Dan Price Partner Charged Him Of Domestic Abuse

In 2013, Price attended an Irish pub in Seattle, sat at a table of individuals he did not know and was asked to leave. After the bar’s manager led him out, Price punched the manager. Price was arrested and charged. The charges were later dismissed.

In October 2015, Price’s ex-wife Kristie Colón taped a TEDx lecture at the University of Kentucky in which she stated that Price tossed, punched, slapped, body-slammed, and waterboarded her when they were married. Price’s representatives told the university that they deemed Colón’s remarks to be defamatory.

The university eventually erased its video footage of Colón’s talk, which it had been intending to publish in December, and deleted information about her from the TEDx event’s website. Price refuted her charges of violence, saying the incidents Colón described never happened and said that his wife never filed a police report. Price’s father refuted Colón’s charges in an interview with the Idaho Statesman in December 2015.

Felony r*pe of a drugged victim

In January 2016, Colón released a blog post standing by her charges. The Palm Springs Police Department investigated Price for “felony r*pe of a drugged victim” accusations relating to an April 2021 incident at a Palm Springs hotel. On August 15, 2022, Palm Springs Police told The New York Times that they had sent the case to local prosecutors.

In February 2022, Price was charged with misdemeanor assault, criminal assault with s*xual motivation, and reckless driving after a 26-year-old woman accused Price of violently attempting to kiss her. The woman reportedly informed police that Price was driving while inebriated. Price’s attorney issued a statement disputing the woman’s charges. The assault with s*xual motivation allegation was eventually dismissed; Price pleaded not guilty to the remaining two accusations on May 31.

He won GeekWire’s Young Entrepreneur of the Year award in 2013. Entrepreneur magazine named him Entrepreneur of 2014.

On April 13, 2015, with reporters from The New York Times and NBC News in attendance, Price told Gravity Payments personnel that he was lowering his company’s basic pay to $70,000 and reducing his own remuneration from $1.1 million to $70,000. He extended the same minimum salary to all employees of ChargeItPro, a company Gravity Payments bought in 2019. Price cited “High money enhances judgment of life but not emotional well-being,” a 2010 paper by Daniel Kahneman and Angus Deaton of Princeton University, as a reason for his decision of the $70,000 minimum.

In March 2020, Price indicated that the wage hike has worked well for his company in particular, but hesitated to label it a genuine success because wealth inequality in the broader globe has continued to expand. In 2015, Price accepted a $500,000 book deal to be published by Viking Press. He planned to write about the establishment of Gravity Payments and about socially conscious business.

Price lost the book deal, and his representation by the talent agency WME, when a Bloomberg Businessweek piece in December 2015 stated that his ex-wife had accused him of domestic violence. His debut book, Worth It, was self-published in April 2020. Price resigned as Gravity Payments CEO on August 17, 2022, telling workers that he had to step aside from his CEO post to “concentrate full time on battling false claims leveled against me.” Tammi Kroll, Gravity Payments’ chief operations officer, replaced Price as CEO.
