Shortly after Thomas posted the message, TMZ published a report that detailed the situation. According to police reports, Earl left their home after getting into an argument with Nina and was picked up but his brother, Seth. Later in the day, Nina checked into Earl's Snapchat and saw that he was with another woman. She was also able to find out his location, an Airbnb rental in Austin, Texas. Once she pinpointed where Earl was at, she took his 9mm Berreta and called up two women to accompany her to confront her husband. Nina said she brought the gun to "scare him."
When they arrived at the Airbnb, they "discovered Earl and Seth naked in bed with other women."
Nina admits that she then pointed the gun at her husband's head, thinking "she took out the magazine thinking that the gun could not fire." Police later found out that there was a bullet in the chamber. Footage that was shot by one of the women that accompanied Nina was reviewed by cops, who said that the gun was "less than a foot away" from Earl's head. They added, "it can clearly be seen that Nina's finger was on the trigger and the safety is disengaged."
Police say that Earl was able to get the gun away from Nina, who was later arrested. She was charged with burglary of a residence with intent to commit aggravated assault with a deadly weapon but was freed on bond, TMZ reports. The two other women were also arrested. The Ravens player told cops that his wife struck him multiple times as he attempted to get the gun away from her. A woman that was at the house with Earl and his brother Seth alleged that Nina threatened her and the others with the gun and told them that she had "something for all you hoes."
Thomas didn't provide his side of the story but will presumably get into it all during his interview with the publication. "Obviously this is not how I wanted my birthday breakfast to start out or my birthday but it is what it is," Thomas, who's turning 32 on Thursday, May 7, wrote of the April 13 incident.
"I just wanted to get ahead of it," Thomas said in a video that accompanied the post. "I mean, it’s really not anybody’s business. It pisses me off that it got out, but it’s the world we live in today. But instead of talking about us, just keep us in y'all prayers. Stuff like this happens, bro. We try to live the best life we possibly can but sometimes it don't go as planned. Just pray for us as we go through this stuff. We've been talking. I'm seeing my kids, so just keep us in your prayers."
