Report: Rockets' Dwight Howard being investigated for child abuse
by Sean d'Oliveira |

Police in Cobb County, Ga., have re-opened an investigation into allegations Rockets center Dwight Howard abused his child, reports the Orlando Sentinel.

Howard was investigated for child abuse over the summer, but the case was closed in September after there was not enough evidence to support the allegations. Howard was also investigated in Florida for child abuse, but no charges were filed.

However, with new evidence coming to light, Cobb County police decided to re-open the investigation. 

"Even though the allegations have already been found to have no merit, when a complaint about the welfare of a child is made to law enforcement, an investigation is commenced," said Howard’s attorney, David Oscar Markus. "We are confident the Georgia authorities will reach the same conclusion as the Florida authorities. The truth is on our side."
