“Tonight Justin Watson stood on my neck and stomped my face in then kept kicking me and shoving my hair into his fist and the corner of the bed frame. I got away for a second trying to run down the hall (naked) screaming for my life as he drag me back by my hair. Luckily someone from my hotel heard my screams and came to me rescue. I’m stuck in Texas, not knowing where he is and scared. ”
