Rajon Rondo shot his family at their Louisville home


The mother of Rajon Rondo’s children was granted an emergency protective order against the NBA player after he was charged with pointing a gun at his family on May 11 at their Louisville home.

Ashley Bachelor filed a May 13 application in Jefferson County (Ky.) Family Court for an emergency protective order against Rondo. It was approved the same day by Judge Denise Brown, according to documents obtained by the Courier Journal.

As part of the order, Bachelor was granted temporary custody of his two children with Rondo, and he must remain at least 500 feet away. Additionally, Rondo was ordered to turn over all firearms in his possession to the Jefferson County Sheriff.

In her statement to authorities, Bachelor said Rondo became “enraged and violent,” threatened to kill her, and brandished a gun in front of her and their children.

TMZ first reported the Bachelor’s request.

In seeking the order, Bachelor said she was seeking “immediate protection” for herself and her children from future contact with Rondo and for temporary sole custody of the children.

“I am extremely fearful for my safety and the safety of my children,” Bachelor said in his statement. “Rajon has a history of volatile, erratic and explosive behavior.”

Neither Rondo nor his lawyer could be immediately reached for comment. The Courier Journal could find no record of criminal charges being filed in connection with the incident.
