Actor Nick Pasqual Awaits Extradition in Texas Jail After Attempted Murder Charg

Nick Pasqual, known for his role in “How I Met Your Mother,” is currently detained in a small-town Texas jail, awaiting extradition to California.

The 34-year-old actor faces serious charges, including attempted murder, burglary, and domestic violence. Pasqual is accused of brutally stabbing his girlfriend, makeup artist Allie Shehorn, more than 20 times.

Failed Escape Attempt

Pasqual’s arrest came after a failed attempt to flee to Mexico. He was apprehended approximately 35 miles from the Hudspeth County seat while trying to cross the Fort Hancock International Bridge into Chihuahua.

Since then, he has been held in the Hudspeth County Jail in Sierra Blanca, Texas, a remote town just 16 miles from the Mexican border.

Awaiting Extradition

Despite Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon’s commitment to bringing Pasqual back to California to face charges, no date has been set for his extradition.

A source from the jail confirmed, “He’s still here and no extradition date has been set yet. He’ll be here until he goes back to LA, but we haven’t heard anything yet.”

The Brutal Attack

The attack on Shehorn occurred in the early hours of May 23. According to reports, Pasqual, who had a history of domestic violence, assaulted Shehorn in their Sunland home.

Shehorn, who is still recovering in the hospital, has been moved out of the ICU and is making progress, according to updates on her GoFundMe page. Friends and supporters have raised over $110,000 for her care.

History of Abuse

Shehorn had suffered months of abuse at Pasqual’s hands before the attack. She had taken out a restraining order against him on May 18, following an incident where he allegedly bashed her head against the floor and attempted to break down a door.

Despite the restraining order and Pasqual’s arrest on felony domestic violence charges, he was released on bail, allowing him to attack Shehorn again three days later.

The Aftermath

Pasqual’s repeated violent behavior included incidents where he allegedly hit Shehorn with a belt, broke down doors, and raped and choked her.

In her restraining order application, Shehorn detailed these attacks and requested protection for herself, her surrogate mother Christine White, and their dog Riley. White was the one who found Shehorn “bleeding out” after the stabbing attack.

Legal Proceedings

Pasqual is scheduled to appear in court on June 12 on a felony charge in San Fernando. Additionally, a hearing to decide whether to make Shehorn’s temporary restraining order permanent is set for June 11 in Pasadena.

Gascon has vowed to ensure that Pasqual is held accountable for his actions, describing the attack as a stark reminder of the dangers of domestic violence.

Community Response

The news of Pasqual’s violent behavior and Shehorn’s recovery has sparked a significant outpouring of support.

Donations have been pouring in to assist with Shehorn’s medical expenses, and friends and supporters have praised her courage and determination in facing a long road to recovery.


As Pasqual remains in custody in Texas, the legal process continues to unfold. The actor’s alleged actions have drawn widespread condemnation and highlighted the serious issue of domestic violence.

The community’s support for Shehorn underscores the resilience and solidarity in the face of such tragic events.

The pending extradition and upcoming court dates will be crucial in determining the next steps for both Pasqual and Shehorn.
