Nationals coach suspended for "revenge porn"

San Diego woman sues, investigation underway

A San Diego woman is suing the former professional baseball player and current hitting coach for the Washington Nationals baseball team, Jacque Jones, for posting nude photos of her on social media; she had sent him the photos while the two were dating.

The woman, whose name has not been released, filed her lawsuit on September 29. The Nationals have since suspended Jones while they look into the matter.

In her lawsuit, the woman says she and Jones — a San Diego native who attended San Diego High School and who now lives in Escondido — were together for eight months. While traveling for his job, Jones frequently asked the woman for nude pictures, or, as the lawsuit says, pictures of "the full tiddies."

At first she says she was reluctant to send any photos, but his persistence and promises that they would remain private paid off. During the course of the following months, the woman sent over 100 nude photos; and though her face was not in the photos, marks or tattoos made her identity known.

"U know I ain't gonna do nothing silly with [them]," read one text message from Jones assuring her that the photos were between them.

But they broke up. The woman said Jones tried to control her and was prone to fits of rage. The relationship ended on August 20, when the Nationals were in San Diego to play the Padres. Jones had obtained a sweatshirt for the woman's father. However, she refused to come get it at Petco Park.

He sent her the following text:

"First I wasn't pissed off...But now FUCK YOU...I have a flicking everyday job...Ten hours a fucking day...was trying to see where you were so I could get you your dads fucking sweatshirt...didn't have to try and come meet you...But I wanted to fucking hand it to you...yea but by the time you answered I had dropped [the sweatshirt] off and went to the stadium...So fuck you...and your feelings."

Soon after, according to the lawsuit, mutual friends began to receive the nude photos in social media messages.

The woman is also suing the Nationals team for failing to act on previous complaints about Jones.

"[The] Washington Nationals organization knew of Coach Jones's propensity and predisposition to emotionally abuse and intimidate women," says the lawsuit. "Agents, employees, and management...knew of prior bad conduct of Coach Jones involving emotional abuse and intimidation of women, which occurred before and during Coach Jones's employment with the Washington Nationals. [The team] failed to investigate, failed to train, and improperly retained Coach Jones even after it knew or should have known of his bad conduct toward women and his propensity for emotional abuse and intimidation toward women. Moreover, after learning of this specific instance in which Coach Jones illegally distributed intimate photos of Plaintiff, Defendant Washington Nationals did nothing."
