EVERETT, Wash. (AP) -Former NFL defensive tackle Chad Eaton was arrested for investigation of domestic violence.
Eaton was arrested in Monroe, booked into jail in this city north of Seattle on Saturday and released Sunday on $2,500 bail, according to Snohomish County Jail records.
Additional details about the incident were not immediately available.
Rebecca Hover, a spokeswoman with the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office, refused to provide a copy of the police report, saying she did not know if the investigation had been completed.
The 35-year-old Eaton spent five seasons with the New England Patriots, three with the Seattle Seahawks and one with the Dallas Cowboys before retiring after the 2004 season. He played in college at Washington State University.
Last year, Eaton's wife, Tina, was arrested at the couple's home in Redmond, an east Seattle suburb, after a fight that left her husband with a bloody nose. The 5-foot-4, 130-pound woman told sheriff's deputies she punched her 6-foot-5, 300-pound husband because she suspected he had cheated on her, court documents said.
Charges were not filed against Tina Eaton because her husband didn't want the case pursued.
