Carl Crawford has been arrested for felony domestic violence in Texas from an incident which occurred in May. Carl allegedly choked his ex-girlfriend at gunpoint according to court document.
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 the 8th May at her Houston, Texas apartment to talk about a few things.
When Carl arrived, the woman claims he removed a semi-automatic handgun from his pocket. She then claims Carl, “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 Carl 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 Carl pushed her down to the ground in the hallway.
She then alleges, he “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 Carl accused her of lying and slammed her head against the wall several times.
While still holding the gun, Carl allegedly began to squeeze the woman’s neck while asking, “how long had she been having sex with the male.”
The woman says she felt like she was about to pass out when her 1-year-old daughter walked over to her, which allegedly distracted Carl long enough for her to get up and flee the scene.
She claims Carl also left, but left his gun at the scene. The police were called and they observed pink areas on the woman’s neck and an injury to her right hand.
After the incident, the woman says Carl continued to send her menacing text messages like, “That wasn’t a beating u just mad I made u confess.”
Carl also allegedly sent her a text, stating that he was paying someone to track down the other male.
Harris County charged Carl with assault of a family member – impeding breathing … and he surrendered to authorities on today on Thursday 4th June.
He is currently in custody being held on $10,000 bond.
As we previously reported just days after the alleged incident, on the 16th May, a child and a woman tragically drowned at the former L.A. Dodgers outfielder’s Houston, Texas home.
In a statement addressing the accident, Crawford wrote, “My Hearts Heavy. The tragic events that occurred at my home will be with me forever. I’m at a loss for words I’ve struggled all week to manage my emotions and I keep thinking of the families of those who’ve passed and their grief, I know they have it the hardest. They are the first and last thing I think of these days. Please keep them in your prayers, I know they will always be n mine.”
Carl is Basketball Wives LA star Evelyn Lozada’s baby daddy.
