New York Giants linebacker Michael Boley is under investigation in Alabama for allegedly abusing his 5-year-old son earlier this year. TMZ.com reported that Bailey has been accused of "the repeated willful abuse of a child under 18 from May 30 to June 5." Boley's attorney, Randall M. Kessler, told the website that the allegations were made by the mother of the child, noting she has sought large increases in child-support payments. "She sued him over a year ago for child support," Kessler emailed the New York Daily News. "The trial was in October and all she sought was five times the child support." Boley has not been charged with a crime. A spokesman for the Gadsden (Ala.) Police Department told TMZ.com that the case was handed over to the District Attorney’s Office, which will present it to a grand jury. Boley signed a five-year, $25 million contract with the Giants in 2009. He is expected to play in Sunday's home game against the Washington Redskins.
