Darius McCrary's Ex-Wife Gets Custody of Daughter, Judge Orders Him to Have Random Drug Testing
Darius McCrary's wife filed for divorce in 2017, stating that she had serious concerns about the couple's daughter's safety
Brawner, 32, and McCrary, 42, filed their last divorce judgment in Los Angeles on Monday. According to the documents obtained by PEOPLE, Brawner, a former Harlem Globetrotter, was granted full legal and physical custody of the former couple’s 3-year-old daughter Zoey.
McCrary, who has been ordered to attend alcohol/drug abuse and batterers’ intervention classes within 12 months, will get professional monitored visitation with Zoey every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., until he’s completed 10 visits. During this time, he’s required to enroll in and complete six parenting classes.
Then, he will be allowed to have non-professional monitored visits with a designated family member, until he’s completed 10 visits. Next, he gets unmonitored weekly visitation with Zoey. During this step, he’s required to enroll in and complete 10 co-parenting classes, which may be done individually.
McCrary has also been ordered to submit to two more random drug tests within the next 60 days.
PEOPLE has reached out to a rep for McCrary for comment.
According to the documents, there is to be no contact between parents during exchanges, and neither parent can be under the influence of alcohol or drugs while the child is in their custody and care. Additionally, neither parent is to speak in a negative way about the other parent in the child’s presence or within hearing distance of the child, or use the child as a messenger, or question the child about their time with the other parent.
McCrary was also ordered to pay $1,366 per month in child support ($916 as a base amount, plus $415 in child-care costs).
According to TMZ, Brawner filed for divorce from McCrary in March 2017, citing irreconcilable differences and stating that she had serious concerns about Zoey’s safety.
Brawner reportedly told doctors that McCrary was taking his daughter to the bathroom and “grabbed her arm.” McCrary reportedly denied that account and claimed he “grabbed one hand to lift her up and immediately grabbed the other.”
Zoey was reportedly diagnosed with Nursemaid’s elbow, a common elbow injury among young children and toddlers that occurs when a child’s elbow is pulled and one of the bones partially dislocates.
A rep for McCrary did not respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment at the time.
