After further investigation, Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Erik Walden will be charged with a misdemeanor disorderly conduct after a domestic dispute with his live-in girlfriend. He pleaded not guilty and will return to court Dec. 27.
If convicted, Walden faces up to 90 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.
Heading into Wednesday's second hearing, the main question seemed to be whether or not Walden was defending himself in the dispute. His girlfriend, who required four stitches in her forehead and injured her thumb, had told authorities after the fact that she had hit Walden first and he was defending himself.

We also obtained a copy of the 9-1-1 tape. She had gone to the police department. She actually called 9-1-1 and wanted to report a domestic violence incident.
