 points and 4.5 rebounds a game. Both are career high averages for him.
