Judge dismisses domestic violence case against Rajon Rando

According to court documents, the woman claims Rondo pulled a gun and threatened her life in an incident in Louisville last week.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A judge has dismissed the domestic violence case against NBA star Rajon Rando Thursday afternoon.

Rondo was never charged in relation to the incident.

A Louisville woman filed an emergency protective order against Rondo in May.

According to court documents obtained by WHAS11 News, the woman claims Rondo pulled a gun and threatened her life in an incident in Louisville.

She states Rondo became “enraged” after she asked the child, he was playing video games with, to sort their laundry.

She said Rondo smashed a plate, knocked over trash cans, stomped on landscaping lights and drove through the yard.

The woman alleges when she confronted Rondo, he told her “you’re dead.”

She said Rondo left the home but then returned with a gun.

The woman said she called former LMPD interim Chief Yvette Gentry for help. She serves as the executive director of the Rajon Rondo Foundation.

She said Gentry eventually arrived at the house, but Rondo would not allow her access. The woman told police she locked herself inside with the kids. Gentry allegedly told her Rondo had left the premises and she had his gun.

A Jefferson Family Circuit Court judge granted the EPO on May 13.

In a statement to ESPN, an NBA spokesperson said they were aware of the report and are gathering more information.

No charges have been filed in connection to the incident.
