    Arizona Cardinals player arrested on domestic violence allegations

    Arizona Cardinals backup running back Jonathan Dwyer was arrested in connection with domestic abuse allegations, Phoenix police said Wednesday night.

    The Cardinals deactivated Dwyer after news of the arrest, according to a news release from the team.

    CNN's calls to the office of Dwyer's agent, Adisa Bakari, weren't immediately returned.

    The announcement from the Phoenix Police Department said two incidents allegedly occurred on consecutive days in late July. They were reported last week.

    Detectives interviewed Dwyer and he "admitted to the incidents, however, denied any physical assaults," the police statement said.

    Police said he was booked on one count of aggravated assault causing a fracture, one count of aggravated assault involving a minor, two counts of criminal damage, one count of preventing the use of a phone in an emergency, and assault.

    The two victims were a 27-year-old woman and an 18-month-old child, police said.

    Dwyer is being held at the Maricopa County Jail.

    The Cardinals said they became aware of the allegations when contacted by police.

    Dwyer, 25, is the fourth NFL player to be in the headlines this week. Two other players, Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings and Greg Hardy of the Carolina Panthers, took paid leave from their teams to focus on their legal cases.

    Seriously, this is getting out of hand. I can't believe yet another player from the NFL is facing charges involving domestic abuse. It seems to me that players are really have some issues turning off the aggression when they are off the field.

    A culture of indifference can be toxic and it increasingly appears that the lack of gravity placed on the Ray Rice abuse case was symptomatic of a larger problem.

    Changes including at the Commissioner's level, far better screening of players prior to being signed, a possible prohibition on drafting/signing individuals who have been convicted of domestic abuse/sex crimes, severe penalties for abuse, among other measures may be needed to turn around the league's culture. At the same time, the majority of players who do not commit such abuses need to be more vocal against those responsible for such abuses. Players who abet such acts e.g., Captain Munnerlyn (Vikings teammate Captain Munnerlyn says treatment of Adrian Peterson 'unfair' - TwinCities.com) are also part of the problem.

    Much has been made of Erik Erikson's (Red State) piece yesterday on NFL domestic violence in contrast to ordinary folks' stats: No, the NFL Is Not a Hotbed of Wife and Child Beaters | RedState

    Can't say I'm shocked.

    This one sounds fishy. On the news they said this happened last July. Why did she wait two months to report it?

    Trying to compare those with high six-figure (or greater) incomes, most having some college education, to the general public is meaningless - perhaps a dose of common sense is in order. We should expect that those higher incomes and more education would be less prone to criminal activity or at he very least less likely too get caught doing it.

    Did you notice the Minnesota owner taking Peterson off the roster?
    He wasn't standing in front of the Radisson logo this time--no logos at all.

    Yer too intelligent not to realize the bottom line for owners is their bottom line.
    That IS reality--and it isn't alternative .
