Closed fist, pounding to the head, what a guy!

Transcript – “And we chatted in the car, and he was getting flirty. So in the car, you know, he was looking like he wanted to do a little more and then he asked me if I would undo my buttons. And I said, ‘No, because I didn’t [sic] know you.’”

Then things escalated, the woman says.

“He reached over and grabbed my hair very hard and pulled my head back. And it really took me off guard,” she said. “It was a weeknight. It was late. And I had to go.”

Despite what happened, she says she agreed to see him again.

“We were flirty, but in that flirting he grabbed my hair again – but even harder and threw me in front of him on the ground and started closed-fist pounding me in the head. Repeatedly. Until my ears were ringing,” she said. “And I started to cry … I wasn’t expecting it.”

Jian Ghomeshi: 8 women accuse former CBC host of violence, sexual abuse or harassment

One woman, actor Lucy DeCoutere, alleges she was slapped and choked without her consent.

Eight women from across Canada now accuse former CBC host Jian Ghomeshi of abusive behaviour ranging from allegations of beating and choking without consent, to workplace sexual harassment.
The allegations the Star is probing range from 2002 to the present.

Two of the women who allege they were physically assaulted also say that before the alleged assaults in his home he introduced them to Big Ears Teddy, a stuffed bear, and he turned the bear around just before he slapped or choked them, saying that “Big Ears Teddy shouldn’t see this.”

One of the women, popular Canadian television actor Lucy DeCoutere, has agreed to be identified. DeCoutere, who plays Lucy on Trailer Park Boys, recalls an incident in 2003 when she alleges Ghomeshi, without warning or consent, choked her to the point she could not breathe and then slapped her hard three times on the side of her head.

“He did not ask if I was into it. It was never a question. It was shocking to me. The men I have spent time with are loving people,” said DeCoutere, who, when she is not acting on the television show, is a captain in the Royal Canadian Air Force in New Brunswick.
