UFC flyweight Andrea Lee made headlines in June when she came to the defence of her husband Donny Aaron for sporting Nazi tattoos.
On Tuesday, MMANews obtained a police report that paints an even darker picture of the couple’s relationship.
Couple’s roommate describes violent night, history of abuse
Lee and Aaron’s roommate, fellow MMA fighter Andy Nguyen, accuses Aaron of serially abusing Lee and filed a police report describing an unhinged Aaron allegedly assaulting Lee on Aug. 4 after they watched UFC 227 in their Louisiana home.
From Nguyen’s account on the police report:
“Donny is trying to burn a cigarette on her arm and her body. She’s yelling to stop trying to burn her.
“I opened up the door and was like ‘Donny, leave her alone.’ He looked like he was lost. He hadn’t slept in two days. He was drinking for two f—ing days straight. I don’t know what he is on. I’m backing up as he is coming towards me. Andrea was buttoning up her shorts and she was barefoot and ran out the back door.
“It’s f—ed up because Donny used to be a cop. He’s f—ed up in the head. He was making her do things to try and fake evidence that she was cheating. He was trying to get her to pull her pants off and take pictures to send to a guy so it looked like she sent it. He’s f—ed up in the head.
“They had been arguing all week. She couldn’t train because he kept her home. He wouldn’t let her leave. I didn’t call the cops until it got physical and I couldn’t do nothing anymore.
Aaron a convicted killer in shooting death
Aaron, a former police officer, has a history of violence and was convicted in 2009 of negligent homicide with a firearm after shooting an unarmed man seven times. He escaped more serious charges of manslaughter that could have landed him in prison for 40 years.
June’s controversy arrived when Lee posted a picture of herself with Aaron on Instagram. Aaron’s arms were exposed in the photo, revealing a swastika tattoo near his elbow.
Lee defended Aaron over Nazi tattoo
Lee made waves when she issued a vehement defence of Aaron, calling his critics “sensitive ass mofos.”
“Neither one of us are racists, we have an Asian & a black guy that live with us! Oh my gosh guys it’s a tattoo he got when he was in prison, get over yourselves. He covers them up all the time & we happen to have a lake day and it makes an appearance. Sensitive ass mofos.”
Aaron then apologised on Twitter before Lee issued an apology of her own for her initial reaction to the response to the photo.
Aaron stands accused of false imprisonment and domestic abuse and battery, but has yet to be charged as he fled the scene, MMANews reports.
Lee is not cited in the police report. An active Twitter user, she has not posted on Twitter since Aug. 4 at the time of this post.
Lee and Aaron have a daughter together.
