YouTube star Chris Sails is pleading with a judge to let him get back on social media, accusing the court order of screwing with his money.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Sails is requesting the ban on using social media be lifted by the court in the case accusing him of assaulting his ex-girlfriend/actress Parker McKenna.
He accuses the order of violating his freedom of speech and also blocks him from “his regular source of income which also prohibits Defendant to adequately provide for his son.”
Sails claims he has a contract with a third party that calls for him to post. He promises not to mention his ex McKenna while the case continues.
The judge has yet to rule.
Earlier this year, the judge ordered that one of the conditions for Sails while out on bond was to not use YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or any other platform.
Sails was originally arrested on October 25 for assaulting his ex-girlfriend over an incident that went down in September in Houston.
In the criminal docs relating to the assault arrest, Sails was accused of third-degree felony assault by police after they responded to a call at the apartment the ex-couple shared. Police noted that McKenna told them Sails became enraged when he noticed a message from another man on her Instagram.
McKenna says Sails allegedly began slapping her with an open hand, striking her in her torso and other body parts. She claims he repeatedly struck her, knocking her to the floor, which left her with golf ball sized bruises.
She accused Sails of punching her in the face with a closed fist, causing a black eye. Sails allegedly placed his hands around her neck and applied pressure, which resulted in her being unable to breathe.
McKenna told police she fought back, fearing he was going to kill her.
Police note that during the alleged strangulation, he repeatedly slammed the back of her head against the concrete. She pleaded with cops for an emergency protective order.
According to court docs, the judge granted a restraining order for Parker McKenna prohibiting Chris Sails from communicating with her or coming within 200 feet.
Sails is set to be back in court in June.
