Former Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford made the news earlier last month when two people drowned at him home. Per the report, a child had jumped into the pool at this house in Houston.
Crawford released a statement following the drownings.
The tragic events that occurred at my home will be with me forever. I’m at a loss for words. I’ve struggled all week to manage my emotions and I keep thinking of the families of those who’ve passed and their grief, I know they have it the hardest. They are the first and last thing l think of these days. Please keep them in your prayers, I know they will always be in mine.
Today, TMZ Sports is reporting that Crawford has been placed under arrest for domestic violence in Texas. The details surrounding the arrest and whether or not they relate to the drownings are still not clear.
The jail records obtained by TMZ show that Crawford was charged with “assault fam/house mem impede breath/circulate”. They speculated that this terminology often means there was some sort of choking involved. The former Dodgers’ outfielder had his bail set at $10,000 and is being held with the Harris County Sherif.
More details to follow as they emerge.
