The body cam video of Pelicans center Jaxson Hayes' arrest has been released. So has the reason the police were called to respond to a domestic violence situation.
According to reports, the police were called by a woman who said she had received disturbing text messages from her cousin. The messages claimed that Hayes was getting violent and loud.
In the video you can see Hayes attempting to keep the police out of his house before getting into a physical altercation that leads to him being tased.
From Larry Brown Sports:
TMZ obtained the Los Angeles Police Department’s body cam footage from the night Hayes was arrested. The video shows officers approach the 6-foot-11 Hayes after they responded to a domestic violence call. A woman called 911 and claimed she received “disturbing” text messages from her cousin, who allegedly told her Hayes was “getting loud and violent” and that she was afraid.
In the video, Hayes is shown confronting police about wanting to get inside his house. He told them they would need a warrant to go inside, and things eventually turned physical. Haynes appeared to shove a police officer into the outside of his house before officers used a Taser and handcuffed him. You can see the clip below:
There's been no word on whether or not the domestic violence incident involved Instagram model Sofia Jamora. The two were dating and appear to have unfollowed each other and scrubbed their social media accounts following the arrest.
