BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) -Oakland Raiders cornerback Fabian Washington was released on bond after being arrested at the Florida home he shares with his girlfriend and charged with domestic battery.
The Manatee County sheriff's department said Washington, 24, was arrested late Tuesday following what the girlfriend described as an argument that turned physical. The athlete was freed Wednesday after posting $2,000 bail.
According to a police report, Washington said he and his girlfriend were arguing about the former first-round draft pick ``hanging out with other girls.'' Washington told a sheriff's deputy that the argument did not turn physical.
The woman, however, said Washington grabbed her from behind and ``backpedaled'' her away from the couple's baby. The deputy said he observed ``slight red marks'' on the victim's neck and that Washington was arrested.
Washington, a one-time star at Bradenton Bayshore High School and the University of Nebraska, was selected by Oakland in the 2005 draft. He has five career interceptions in three NFL seasons.
A telephone message seeking comment from the Raiders was not immediately returned.
