Eagles fan accused of attacking girlfriend, putting dog in microwave after Sunday's loss

A Philadelphia Eagles fan allegedly attacked her girlfriend and put their dog in a microwave oven after Sunday’s playoff loss to the New Orleans Saints.

Police told The Morning Call that Kirsten Gaskins of Philadelphia faces simple assault, harassment, cruelty to animals and possession of drug paraphernalia charges from the incident that allegedly occurred during an argument over the football game. She struck her girlfriend multiple times during the assault, according to the complaint. 

Complaint: Woman was drunk, angry about Eagles’ loss

The argument started when Gaskins was drunk and began yelling about the Eagles’ loss at the Hanover Township, Pennsylvania hotel they were staying at, according to the complaint. The two were at the hotel for a weekend trip.

Gaskins allegedly shoved the woman down on the floor and began hitting her in the face before the alleged victim pushed her off and escaped, according to the complaint. Police said she had blood on her ear and cuts on her nose and cheek when they arrived.

Police found dog in microwave oven

The dog was unharmed. Police found the Pomeranian crammed in the microwave with no room to move. It seems the microwave was never turned on.

Gaskins had threatened to kill the dog during the couple’s argument, according to the complaint. Police say they found a marijuana grinder in Gaskins‘ pocket.

A judge released Gaskins on $20,000 bail.
