Sergeant Gracelyn Trimble is taking an hiatus from social media after Twitter detectives found her account and one particular tweet showing she may have a history of violence.
The former girlfriend of Dalvin Cook sued the Vikings running back on Tuesday on allegations of assault, battery, and false imprisonment regarding a November 2020 incident. Cook and his legal team are saying that he is the victim in all of this.
Cook and U.S. military sergeant Gracelyn Trimble met in 2018 and had an on-and-off, sometimes difficult relationship. On November 19th of last year, Trimble traveled to Cook’s home gather some of her possessions. According to Cook’s representation, Trimble broke into the house with a stolen garage door opener.
Things got crazy as Cook as guests in the home. His lawyer, David Valentini, alleges that she assaulted Cook by punching him and spraying him and his guests with Mace before grabbing his gun and holding him hostage in his home. Trimble’s lawsuit claims that Cook got angry when she asked for help getting her things, “grabbed her arm, and slung her whole body over the couch, slamming her face into the coffee table and causing her lower forehead and the bridge of her nose to bust open,” according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
Twitter detectives found an old tweet showing she was threatening to murder a guy named Sheldon.
The Vikings have already released a statement regarding the lawsuits, sharing that they have already notified the NFL regarding the issue.
Cook is expected to play in the team’s next game.
