According to Yahoo Sports, Michael Boley has been accused of physically abusing his son. More after the jump.
“During our entire trial on her request for child support, the only thing the mother asked the court to do was to increase the child support to five times what it currently is since Mr. Boley is a highly paid NFL player,” Kessler said. “There was no evidence presented of any increased needs of the child. It was a simply a case of `he makes a lot of money, so he should pay a lot of money.”’
Boley is in the third year of a five-year contract with the Giants worth about $25 million.
Giants spokesman Pat Hanlon said the team is aware of the allegations, but had no further comment.
Kessler said abuse was alleged to have happened between May 30 and June 5.
He said a Georgia woman recently asked for Boley’s contact with their child to be supervised, but didn’t an file emergency request. He said no hearing has been scheduled.
Boley was also arrested in May 2008 on battery charges after his wife, Chantelle, told police he “became physical” with her during an argument. He was suspended for one game by the NFL for violation of the league’s personal conduct policy, but the case didn’t go to court.
Michael is, of course, innocent until proven guilty
