    Ex-New York Giants linebacker Michael Boley was quietly arrested for child abuse back in February, 3 days after he was cut by the team according to TMZ.com.

    Boley, a starting linebacker in Super Bowl XLVI, had been under investigation in Alabama for a 2011 incident involving his son, who was 5 years old at the time, the details of the alleged abuse are unclear, although sources tell us the allegations were of a physical nature and NOT sexual abuse.

    Here's what we know ... Boley's case was scheduled to go in front of a grand jury in February 2013 ... but before that got under way, the 30-year-old NFL star struck a plea deal with prosecutors.

    Court officials in Etowah County, AL say Boley pled guilty to child abuse -- and in exchange, he was ordered to enroll in a pre-trial diversion program and upon completion the charge would be dropped.

    Boley was also required to turn himself into authorities, he was booked on February 8, smiled for a mug shot and was released from custody later that day.
