Early this morning, popular TV and Internet gossip rag TMZ reported that New York Giants linebacker Michael Boley is currently under investigation after being accused of repeatedly abusing his five-year old son earlier this year.
The article cites a report taken by the Gadsden Police Department which details said accusation, saying the abuse took place from May 30th through June 5th, although it does not state specific details of the alleged abuse.
“These allegations were brought to our attention along with outrageous monetary demands in a contested child support case which she filed over a year ago,” said Randall M. Kessler, Boley’s attorney. “At final trial about a month ago, she did not seek an order restricting visitation. The only relief she requested from the judge was that child support be more than quintupled to, in her words, ‘increase her lifestyle.’”
Following the news of this alleged abuse, another woman in Georgia, who also has a two-year old child with Boley, filed paperwork with a local court asking that his visitation now be supervised.
Gadsden PD says the case has now been turned over to the District Attorney’s Office and will be presented to the Grand Jury to determine if there’s enough evidence for Boley to charged with a crime.
This is not the first time Boley has been accused of a domestic issue, as the NFL suspended him one game in 2009 after being arrested and charged with three counts of domestic battery. He allegedly struck his then wife, Chantelle.
In the past, Boley has participated in many charitable initiatives for children, including hosting a “Super Autism Party” with the National M.O.M. Squad to help raise autism awareness.
