Now we have been by his aspect for the previous yr and a half, and we help the efforts he has taken to make issues proper.

“These are photos of me with a girl with whom I’ve had a loving, but in addition extremely risky, relationship for over six years. The primary image is from March of this yr. The second image is from an occasion in January. Now we have frolicked collectively on and off over the previous few years, together with as not too long ago as this previous 4th of July weekend. I cherished her very a lot, however generally love isn’t sufficient to maintain two individuals collectively.

Our relationship was not excellent. I used to be not excellent, and neither was she. My family and friends described the connection as poisonous, and, final week, I made a decision that it wanted to finish. The one motive that I’m sharing any of this personal info with you is as a result of my ex has determined to vilify me publicly by presenting photographs of a horrible accident that occurred greater than a yr and a half in the past with out telling you the entire story. It is a laborious reality to share, however I’ve taken duty in my view.

One evening in December 2021, after a collection of unhealthy selections by each of us, fueled partially by alcohol, she started to hit me with a full can of beer within the face and eyes whereas I used to be driving. Sadly, this was not the primary time I needed to defend myself from her assaults. As she escalated the scenario, I finished the truck and compelled her to get out. Whereas driving away, I unknowingly ran over her with the again wheel. I had no motive to suppose she was below my truck, and I left with out realizing that she had been injured.

Whereas her accidents from the accident have been important, they have been made exponentially worse by an an infection brought on by the IV on the hospital. For instance, the grotesque pictures of her arm that she revealed the place you may see what appears like bone was the results of an emergency surgical procedure to eliminate her staph an infection. I do know all of this, as a result of as quickly as I realized she was injured, I went to the hospital that evening. I used to be proper there beside her for a number of weeks whereas she recovered within the hospital after which after she was discharged, I helped her recuperate at residence.

Although she informed regulation enforcement, family and friends that she didn’t wish to press expenses, and that this was all an accident, I turned myself into the authorities in March 2022 as required by a state regulation.

I pled responsible to a misdemeanor for negligent vehicular harm and, after serving three days in jail for that misdemeanor, I used to be sentenced to probation. Since then, I’ve continued to carry out the group service required by the courtroom.

State regulation additionally required a restraining order to be put in place. However, as you may see within the courtroom doc posted above, she made it clear that she believed this matter was an accident, that our relationship was “stronger for the reason that incident,” and requested for it to be eliminated (which it was).

For the previous yr and a half, we now have made a number of makes an attempt to revive our relationship and rediscover the great issues that introduced us collectively years in the past. We’ve had some successes but in addition many failures, and it was clear to me that we simply can’t be collectively. Inside hours of me taking the ultimate gadgets I had on the residence we shared, she posted photographs of her time within the hospital in a intentionally deceptive approach.

I take full duty for my actions that evening in 2021 and, since then, I’ve totally complied with the authorities. I don’t consider that evening is indicative of who I’m or the person I’ve tried to be since. However, given {that a} skewed and weaponized model of occasions is now being put out to the world, I felt it was essential to share these extra details.”
