A bizzare story involving Vikings running back Dalvin Cook and a military sergeant hit the internet on Tuesday night. According to his agent, Zac Hiller, Cook is the victim of domestic violence and an extortion attempt by his ex.
Here's what Hiller told Pro Football Talk about the situation:
Roughly a year ago, someone unlawfully entered Cook’s house. The female who did it, is a sergeant in the U.S. military, attacked Cook in his home while he had a guest present. The invader then allegedly tried to extort Cook for millions of dollars, claiming that she suffered injuries during the course of the attack that she allegedly initiated.
Because she allegedly entered Cook’s house illegally, he had the right to defend himself, as authorized by Minnesota’s version of the Castle Doctrine. Litigation, per Hiller, has not yet been commenced, but it’s in the process of being initiated. No criminal complaints have been filed in connection with the incident.
Cook and his agent appear to be attempting to get out in front of a lawsuit filed by Cook’s military sergeant ex, Gracelyn Trimble. She is accusing Cook of assault, battery and false imprisonment.
She's also produced pictures and screenshots of DMs with Cook that appear to show him admitting to causing her injuries.
