Florida International University football star, Jonnu Smith had his college career ended in an attack from his pregnant girlfriend, but he hopes to recover in time to make it to the NFL. He was allegedly attacked by his 20-year-old girlfriend, Mary Gaspar, who poured boiling water on him on October 31.
Gaspar, who is five months pregnant, told police she was ‘feeling extremely emotional and stressed’ and added she and Smith had argued throughout the day about their relationship, the Miami Herald reports.
Smith suffered severe burns and had to be hospitalized after the incident.
Gaspar was arrested two days later. She has since pleaded not guilty, and was released on a pretrial order.
