David Boston faces battery charge after alleged assault of woman

Former Cardinals receiver David Boston is just about the least surprising former player to show up back in the news after an arrest.

ABC 25 in West Palm Beach cites a police report that Boston was charged with aggravated battery on Wednesday. Boston allegedly punched a woman twice in the head, leaving a gash that required 10 stitches.

One woman who lived with Boston (but was not the one beaten) said she witnessed Boston drink a bottle of vodka, a bottle of wine, and take some pills on Wednesday. Boston was supposedly set to move out into a nearby hotel.

  1. So tired of hearing these stories about D-bags who think playing football and having money makes them exempt from the laws of this country and of human decency. Don’t know the facts of this story, but it goes without saying that there is never an acceptable reason to hit a woman (unless she’s wielding a weapon and it’s self defense maybe). Real men keep their heads and don’t raise their fists in violence.

  2. This guy isn’t even in the league anymore and his criminal behavior receives the same amount of coverage as Walden? Is the hypocrisy exhibited by those who run this site supposed to be so obvious?

    Go Lions! Go Badgers!

    David Boston hasn’t played football in years and probably has no money left from his playing days. I’m sure that went through his mind… I used to play football and be rich so I won’t get in trouble if I get drunk beat up some girl. Don’t try to link the two.

  4. Listen, you go t really big dude who had high expecvtations, with an ego AND an attitude problem who by all accounts is a complete failure and he knows it and knows everyone else knows it. . Add on top of that an obvious anger/substance problem and it spells disaster. I believe this kids dad used to be or is a ref right? Time to call a time-out

    Not so sure he has money anymore, he signed a $47 million dollar contract with the Chargers back in the day and the article states he was living with the girl waiting to move into a hotel.

  6. Went to the same high school as him, even have a signed Cardinals jersey(my mom worked with his mom)…we all thought he was destined for greatness. Those matchups with Woodson in college were exciting to watch. Such a dissapointment that he chose this path and has turned into what he has become. (a lady beater).

    He comes from such a good family. His Mom is a wonderful person. So embarrased by him. Such a disgrace. Get your act together, David.

  7. I remember seeing this dude at a club in Columbus shortly after he got drafted. Dudes shoulders were wider than a Ford Focus… apparently he’s a fan of the juice and the sauce.

    I hope Boston can realize that from afar, he looks like a total alcoholic degenerate and he probably needs to get help for the sauce problem… Why he hasn’t already is baffling.

  8. David Boston!

    Boy there’s a name I didn’t think I’d ever hear again……..unless he got arrested.

  9. I don’t understand why there any thumbs downs for theduuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude’s comment. If you disgree why don’t you post the reason, or are you afraid someone will beat you like Boston did to that women. Don’t worry, I’m sure cyber comments won’t require stitches.

  10. @theduuuuuude:

    I completely agree with your statement except that I am pretty sure David Boston would be hitting women even if he never played in the NFL.

    Batterers are batterers, rich or poor.

  11. Thought it was that Boston came from a very nice, balanced family even though he seemed to have ingested an inordinate amount of anabolic steroids during his career. Supposedly.

  12. Where is the public outcry to have him suspended for the rest of the season?

    …this guy will have less haters than a guy to stomped on an opponent (an opponent who needed to check the tape to see where he was stomped).

    Hard to believe the hypocrisy we see in this world today.

    =====================

    Let me be the first to say publicly that Boston should be suspended for the rest of the season even though he hasn’t played in the NFL in FOUR YEARS.

    David Boston hasn’t played in the NFL for years, so no one is going to cry that he should be suspended for the rest of the season. As for Nstompukong Suh, I’m not sure what he has to do with this at all.

    Hard to believe the (lack of) education we see in this world today.

  15. Laziness is not why this guy failed. If anything, one could probably argue the exact opposite side. He got himself in TOO good of shape. It is probably more accurate to say mental problems led to his failure.

    It was similar to Jevon Kearse. They simply had too much weight on their frames given the level of fat they had, which was insanely low.

    Boston was a freak for a year then continually tore his knees even as his team trainers told him to CUT weight. He actually tried to use his own trainer instead of the team ones if I remember correctly.

    Brady Quinn heard the same stuff when he came into the league. He was too chiseled/big. They just assume you are injury prone with those levels of stress on your joints.

  16. Maybe it’s a little unfair to assume that Boston has a sense of entitlement because he used to play in the NFL (and I’ll concede that he probably doesn’t have much money left over), that’s just my opinion, take it for what it’s worth. I was just making a more general point that we hear so many stories about current and former athletes and physical abuse and committing crimes.

    I’ll say it again for those who decided to thumbs down me before: There is NEVER any excuse to raise your hand in anger toward a woman.

  17. He stay with Miami for a brief stay, of course he had trouble with the law, I keep saying there is no cure for stupid, I see Boston spending some serious time in prison, perhaps there is no help for these guys. Bill

  18. “said she witnessed Boston drink a bottle of vodka, a bottle of wine, and take some pills on Wednesday.”

    Sounds like the kind of guy I’d like to party with. What’s the over/under on months until PFT is running a story on him being bankrupt?
