Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Kassim Osgood is used to dodging defenders on the gridiron. The 30 year-old NFL pro is tall, fast and comes in at a muscular 220 pounds. But what he didn't expect was to have to dodge a pistol-whipping. Osgood was allegedly attacked by Julian Armond Bartletto, the ex-boyfriend of Mackenzie Rae Putnal, a 19 year-old Jaguars cheerleader who Osgood was visiting. Putnal already had a restraining order against Bartletto.
Osgood made good use of his athletic abilities in his escape. He jumped out a second floor window and took off. It was a good thing he did. According to The Florida Times-Union, Bartletto traded fire with the cheerleader after putting a gun to her head, saying, "What did that football player say to his girlfriend, 'It's a good day to die.'" For good measure he also allegedly pulled Putnal across the room by her hair, hit her with his gun and hands and kicked her dog several times. (He sounds like a keeper.)
