Earl Thomas, a safety for the Baltimore Ravens, was held at gunpoint by his wife, according to police. Police said the NFL player’s wife held a loaded gun less than a foot away from his head, TMZ reported. According to the outlet, the incident occurred after Thomas’ wife Nina caught him cheating on her with another woman.
The incident occurred on April 13, according to a police report obtained by TMZ. At 3:41 a.m., the Austin Police Department responded to a call about a potential disturbance at a residence. According to the outlet, the cops said: “We observed that a black female wearing an orange sweater with a knife in her hand, later identified as Nina Thomas, was chasing a shirtless black male, later identified as Earl Thomas, with a pistol in his hand around a vehicle.”
The Incident Began After Earl Thomas’ Wife Found Him ‘In Bed With Other Women’
TMZ reported that Nina said Earl left their house earlier in the day because of an argument about his drinking. After he left the house, Nina logged into the NFL player’s Snapchat account and saw a video of her husband with another woman.
She then used the application to find his location, TMZ reported, and according to her account of the events that transpired, Earl was at an Airbnb.
When Nina arrived at the house, she “discovered Earl and [Earl’s brother Seth] naked in bed with other women,” according to TMZ. According to the report, she then pulled out a 9mm Beretta pistol and put it to the NFL player’s head. Nina stated “that she took out the magazine thinking the gun could not fire.” However, she was “unaware that the gun had a round in the chamber,” TMZ wrote.
According to the police report obtained by TMZ, Earl was able to wrestle the weapon away from his wife. Once the police arrived, Nina was arrested along with two female friends that she brought to the Airbnb with her. She was charged with burglary of a residence with intent to commit aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to the outlet.
The NFL player was not arrested.

So my agent just hit me and said that I’m gonna be on TMZ tomorrow from an altercation that happened with me and Nina.
