NFL safety for the New York Giants, 22-year-old Kamrin Moore, was arrested on two aggravated assault charges following an incident with his girlfriend and an unidentified woman. As a result of the arrest, the pro-football player was also suspended by his team.
“New York Giants safety Kamrin Moore was arrested over the weekend in Linden, New Jersey, for an alleged domestic violence-related incident. Moore has been suspended by the team pending further investigation,” the Giants confirmed via Twitter on Monday.
According to Fox News, an unnamed woman unexpectedly stopped by Moore’s home when he was not responding to her texts. She had reportedly been seeing the football star since January of 2019. However, when she arrived at his place, his girlfriend was present.
A brawl broke out between the two ladies that resulted in the victim falling to the ground. Moore allegedly watched them scrap before he got in the middle of it and “placed his foot on [the anonymous woman’s] neck and applied pressure” while she was down on the floor.
The woman shoved Moore before trying to escape, but she claimed Moore punched her in the face before she finally got away. She was taken to a local hospital to be treated for “bruises and abrasions on her face and neck,” according to court papers.
An investigation is underway. Moore has not responded to the incident as of Tuesday afternoon. This story is developing and will be updated once more information becomes available.
