Former MLB star Carl Crawford was arrested for allegedly assaulting his ex-girlfriend during an argument over a man she had started dating, police said.
An arrest affidavit for Crawford was filed Wednesday by Houston police. According to the affidavit, Crawford went to the home of the woman on May 8, produced a handgun and demanded information on her latest relationship. Crawford reportedly unloaded the handgun in her presence.
The woman told authorities the former Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder pushed her to the floor, slammed her head against the ball and choked her. Police said the woman’s 1-year-old daughter, whose father is Crawford, walked up and distracted the former baseball player.
Washington ran to call the police and Crawford fled. The affidavit stated that Crawford, who is now a record producer, began to send the woman threatening text messages.
The incident occurred a week before a woman and a child drowned at his Houston home.
Crawford, 38, was free on $50,000 bond.
