GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Green Bay Packers running back Ahman Green was charged Tuesday with disorderly conduct after an altercation with his wife, who made a 911 call for help.

Green was arrested at his home after the incident last month. The charge was filed Tuesday in Brown County Circuit Court.

District Attorney John Zakowski said Monday that Green would be charged, but hadn't said what the charge would be. He said Green is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday.

Officers arrested Green on the evening of April 25 after getting the 911 call from his home. A woman's voice could be heard saying "help me" before the line went dead.

The Brown County Sheriff's Department reported that Green's wife, Heather, felt threatened when she and her husband were arguing. Officers said Green became agitated and resisted arrest before an officer drew a Taser stun gun.

Green, released after posting $150 bond, filed for divorce April 28.
