From the Green Bay Press Gazette:
Green Bay Packers linebacker Erik Walden was arrested Friday morning for allegedly assaulting his live-in girlfriend, who required medical treatment in the incident.
Brown County Court was closed Friday for the holiday and Walden will remain in jail on suspicion of felony domestic violence-substantial battery until at least Monday.
The incident occurred about 2:30 a.m. at an apartment complex, 1981 Scheuring Road unit No. 6, Hobart-Lawrence police Chief Randy Bani said. The woman later called authorities about 6:10 a.m.
Bani said before the woman called police, she was treated for a cut and bump on her head, along with an injured right hand, at St. Vincent Hospital in Green Bay. Walden, 26, was later booked into the Brown County Jail at 8 a.m.
“The officer felt that were was enough information that was given by the victim that the male was arrested,” Bani said.
The Packers said the organization is aware of the situation involving Walden and is in the process of gathering more information. The organization declined further comment.
