New York Giants linebacker Michael Boley is under investigation amid allegations that he repeatedly abused his five-year old son this spring, TMZ reported on Saturday.
Boley is alleged to have beaten his son repeatedly between the dates of May 30 and June 5, according to a Gadsden, Alabama police report.
The entire details of the allegation are not known, but a police spokesperson told TMZ that the District Attorney's office has been given the results of the investigation and will present them to a grand jury. The grand jury will then decide whether Boley will be charged with a crime.
Boley's attorney, Randall M. Kessler, said he has been aware of the charges for some time since they were brought up during a contested child support case, and that the child's mother did not ask for any order restricting visitation at the time.
A second woman, who has a two-year old son with Boley, has requested that Boley only be allowed to visit their child under supervision.
