Ex-MLB All-Star Carl Crawford arrested for allegedly assaulting ex-girlfriend

Crawford, who was with the Red Sox in 2011 and 2012 before being traded to the Dodgers, allegedly choked his ex-girlfriend at gunpoint. Unlike his business dealings with rapper Megan Thee Stallion, or the tragic death of a child in his home pool, this time Crawford has made headlines with an arrest.

While still holding the gun, Crawford allegedly began to squeeze the woman's neck while asking, "how long had she been having sex with the male". 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.

The woman says Crawford was visibly upset. and claims the former Major League Baseball star began interrogating her, warning her that "if she lied to him that he was going to hurt her".

The woman said Crawford told her that he was going to ask her questions "one last time" and if she lied to him, he'd hurt her, the complaint states.

The woman says she tried to leave her apartment. but says Crawford pushed her down to the ground in the hallway.

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. Crawford fled the scene but also sent threatening texts in the ensuing days.

TMZ Sports reported on Thursday that Crawford surrendered to authorities at the Harris County Sheriff's Office in Texas.
