LOS ANGELES – Former tennis pro and current tennis broadcaster Justin Gimelstob (dob 1/26/77) of Los Angeles has been charged with assault of a male acquaintance.

Gimelstob faces a possible maximum sentence of four years in state prison if convicted as charged, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney. The tennis broadcaster faces one felony count of battery with serious bodily injury with an allegation of personally inflicting great bodily injury.

“On Oct. 31, Gimelstob allegedly attacked the man as he went trick-or-treating with his wife and son in West Los Angeles,” prosecutors said. “Gimelstob pleaded not guilty yesterday and is scheduled back in court on Jan. 31 in Department 82 of the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Airport Branch.”

LAPD’s West L.A. Department is investigating Case SA099545.

As a result, Gimelstob’s FACEBOOK page included the following, yesterday at 11:48 AM :
“On the advice of my counsel, I will not be commenting in detail regarding the evening of October 31, 2018 except that I look forward to presenting the true and complete facts concerning this matter, not only about what really happened that night, but also about the long history of Mr. Kaplan’s behavior and toxic interference in my life.”

He added, “What are the true facts about my ex-wife, Ms. Cary Sinnott’s, allegations of domestic violence against me in our dissolution action? The court makes no findings as to what incidents form the basis in facts that were included in Cary’s request for DVTRO’s (Domestic Violence Temporary Restraining Order).
I vehemently deny ever committing any act of domestic violence against Ms. Sinnott. In fact, Ms. Sinnott, with the assistance of her father, used the threat of domestic violence in an attempt to obtain my agreement on certain custody and financial matters during our dissolution proceeding.”

The statements ends, “The court makes no findings as to what incidents form the basis in facts that were included in Cary’s request for DVTRO’s (Domestic Violence Temporary Restraining Order.)”

In conclusion, he added, “I am far from perfect. I have flaws and have made mistakes in my life; however, I am not the person that has been depicted in the past month. I look forward to working through these challenges. Thank you, Justin”
