This isn't looking good.
Dwight Howard was recently revealed to be under criminal investigation for child abuse for allegedly beating his six-year-old child with a belt buckle.

But Dwight was reported to the police by his baby momma Royce Reed and it turns out that she was investigated for child abuse, as well!
The incident happened back in February after the The Florida Dept. of Children and Families received a call from Dwight's son's school whom told authorities the child had been beaten on his neck and leg for using "potty words."
Royce subsequently admitted that she had beaten the child for "dropped the f-bomb" at school. When authorities dropped by to check in on the child they found no visible marks, and the mother said she only used a child fabric belt.
Still, the school wasn't satisfied with that and eventually accused Royce Reed of using excessive force on her child.
However this was all before Royce eventually called the authorities in on Dwight Howard in August for the child abuse charges that he's facing now.
We'll see what his punishment will be. It'll be interesting to see if he gets punished by the team he plays for - the Houston Rockets - especially since he's such a high profile player!
