Former New York Giants linebacker, Michael Boley had been under investigation after he allegedly abused his son in February 2011, who was only 5 years old then.
The 30-year-old was arrested February 2013, but after he managed to get a plea deal with prosecutors, he was still booked on February 8, but was later let go.
So here's what went down:

One more (possibly) awful sports scandal to add to the fire.
Michael Boley of the New York Giants is being investigated for allegedly abusing his 5-year-old son between May 30 and June 5.
No are no deets available as to exactly what kind of abuse Boley is being investigated for (physical, sexual, mental?), but the case has been handed over to an Alabama District Attorney's office.

Ouch! This may have been a touchdown celebration, but it's so NOT cool!
After returning a fumble for a touchdown during the Monday Night Football game against the St. Louis Rams, New York Giant outside linebacker Michael Boley spiked a ball directly into the face of an innocent bystander!
The poor guy was watching the game from the sidelines near a cameraman when he got surprised with pigskin to the face.
As you'll see in the clip above, it looks like Boley intended to use his adrenaline to nail the camera (for some kind of cool affect for viewers at home maybe?), but completely MISSED.
Actually, we take that back. The ball does eventually hit the camera, it just had to bounce off some guy's head first.
The NFL player didn't even seem to notice at the time, but we HOPE he'll reach out and offer his victim an apology after seeing this clip.
At least the guy can sell his face on eBay now.
