Warren Sapp charged with domestic battery
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. -- Former NFL star Warren Sapp has been charged with domestic battery in South Florida, and the analyst will not be part of the NFL Network's Super Bowl coverage on Sunday.
NFL Network spokesman Dennis Johnson said the incident is being reviewed.
According to a police news release, Sapp has been charged with one count of misdemeanor domestic battery. The charge stems from an incident early Saturday morning at a South Beach hotel. An arrest affidavit was not immediately available.
Miami Beach Police spokesman Juan Sanchez says the 37-year-old Sapp was brought in for questioning Saturday afternoon.
The former defensive tackle played for the University of Miami, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Oakland Raiders. Sapp is currently an NFL Network analyst.
Besides the NFL Network, which is owned by the league, Sapp works as a football analyst for Showtime's "Inside the NFL" show.
