Former MLB star Carl Crawford was arrested for felony domestic violence on Thursday in Texas. He allegedly choked his ex-girlfriend at gunpoint back in May.
Crawford's ex-girlfriend claims he interrogated her at gunpoint about a male acquaintance. She says he threatened her and choked her before slamming her head against a wall.
From TMZ Sports:
The alleged victim claims she had recently broken up with the former MLB star after a two-and-a-half-year relationship, but agreed to meet with him on May 8 at her Houston, Texas apartment to talk things out.
When Crawford arrived, the woman claims he removed a semi-automatic handgun from his pocket. She then claims Crawford "unloaded the clip and ejected a round of the pistol and began walking towards her holding the firearm."
The woman says Crawford was visibly upset ... and claims the former MLB star began interrogating her, warning her that "if she lied to him that he was going to hurt her."
The woman says she tried to leave her apartment ... but says Crawford pushed her down to the ground in the hallway.
Crawford, per the docs, then "held the gun in one hand, and used the other hand to grab her by the head and neck, while asking her how long she had been dating a male acquaintance."
When she says she replied that she only knew the other man for a week, she claims Crawford accused her of lying and slammed her head against the wall several times.
While still holding the gun, Crawford allegedly began to squeeze the woman's neck while asking, "how long had she been having sex with the male."
Talk about not letting the quarantine slow you down. Crawford's now been arrested after two people drown in a swimming pool at his house. There's some bad energy following him around lately.
On a less serious note, I'm not convinced the argument wasn't about how long Crawford takes to shave on a daily basis. Getting that pencil thin mustache has to be a time consuming process.
