“So You Think You Can Dance” alum Joshua Allen was charged with domestic violence for allegedly injuring his girlfriend, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said Thursday.
Allen, 27, faces two felony counts of willfully injuring a girlfriend after a prior conviction and one felony count of assault with a deadly weapon — in this case, a glass vase.
According to authorities, Allen was convicted of a misdemeanor count of willfully injuring the unnamed woman in January and was slapped with a protective order. However, the district attorney’s office said, Allen allegedly assaulted and strangled the same female on April 13, and on June 19, while facing prosecution on the April incident, he reportedly attacked her again.
The district attorney’s office says that the woman ran into a nearby coffee shop for help, and Allen allegedly threw a glass vase at a woman who tried to help her and attacked another person who attempted to intervene.
Allen faces more than 10 years in state prison if convicted as charged.
Allen won the fourth season of the series in 2008.
