"Family Matters" star Darius McCrary's real-life family is in shambles after his wife obtained a restraining order against him and accused him of terrorizing her and abusing their infant daughter.
Tammy Brawner says McCrary went nuts on Feb. 10 ... hurling picture frames and other objects around the house, and hitting her in the head with his forearm. She says the objects he threw came dangerously close to their 16-month-old daughter, Zoey.
Where Zoey's concerned ... Tammy says McCrary has abused her on several instances, including one particularly horrifying time when he held the baby over a boiling pot of water and said he wished he never had her. In docs obtained byTMZ, she also accuses
him of frequent spankings and strapping down Zoey's arms during meals.
Tammy, a former Harlem Globetrotter, says the actor regularly drinks, does drugs and comes home wasted and violent.
A judge has ordered Darius to move out of their home, and he must stay 100 yards away from Tammy and Zoe. He's also barred from any visitation until after a court hearing next month. Tammy says she plans to file for divorce.
This isn't the first time Darius has been accused of being a violent lover. You may recall, Karrine Steffans claimed the actor beat his son with a spoon.
She later retracted her accusations.
Darius McCrary currently has a recurring role on Lee Daniels' new music drama, "Star".
