Philadelphia Eagles fan Kirsten Gaskins allegedly assaulted her girlfriend and threatened to harm her dog after the team's NFC divisional round loss to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. 

Citing the criminal complaint, Manuel Gamiz Jr. of The Morning Call reported Gaskins was charged with simple assault, harassment, cruelty to animals and possession of drug paraphernalia after she allegedly attacked her girlfriend and put her girlfriend's dog inside a microwave at the hotel room they were staying in on Sunday.

She was released on $20,000 unsecured bail.

Gamiz provided a timeline, noting the victim said Gaskins pushed her to the floor and began striking her face. Gaskins also allegedly threatened to kill the dog—which police found unharmed in the microwave—if the victim left the room.

Gaskins refused to talk to police, and the drug charge came when they found a marijuana grinder in her jacket after taking her into custody. Police said they saw blood on the victim's ear and an abrasion on her nose and cheek.

As for the game that angered Gaskins, the Eagles had the opportunity to win on their final possession before Marshon Lattimore intercepted Nick Foles’ pass that hit Alshon Jeffery in the hands. New Orleans advanced to the NFC Championship Game with the 20-14 win.
