I think it’s time for Big Al to get out of Utah. I’m not judging but Al’s girlfriend is 12 years older then him and is 5’7 & 170lbs. To each his own I guess. That mugshot is scarier than any NBA player mugshot I can recall.
The live-in girlfriend of Utah Jazz center Al Jefferson was arrested in a domestic dispute after authorities say she bit the 6-foot-10, 265-pound player.
Shirley Lewis was booked into Salt Lake County jail late Thursday, records show. She was later released.
Prosecutors were reviewing possible separate charges against Jefferson, Cottonwood Heights police Sgt. Dan Bartlett said Friday.
Jefferson, 26, and Lewis, 38, were having an argument at about 8:45 p.m. Thursday “when she hit him and bit him on the back” in front of her two children, according to a police report. It offered no other details.
Lewis, who was described in jail records as 5-foot-7 and 170 pounds, was booked on one charge of domestic assault and a second charge of domestic violence in the presence of a child, both misdemeanors.
