 PITTSBURGH (AP) -The Pittsburgh Steelers released wide receiver Cedrick Wilson on Thursday, hours after he was charged with assaulting his estranged girlfriend at a suburban restaurant.
``We're extremely disappointed with this incident,'' team chairman Dan Rooney told reporters. ``The Steelers do not condone violence of any kind, especially against women.''
Police in Pine Township charged Wilson, 29, after he allegedly pushed Lindsey Paulat and then punched her in the face on Wednesday night.
Wilson entered the Patron Mexican Grill shortly before 8 p.m. and saw Paulat sitting at the bar, according to a criminal complaint filed by Northern Regional Police.
Paulat told police Wilson pushed her on the shoulder and, when she turned around, punched her in the left side of her face before leaving the eatery promptly, according to the complaint. There was redness and swelling on Paulat's left cheek, and witnesses told officers what happened, police said.
Officers later found Wilson as he was leaving his home in his car, police said. He was arraigned around 4 a.m. Thursday on charges of simple assault, harassment and disorderly conduct and freed on $10,000 bail.
Wilson, a backup receiver, is the second Steelers player arrested this month on charges that he assaulted a woman.
Linebacker James Harrison, voted the Steelers' MVP by his teammates last season, was charged with simple assault and criminal mischief for allegedly hitting his girlfriend on March 8. He faces a preliminary hearing April 3.
Harrison remains with the team. Team spokesman Dave Lockett said the Steelers viewed Harrison's situation differently than Wilson's, but would not say why.
In January, Wilson and Paulat got into a fight that led police to charge her with firing two gunshots after Wilson left his suburban town house. Paulat, who is also the mother of Wilson's 1-year-old daughter, Anya, is awaiting trial in that case.
Wilson's attorney, Paul Goltz of Pittsburgh, and his agent, Tom Condon, did not immediately return calls for comment Thursday.
Wilson, who played at Tennessee, signed with the Steelers as a free agent out of San Francisco in March 2005. He caught 81 passes for 1,162 yards and two touchdowns in three seasons with the Steelers. For his career, he has 178 catches for 2,375 yards and eight TDs.
