Holmes yanked his hand away and a “verbal spat ensued,” the lawsuit states.
Club patrons separated the two, at which point Holmes “threw his entire glass cup of liquor at face,” the lawsuit states.
Club security took Mills outside because of her injuries. While outside, the lawsuit states, Mills asked a police officer to arrest Holmes.
Holmes then asked to speak to Mills and told her he plays in the NFL and “could not get into trouble,” the lawsuit states.
According to a civil lawsuit filed last week in Florida and posted online by Courthouse News Service, a legal news wire, Holmes threw the glass into the face of Anshonoe Mills, cutting her near the eye, at Rain nightclub in Orlando on March 7.
Mills contends Holmes attacked her because he wanted a place on a couch in a VIP area of the club.
Orlando police Sgt. Barbara Jones said the department took a statement from Mills but that the police report is not finished. She declined to divulge details of Mills’ statement or say when the report would be completed.
