Giants OT Michael Bowie has been charged with domestic assault and battery, and malicious injury or destruction of property in Oklahoma back on July 31, according to court records obtained by KOTV-6 in Tulsa.
A warrant has been issued for Bowie’s arrest and he is scheduled to be held in lieu of $17,000 bond.
According to the report, Bowie went to his girlfriend’s home and became angry with her because of how she spoke to his mother, prosecutors allege.
Bowie allegedly grabbed her by the throat, threw her to the ground, punched a hole in the wall and broke two televisions.
Giants released a statement regarding the news of Bowie’s domestic violence chargers:
“We were made aware of the Michael Bowie situation Saturday afternoon. We immediately notified NFL security. Michael will not make the trip for our game in Cleveland as we gather more information.”
Bowie, 25, is a former seventh-round pick of the Seahawks out of Northeastern State back in 2013. He spent one year in Seattle before he was waived and later claimed off of waivers by the Browns.
Cleveland placed Bowie on the reserve/retired list back in early August before cutting him loose in September of last year. Bowie signed a future/reserve contract with the Giants this past January.
In 2013, Bowie appeared in nine games and played a total of 539 snaps, grading out as a solid run-blocker.
