Raise Your Hand If You Got Arrested For Choking Your Girlfriend Last Weekend
The NFL appears to be full of thugs, doesn't it? If there isn't one story about current and former players beating up and/or raping people, there is another. Perhaps, it's the prolonged use of steroids.
Former NFL star Warren Sapp has been released from jail on $1,500 bond Sunday after being arrested in Miami Beach on charges he choked his girlfriend in his hotel room at the Shore Club on Miami Beach.
The unidentified woman said she had been dating Warren about two years. She told officers the two were partying with a large group of friends when she got tired and went to lay down.
At around 5 a.m. Saturday, he returned, pulled her out of bed and tried to get her out of the room, according to the complaint. The complaint says he yelled at the woman about men she had been hanging out with and men listed in her cell phone.
The woman told police Warren choked her, threw her down on a couch, then picked her up by her shirt and neck and threw her down again - injuring her leg.
She was taken to a hospital where she was treated for a swollen knee and bruises on her neck.
Warren told investigators he let the woman stay in his room but asked her to leave a few hours later because he was expecting company. He told police the woman fell on her leg when he tried to help her get off a couch.
He was charged with one count of misdemeanor domestic battery.
