If you’re wondering why Eagles fans get a bad rap, it’s because of stories like this…
According to the New York Daily News, a Philadelphia woman was arrested after assaulting her girlfriend during an angry range after watching her Eagles get eliminated from the playoffs at the hands of the Saints.
31-year-old Kirsten Gaskins attacked her girlfriend inside their room at the Best Western hotel in Hanover Township, Northampton County, going as far to even put her girlfriend’s dog inside a microwave. Luckily for the dog, it was not turned on
According to a criminal complaint –
Colonial Regional police were dispatched at 9:40 p.m. Sunday to the hotel at 300 Gateway Drive and spoke to a woman who said she had just got into an argument and fight with her girlfriend. Police could see blood on the woman’s left ear and a cut on her nose and left cheek.
The woman said she and Gaskins were staying at the hotel as a getaway, but Gaskins got drunk and began yelling at her about the Eagles’ playoff loss to the New Orleans Saints.
The woman said Gaskins began to push her, and she pushed her back so she could get away. The woman said Gaskins pushed her hard enough to knock her down, and when she was on the floor, Gaskins got on top of her and began hitting her in the face. The woman said she scratched Gaskins on the face and was able to get away.
During the argument, Gaskins told the woman that if she left the room, she would kill her dog in the room with them.
Gaskins fled before police arrived. While police and hotel security were talking to the woman, Gaskins returned and told the woman to get her stuff from the room because they were leaving.
Gaskins refused to talk to police. She was taken into custody on the assault charges, and police found a marijuana grinder in her jacket pocket.
Police went to the hotel room and checked the microwave and found a white Pomeranian dog inside.
Gaskins was released on $20,000 bail after being charged with simple assault, harassment, cruelty to animals and possession of drug paraphernalia.
