GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Green Bay Packers running back Ahman Green filed for divorce Thursday, only days after being arrested following a 911 hang-up call about a disturbance at his home.

Attorney Bruce Peckerman, who represented Green in a previous divorce, confirmed to The Associated Press the filing had been made in Brown County Circuit Court. He declined further comment without consulting his client.

Green was arrested Monday night when deputies responded to the call from his home. Green, cited for disorderly conduct, posted $150 bond and was released. A court hearing was scheduled for May 11.

A police report released Thursday said a woman was heard yelling "help me" before the line went dead, and when officers arrived, they found a woman sitting in a vehicle, crying.

Officers said Green allowed them in the house and admitted a disturbance had taken place, but said it was a husband-wife argument. He also admitted he hung up the phone because he thought the call had not been completed, the report said.

Green became agitated and asked officers to leave so that he could rest for the next day's mini-camp practice. Told he was under arrest, Green refused to put his hands behind his back and was threatened with a charge of resisting arrest, the report said. One officer pulled out his taser "stun gun," pointing it at the ground.

Green then moved his hands behind his back.

The woman, identified by Green as his wife, Heather, took her 4-year-old son and left.

She told officers that during a discussion, her husband became upset and told her to get out, punching the bed with his fist and yelling into her face. She said she went to her son's room and Green hit the door with his hand.

At that point, she said, she called 911, only to have Green hang up the phone.

No one was injured in the incident.
