Patrick Shanahan Domestic Violence
According to USA Today, the FBI had been investigating a violent domestic dispute from nine years ago between Shanahan and his then-wife Kimberly.
According to court filings and police reports both Jordinson and Shanahan acknowledged that on Aug. 28, 2010, they had a late night argument after both had been drinking.
During the argument, Jordinson ordered Shanahan to leave their home and began to throw his clothes and other belongings out the front door. Shanahan also told police that night Jordinson tried to light the pile of clothing on fire.
Jordinson said that before Shanahan left the house, he went to retrieve a briefcase from a closet near the bathroom where she was getting ready for bed.
“We have had arguments over this briefcase and its contents before. I did not want him to take the briefcase. I picked up the briefcase and Pat slugged me in the stomach. I stood up and he tried to hit me in the stomach twice more, but the briefcase was in the way. … Pat eventually yanked the briefcase from my hands, breaking my fingernails.”
Jordinson claimed that she called out to her son who “appeared with a baseball bat” to defend his mother. She later called the police and that’s when the confrontation ended.
Shanahan on his part claimed that after he packed his car with the clothing and other belongings tossed in the front yard he went to the bathroom to gather toiletries that had been strewn across the bathroom floor by his wife, who “continued to drink.”
“I took belongings out of my closet. When I started to carry my briefcase and other items to the car, Kim attacked me. I did not hit her in the stomach or anywhere. I tried to exit the house to put the briefcase in the trunk of my car but she wouldn’t let go. … Kim followed me outside and then punched me repeatedly in the face. I told her to get away from me and to leave me alone.”
He told the police that his wife continued to swing at him but he didn’t retaliate; “I defended myself by blocking her punches with my hand.”
According to the officers dispatched to the family home, they said that Jordinson, not Shanahan, was the aggressor, producing photographs of his bloodied nose, blood-stained hand and scratched chin. The officers also said they found no apparent injuries and noted that her description of the attack was inconsistent.
“Though she stated that she was struck in the stomach, she demonstrated she was struck on her face”. The police said and also added that Jordinson appeared to be intoxicated.
After the incidence Jordinson was arrested on a domestic assault charge. The case was dropped the following years due to “proof problems,” though Shanahan wrote in court filings that he had asked them to do so.
During an interview with USA Today in May, Jordinson maintained her version claiming that Shanahan dragged her from the couple’s home, mocked her and grabbed her wrists after he locked the briefcase in the trunk of his car.
“I was like fighting … trying to get my wrists loose, and, um, he was just shaking me, saying, ‘You’re a joke! You’re a joke! You’re a joke!’ Then I got one hand loose, and that’s when he punched me … in the stomach.”
