Carl Crawford's name was in the news last month after two individuals tragically drowned at his house in Houston. The former MLB outfielder's name is now back in the news after he was arrested on a domestic violence charge Thursday in Harris County, Texas.

TMZ shared some graphic alleged details, including how Crawford reportedly held the victim -- understood to be an ex of his -- at gunpoint while grabbing her by the neck.

The alleged crime took place in early May before the drownings occurred. The former MLB All-Star surrendered to the police Thursday nearly a month after the crime was committed.

Crawford played Major League Baseball from 2002 to 2016 for the Rays, Red Sox, and Dodgers, making four All-Star teams.

The description TMZ reports is tough to read, and it is terrible to think that Crawford could have ever put another human being in such a situation. A young child was also reportedly at the scene, which only makes the whole thing even worse.

There is no excuse and no defense for what's alleged to have occurred. Our thoughts are with those so deeply affected by this incident.
