Giants tackle Michael Bowie charged with domestic assault and battery, won't play Monday

The Dallas Cowboys aren't the only team in the NFC East dealing with a domestic violence issue.

New York Giants offensive lineman Michael Bowie, 25, will not travel with the team for Monday night's game at Cleveland after court records in Oklahoma showed he'd been charged with misdemeanor domestic assault and battery and two counts of malicious injury or destruction of property.

The Giants issued a statement Saturday that read: "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 on the issue."

According to the Tulsa World, Bowie allegedly grabbed his girlfriend by the neck and threw her to the ground during a fight about finances that escalated when she made a comment about his mother, per Tulsa County assistant district attorney Kenneth Elmore

A seventh-round pick of the Seattle Seahawks in 2013, Bowie has not appeared in an NFL regular-season game since his rookie season after bouncing around the league.

Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was suspended six games earlier this month amid domestic violations allegations. He is appealing the penalty.
