Police Re-Open Dwight Howard's Child Abuse Investigation
Citing new evidence, Georgia police say they're reopening a child abuse case against Howard stemming from a reported incident last summer.By Jay Strubberg | November 18, 2014
Georgia police are investigating Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard over allegations of abusing his young son.
The case stems from an incident last summer when the boy's mother told police Howard beat then-6-year-old Braylon, leaving cuts and bruises on his legs. Howard was investigated by Georgia and Florida police, but the case was closed due to lack of evidence.
Medical records obtained by TMZ Monday were released, showing the Florida doctor who evaluated Braylon said the bruises were "consistent with a medical diagnosis of physical abuse."
