HOUSTON (AP) -St. Louis Rams offensive lineman Claude Terrell was charged Tuesday with assaulting his wife at a suburban Houston hotel.
Police said they found a woman with ``obvious signs of physical injury'' after responding to a disturbance at a hotel. The woman, who said she was Terrell's wife, told police he had assaulted her.
Terrell was located at another nearby hotel, where he was arrested and charged with assault-family violence, a class A misdemeanor, police said.
The 6-foot-2, 330-pound Terrell appeared in six games with three starts for the winless Rams this season.
Terrell was already on probation from a 2006 charge of assault causing bodily injury to a family member, according to court records. He was given a $1,000 fine and two years probation for that charge in February.
The 25-year-old Terrell was taken in the fourth round of the 2005 draft by the Rams out of New Mexico. He started 10 games as a rookie but missed all of last season with a wrist injury.
