Ivan Lattimore is being held without bail on charges of beating his girlfriend, WHDH Channel 7 news sports reporter, Julie Donaldson. Ivan Lattimore was arrested on June 27 after a drunken brawl with Donaldson in front of numerous witnesses.
The details of Lattimore’s abusive relationship with Donaldson came to light in Donaldson’s testimony yesterday during a hearing deciding if Lattimore poses a threat to Donaldson. Donaldson’s testimony said that she had been dating Ivan Lattimore since Thanksgiving and that they had been involved in a number of physical altercations that left Donaldson bruised, physically and emotionally.
Ivan Lattimore is a 6’4" professional athlete and, according to Donaldson and other witnesses, has punched Donaldson, grabbed her by her hair, thrown her against walls and made her punch herself in the face with her own hands. Donaldson said she has had to miss work because of the physical markings from Ivan Lattimore’s abuse.
The hearing will continue today and GroudReport will be updated with all pertinent details when they become available.
