Since retiring from Major League Baseball, Carl Crawford has turned himself into a music label CEO and he is now the head of Houston-based 1501 Entertainment which boasts the likes of Megan Thee Stallion. But they agreed to meet on May 8, in Houston, Texas, to have a conversation. He warned her that "if she lied to him that he was going to hurt her".
The incident apparently happened one week before a child and a woman drowned at Crawford's home in Houston. Crawford, with the gun in one hand, yoked her up by the head and neck with the other and demanded to know how long she'd been dating a male acquaintance.
She said Crawford was upset and began questioning her.
While still holding the gun, Crawford allegedly began to squeeze the woman's neck while asking, "how long had she been having sex with the male".

He went on, "I came back to Pakistan and didn't get a chance to visit them again but our bond became rock solid over the years". Wajid Khan of popular musical duo Sajid-Wajid has died reportedly after coronavirus complications.
When her 1-year-old daughter walked up, she distracted Crawford, who is the girl's father, and Washington ran to call police, the affidavit said. The woman told police that Crawford had slammed her head into a wall and choked her during the exchange. Crawford also allegedly fled the scene, but he left behind his handgun.
The 38-year-old Crawford reportedly surrendered at the Harris County Sheriff's Office on Thursday and is being held on a $10,000 bond.
A message to his attorney, Rusty Hardin, seeking comment was not returned immediately.
