Michael Bowie, a lineman for the New York Giants has officially been released from the team after an alleged domestic violence incident with his girlfriend.

A warrant for his arrest was issued last week in Tulsa after he was charged with domestic assault and battery, according to the New York Post.

Bowie turned himself in and did not travel with the team to Cleavland for their Monday night game against the Browns.

Jerry Reese, general manger of the Giants said in a statement, “We have waived Michael Bowie. As we have already stated, we were made aware of this situation on Saturday. The league has started to gather more information. That process will continue. The outcome of that process will determine whether there is another opportunity here for Michael.”

Bowie played for the Seahawks in 2013 for nine games and he was a long shot to make the Giants’ roster this season. The Giants made some more cuts due to player injuries and signed a few players in a attempt to tidy up their roster before the start of the regular season.
