Oakland Raiders' offensive lineman Cornell Green has been arrested on a domestic violence charge in Florida, according to an Associated Press report published in the Tampa Tribune.
A Tampa police report indicates that Green became violent Saturday during an argument with the mother of his two children in his home. Police say Green slammed 30-year-old Teriyonal Ebony Flowers into a wall, then struck her right arm with an aluminum mop handle.
Green then fled the scene and was later apprehended at the Tampa International Airport while waiting for a flight to Oakland, Calif.
The 32-year-old tackle was being held Sunday at the Hillsborough County jail on a charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
