Brandon Underwood arrested following domestic dispute
According to ESPN Milwaukee’s Jason Wilde, Green Bay Packers’ cornerback Brandon Underwood will appear in Brown County Court Wednesday morning “on a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge in connection with an alleged domestic abuse incident that occurred after the team’s June 16 Super Bowl ring ceremony.”
According to the report, Underwood’s estranged wife, Brandie Underwood, was dragged from a car and thrown to the ground in the driveway of the couple’s home following the ceremony. Underwood reportedly ripped a necklace and pendant given to the Packers’ player’s wives as part of the ceremony off her neck during the altercation.
Underwood was processed in at the Brown County Jail early on June 17 and posted $350 bail and released, according to Wilde.
The Packers have declined comment on the incident, but this is not Underwood’s first run-in with the law.
In June 2010, Underwood was investigated after two women accused him of sexually assaulting them at a Golf Resort where six other Packers were staying during a charity golf event. The Sauk County District Attorney’s office did not pursue charges against Underwood, who pleaded no contest to one count of prostitution-non-marital sexual intercourse and was fined $379.
