New York Giants offensive lineman Michael Bowie turned himself in Monday after a warrant was issued last week on a charge of domestic assault and battery in Oklahoma.

Bowie, a native of Tulsa, also was charged with two counts of malicious injury or destruction of property.

The 25-year-old was booked at 11:23 a.m. and released at 12:07 p.m. after posting $17,000 bond, according to Tulsa County jail records.

Bowie did not travel with the team to play Monday night's game against the Cleveland Browns.

According to the Tulsa World, Bowie and his girlfriend had an argument over finances and it turned physical after the woman made a remark about Bowie's mother.

Tulsa County assistant district attorney Kenneth Elmore told the newspaper that Bowie grabbed the woman by her neck and tossed her to the ground. He then broke two televisions and punched a hole in the wall.

Bowie would be subject to potential discipline by the league under the conduct policy. He has been working as New York's third-string tackle this summer and is considered a long shot to make the team.

The Giants faced a high-profile domestic abuse situation last season when kicker Josh Brown received a one-game suspension. The Giants cut Brown when he later admitted to physically abusing his ex-wife.
