Green allegedly assaults woman
Tampa police say Green became violent Saturday during an argument at his home there with the mother of his two children. Police say Green slammed 30-year-old Teriyonal Ebony Flowers into a wall, then struck her right arm with an aluminum mop handle.
The former player at Central Florida then fled the house. He was arrested at Tampa International Airport before a flight he had planned to take 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.
Jail records did not show an attorney for Green. Messages left at his agent's office and cell phone were not immediately returned.
