Dwayne Haskins' wife charged with domestic violence for reportedly punching Steelers QB

The wife of Dwayne Haskins faces a domestic violence charge for allegedly assaulting the Pittsburgh Steelers backup quarterback earlier this month in Las Vegas, per multiple reports.

Kalabrya Gondrezick-Haskins, 23, is charged with battery and domestic violence resulting in bodily harm. She reportedly punched Haskins in the mouth after a disagreement, per an arrest report cited by KLAS-TV in Las Vegas. A piece of his tooth was reportedly found on the floor of their room at The Cosmopolitan, where the incident allegedly occurred on July 3. 

Haskins, 24, reportedly suffered injuries "substantial in nature." As well as the missing tooth, he had a split upper lip and more injuries to his mouth that required dental work, per the reports. He reportedly was taken to the hospital for a facial injury after police were called to the hotel room at around 2:30 a.m. local time. 

The two were reportedly in town for a wedding with 14 of their friends when the altercation occurred. There were reports they had recently gotten engaged, but Gondrezick-Haskins told police they were already married on March 19 after dating for 1 1/2 years and instead were planning to renew their vows, according to KLAS-TV. 

Haskins told police they had gotten into verbal arguments before, but it had never turned physical, per the report. The disagreement was over plans for social outings that night. 

The Steelers signed Haskins as a backup to veteran Ben Roethlisberger after the 2019 first-round pick was released by the Washington Football Team in December. It was a rocky end for Haskins, who lost the starting job in Washington multiple times before ultimately being cut. 

Gondrezick-Haskins played basketball at Michigan State and is the older sister of Kysre Gondrezick, a star guard at West Virginia who was drafted fourth overall by the WNBA's Indiana Fever.
