Ex-baseball star is arrested for choking his girlfriend at gunpoint and slamming her head into a wall

Former Los Angeles Dodgers star Carl Crawford has been arrested after his former girlfriend accused him of assaulting her during an argument over a man she had begun dating.

An arrest affidavit filed this week by Houston police states that the ballplayer-turned-record producer went to the home of Gabriele Washington on May 8, produced a handgun from which he unloaded the ammunition in her presence, then demanded information on her latest dating relationship.

Washington told investigators Crawford pushed her to the floor, slammed her head against a wall and choked her after she told him that she had not had sex with the man she was dating.

'You are a f***ing liar,' Crawford allegedly told her while slamming her head into the wall.

At one point, Washington claims, Crawford began squeezing her neck and she felt as though she was about to pass out.

When her daughter walked up, she distracted Crawford, who is the child's father, and Washington ran to call police. Crawford then fled but followed up with threatening cellphone texts to Washington, according to the affidavit.

Crawford allegedly left the gun at the scene.

He is free on $50,000 bond.
