The New York Giants have suspended safety Kamrin Moore for an alleged domestic violence incident. Moore, 22, was arrested over the weekend for an incident that allegedly occurred on Thursday night, according to Ryan Dunleavy of NJ Advance Media.

According to NJ Advance’s report, Moore “is accused of placing his foot on the unidentified woman’s neck and applying pressure during an incident outside of his home on Thursday night”.

The victim also states that Moore “(punched) her in the face with a closed fist….causing her to lose consciousness” after she got back up and shoved him. The report further states that the incident began when the victim drove to Moore’s home after he failed to respond to several text messages. An altercation allegedly broke out between the victim and another woman before the accused attack.

In accordance with laws regarding alleged domestic violence victims, the female victim has yet to be publicly identified. They filed charges against Moore with Linden Police on Saturday.

“New York Giants safety Kamrin Moore was arrested over the weekend in Linden, New Jersey, for an alleged domestic violence-related incident,” a team spokesperson told Dunleavy. “Moore has been suspended by the team pending further investigation.”

Moore was a sixth-round draft pick by the New Orleans Saints out of Boston College in the 2018 draft. He was released after training camp and picked up by the Giant soon after. His rookie season saw him appear in two regular season games.
