Trevor Bauer shares video of accuser Lindsey Hill 'uninjured and smirking' in bed with him the day after alleged assault
Lindsey Hill alleged that Trevor Bauer had left her face scarred from fingernail scratches that 'covered my entire cheek and chin'
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Lindsey Hill was pictured in bed with the LA Dodgers pitcher, Trevor Bauer, the morning after the second alleged assault, grinning sheepishly into the camera after accusing him of sexual assault earlier this year.
In her lawsuit for domestic violence restraining order in June 2021, Lindsey Hill, 29, said the encounter left her wounded and abused. She claimed in her application that during intercourse, Bauer had hit her in the face, splitting her lip. She also claimed that Bauer, 31, had left her face scarred from fingernail scratches that "covered my entire cheek and chin." The video, which was recorded in the wee hours of May 16, 2021, has been included in Bauer's most recent court document, a move to dismiss Hill's counterclaim in response to the pitcher's defamation lawsuit against her and her attorneys in April, as reported by Daily Mail.
In connection with the defamation lawsuit, Bauer's attorneys obtained documents from the Pasadena Police Department that were used in the course of an investigation into a criminal complaint Hill made against Bauer in May 2021. The video footage was recognized by the police department as they stated: "The Pasadena Police Department recently produced a videotape that Ms. Hill took of herself shortly after the May 16, 2021 encounter where she appears to be willingly in bed with a sleeping Mr. Bauer, and is smirking and uninjured."
The Los Angeles District Attorney's office released the following statement after the police investigation was completed in February: “After a thorough review of all the available evidence, including the civil restraining order proceedings, witness statements, and the physical evidence, the People are unable to prove the relevant charges beyond a reasonable doubt.” Despite this, the MLB declared in April that Bauer would be penalized for breaking its domestic violence policy by being suspended for 324 games which are two full seasons in the sport.
The same month, Bauer filed a defamation lawsuit against Hill, alleging that she had "fabricated allegations of sexual assault" in an effort to "extract millions of dollars" from the situation by launching a "media blitz" and trying to extract false and defamatory statements. According to the lawsuit, “the damage to Mr. Bauer has been extreme” following her claims he had choked her into unconsciousness, punched her several times, and sodomized her without her consent.
Hill responded by filing a countersuit, accusing Bauer of sexual abuse and restating her earlier allegations over the two nights they spent together at his Pasadena house on April 22 and May 15, 2021. She vehemently disagreed with the Pasadena Police Department's documents being subpoenaed by Bauer's legal team as well, which contain the Instagram communications and the video of them in bed.
