At the very least, Dalvin Cook and Sergeant Gracelyn Trimble are in a very toxic relationship where both sides need to never have contact with each other again.
On Tuesday night, Minnesota Vikings star running back Dalvin Cook’s agent Zac Hiller claimed his client was the victim of domestic abuse and extortion, which was relayed by Adam Schefter.
Cook’s attorney, David Valentini, released a statement, stating that last November, US Military Sergeant First Class Gracelyn Trimble broke into the home of Cook using a stolen garage door opener. The woman then assaulted Cook and maced him along with two houseguests. She then armed herself with a firearm and forced Cook along with his two guests at gunpoint to remain in the residence for hours.
Trimble allegedly assaulted one of the guests, and Cook, trying to stop the attack, knocked her to the ground, resulting in “a small cut above her nose.”
Footage has since surfaced showing somebody recording the moment Trimble is threatening to get her gun and shoot Cook while he yells for her to let his hair go.
Per The Star Tribune, Trimble accused Cook of, “giving me a concussion, leaving a scar on my face and taking me through hell.” In the filing, she claims Cook “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.”
The Vikings released a statement on this development per Schefter.
“We recently received notification from Dalvin Cook’s legal representative regarding a situation that occurred between Dalvin and a female acquaintance in November 2020 and led to an ongoing dispute between the parties. Upon learning of this, we immediately notified the NFL. We are in the process of gathering more information and will withhold further comment at this time.”
