Sports Illustrated is reporting that former NFL fullback Corey McIntyre was arrested this week in south Florida for battery.
Police reports say that McIntyre, who played in all 16 games for the Buffalo Bills in each of the past three seasons, was allegedly taking a bath at his home in Port St. Lucie when he got into an argument with a woman over information she found on his cellphone.
According to the arrest affidavit, when the woman tried to throw his phone in the bath water, McIntyre told officers he attempted to get out of the tub and pulled the shower curtain, causing the rod to strike the woman.
He then reportedly chased after the woman and grabbed her shirt, ripping it as she was trying to leave the house, the affidavit states.
McIntyre was arrested early Wednesday morning and hit with a misdemeanor charge for the incident. He posted bail later that same day.
Corey’s battery charge comes just three days before he was scheduled for a celebrity softball game against the Saint Lucie County Sheriff and Fire Department.
WPTV notes that event — held to support a local firefighter who was seriously injured in a December arson — had been canceled and was not expected be rescheduled.
Event organizers could not be reached for comment Wednesday.
