Halloween Hot Water Ends College Career of Jonnu Smith ~by Legal Pub

A Florida International University football player got in hot water.  Unfortunately, the reason why he was in hot water was because his pregnant girlfriend poured the water on him.  While not covered in many mainstream media outlets, this event was a serious assault, if true.  The injuries from the boiling water will prevent the victim from playing again in college. It is uncertain whether Jonnu Smith will ever have a chance to realize his dream of playing in the NFL.  

So why would his pregnant girlfriend, Mary Gaspar, throw boiling water on him?  The incident allegedly occurred after the couple had an argument on Halloween night.   Jonnu Smith, a tight end for FIU,  – was arguing with Gaspar, who is five months pregnant.  Mary's primary complaint was that she wasn't getting enough attention from Smith. After the last argument, Smith returned to his dorm on campus.  Gaspar then allegedly went to the dorm and poured a boiling pot of water on Smith. 

Gaspar told police that she was feeling “emotional and stressed.” Gaspar hit Smith with the water because Smith did not react properly to her words. Smith sustained severe burns to various parts of his body, including his head, neck, back and arm. Gaspar was charged with aggravated battery and released on a pre-trial release order.

Smith has officially been ruled out for the rest of the FIU season. Smith was projected to be selected in the late rounds of April’s NFL Draft. The tightend caught 39 passes this season for 441 yards and three touchdowns.  Smith has 175 career catches for 1936 yards and 17 touchdowns.
