Jaguars special teams ace Kassim Osgood was attacked along with a 19-year-old woman by the woman’s ex-boyfriend in her Jacksonville home Monday night, according to Dan Scanlan of the Florida Times-Union.
The complete account of the incident from Scanlan is eye-opening.
Julian Armond Bartletto, 20, has been arrested on charges of aggravated battery, false imprisonment, armed robbery, burglary and violation of an injunction after the confrontation.
The woman Osgood was with wound up trading gunfire with Bartletto after having a gun pointed to her head. Osgood was pistol whipped. The woman was also dragged around and hit.
At one point, the woman tried to escape by leaping over a balcony to the floor below. Meanwhile, Osgood wedged a chair to the door in the room he was in and jumped out a second floor window to the lawn below. The woman and Bartletto then traded gunfire on the bottom floor.
Early in the process, Bartletto reportedly said, “What did that football player say to his girlfriend, it’s a good day to die,” in reference to ex-Florida player Chris Rainey.
Osgood, who signed with the Jaguars this offseason, reportedly escaped with only “minor bruises.”
