A judge has dismissed an emergency protective order filed against Rajon Rondo by the mother of his children after the NBA player and former University of Kentucky star was accused of pulling a gun on his family in May at their Louisville home.
Jefferson County Family Court Judge Angela Johnson dismissed Ashley Bachelor's protective order against Rondo on June 16 after both parties "reached an agreement," according to court documents obtained by the Courier Journal.
No further details of the agreement were made public.
Bachelor applied for and was granted an emergency protective order against Rondo and temporary custody of their two children on May 13. Rondo was ordered to stay at least 500 feet away from the family and to surrender any firearms in his possession to the Jefferson County sheriff.
Bachelor's EPO application stemmed from a May 11 incident at her home. According to a statement she provided to authorities, Rondo became "enraged and violent," threatened to kill her and brandished a gun in front the family. She also accused him of damaging property at the residence.
At one point during Rondo's alleged outburst, he was "yelling and cursing at both children, demanding to know why they were scared of him and effectively holding them at gun point," Bachelor said in her statement.
Bachelor told authorities that she chose to contact Yvette Gentry, former interim chief of Louisville Metro Police, instead of dialing 911 for fear "of what Rajon might do if a formal report was made."
"I am extremely fearful for my safety and for the safety of my children," Bachelor said in her statement. "Rajon has a history of volatile, erratic, explosive behavior."
Gentry and Rondo's parents both came to the house and tried to diffuse the situation, but Rondo "could not be calmed down," according to Bachelor's statement. She told authorities that he eventually allowed both children to reenter her house, and, some time later, Gentry "confirmed that Rajon had left and that she now had possession of his gun."
Neither Rondo nor his attorney returned the Courier Journal's request for comment when TMZ first reported Bachelor's emergency protective order in May. At the time, the Courier Journal could find no record of criminal charges filed in connection with the incident.
In a statement to ESPN after Bachelor applied for the protective order against Rondo, NBA spokesperson Mike Bass said the league was "aware of the report" and "in the process of gathering more information."
Rondo, 36, started his 16th NBA season playing for the Los Angeles Lakers but was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers in January. He is an unrestricted free agent this summer.
A former Eastern High School star, Rondo finished his prep career at Oak Hill Academy in Mouth Of Wilson, Virginia, before playing at the University of Kentucky from 2004-06.
The Louisville native was a first-round pick in the 2006 NBA draft and has played for nine teams during his professional career, winning two league championships.
