Boley investigated for child abuse, expected to play Sunday

Reuters

The Gadsden Police Department in Alabama is reportedly investigating accusations of child abuse by Giants linebacker Michael Boley.

Boley has not been charged, but an incident report has been passed to the District Attorney, who will present the case to a grand jury to determine whether there is enough evidence to charge Boley.

“These allegations were brought to our attention along with outrageous monetary demands in a contested child support case which [the mother of the child] filed over a year ago,” Boley’s attorney told TMZ.com.

A Giants spokesman told Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger says that the team is aware of the incident and that Boley is expected to play Sunday against the Redskins.

  1. Sounds like a baby mama wanting to get paid to me. However, if this case goes forward and he were to be found guilty he should be banned for life from the NFL.

  2. So up to a month ago, nothing. When she doesnt get a five fold increase in child support, he’s a child abuser. Rrriiigggghhhtttt.

  3. And people wonder why the country so excited for Tim Tebow. He’s a good man and people want to see him do well because of it. In a league that has drug dealers, murderers, dog killers and rapists, Tebow a breath of fresh air.

  4. Anything new on the abuse case that intern filed after boley pelted him in the face with the ball after that that defensive td against the rams?

    That was classic.

  5. Boley’s attorney, Randall M. Kessler, tells TMZ … “These allegations were brought to our attention along with outrageous monetary demands in a contested child support case which she filed over a year ago.”

    Kessler added, “At final trial about a month ago, she did not seek an order restricting visitation. The only relief she requested from the judge was that child support be more than quintupled to, in her words, ‘increase her lifestyle.'”

    Why would you not restrict visitation if you are claiming he is abusing your child??? Sounds suspicious to me along with her wanting to “increase her lifestyle”

  6. Making claims of abuse as leverage in alimony negotiations is, unfortunately, all too common. These allegations should be looked at skeptically until ALL the ‘evidence’ is in. The grand jury will decide whether there is any basis to these claims.

  7. As a divorced father, I know all too well what he’s going thru. Never once raised a hand to my kid or ex. Nor did I risk harm or injury to either of them. Her blood thirsty lawyer attempted to slander my name numerous times. These baby mommas just throw mud at the wall!

    Moral of the story, I ponied up with my attorney. Faught all the accusations thru my attorney. Took all the tests she demanded. Proved all acusations wrong. Never said a word about it to my kid. Nor will I. Down the road, I am sure she will find all the paperwork and see just how deceitful her mother was. I don’t care if it’s after I’m gone and my kid is going thru my things deciding what to keep and what to disgard. She will find out in the end.

    You have got to be kidding me. That is about 6 players out of hundreds in the nfl. There are plenty of upstanding players in the game that are god loving who give back to the community, but the difference is they are not in the media every 5 seconds like Tebow. Tebow is a sensationalized story and nothing more. Please don’t act like he is the only good person in the game.

  9. Sounds to me like a woman just trying to throw dirt on a Boley’s name. No charges will be filed. Just a way for a scorned lover to increase her pay day and muddy up his name in the process. People won’t care if no charges are brought on Boley. They’ll just assume he’s a child abuser!

  10. Ever since I saw Boley throw the ball and hit that guy in the face and then jog off like nothing happened I have had ZERO respect for him. I don’t doubt that this guy is just as big a d!ckhead off the field after that. That was unbelievable.

  11. This is what happens when athletes hook up with women who use their reproductive systems as ATMs!

    @playitfunky: As rcampore points out, there are other good guys in the league, but nobody’s “perfect”, so be careful with your “fresh air” opinion of St. Timothy. I remember some saying the same thing about Paterno.

  12. melikefootball, Goodell is too busy trying to come up with a way to suspend James Harrison while he’s serving his suspension.

    Kudos to you. It takes a lot of fortitude to put being a great dad ahead of getting back at the ex for her disgusting acts. I wish more divorced people, men AND women, could do the same.

    I really wish the “justice” system would make those slanderous types have grave consequences like making them pay every single dime of the defendant’s expenses plus damages. That would cut down on this “all reward no risk” lawsuit strategy I think.

  14. Whoever doesn’t think this lady’s story is suspect needs to have their head examined….just because the guy is kind of a jerk doesn’t mean he is a child abuser. Hitting someone with a ball is a lot different from beating your child. I too am a divorced father who had to fight tooth and nail against allegations from the ex in regards to my child. This crap happens to often and people don’t seem to care that the only person who is actually hurt by this is the children. I luckily hired a good lawyer and all the allegations were thrown out. The main mistake this dude made was not being careful who he is screwing around with.

    That would be 6 out of 1696 or about 3 tenths of 1% that are bad guys. I’ll bet it’s a lot higher in most professions.

    ^^^ that exact comment word for word was made on TMZ.com 9 hours ago. Although I completely agree with that comment, why don’t we come up with our own insight on the topic when we post next time. Lol

    Really? You know him personally to be able to say hes a good man? Are you just assuming that because he wears his religion on his sleeve that he’s a good man? I could give you a number of individuals who put there religion on their sleeve and weren’t good men. Newt Gingrich espoused “family values” publicly yet he has cheated on his spouse multiple times (among other things).

    We know very little about public figures like Tebow other than what they put in front of the public.

    We also know very little about what actually happened in the Boley case. Sounds like there may be more to it.

  18. Wasn’t this guy previously suspended for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy in connection with a previous domestic assault situation?

    No, nothing new on that non-case. Where do you come up with this crap?

    “I was just reacting to the moment,” Boley said. “I didn’t mean to hurt anybody. It was just the emotion of the play.”

    Brown said he was looking at the scoreboard to see if Boley was going to be caught when he saw the football whizzing at him.

    He said after the game he was fine.

  20. when you end your blurb with something like…

    “These allegations were brought to our attention along with outrageous monetary demands in a contested child support case which [the mother of the child] filed over a year ago,” Boley’s attorney told TMZ.com.”

    why did you even post something like this rosenthal, when we all know what is going on here?
    wow, you, even as a giants fan, will sell your soul for a buck for the sake of a ‘juicy story’.
    shame on you.

    Child abuse, no problem you can play. Hit someone too hard with your shoulder SUSPENDED
    ———————————————————
    Ever so slight difference. Boley is “alleged” and being investigated on what sounds to be a VERY fishy story. Harrison (I’ll assume you were talking about him) has been fined multiple times and is (what the league calls) “a repeat offender”.

    I can almost guarantee that if Boley is found guilty of the allegations, he will get more than a 1 game suspension (as well he should).

    I can only assume that you would prefer they suspend EVERY player who is alleged to have any transgressions? Fine. Let’s not even bother having football, since half the players in the league will be suspended.

  22. The story has been update: “A source familiar with the situation confirmed what Kessler told TMZ earlier, that the mother never brought up the allegations during the court case and that “She did not seek an order restricting visitation. The only relief she requested from the judge was that child support be more than quintupled to, in her words, ‘increase her lifestyle.'”

    Yep, totally about the money.
