Warren Sapp

Arrested for

Domestic Battery

2/6/2010 8:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


0206_warren_sapp_mugFormer NFL star Warren Sapp was arrested by Miami Beach police this afternoon and charged with misdemeanor domestic battery stemming from an allegedly violent confrontation with his girlfriend.

According to the Miami Beach Police Department, Sapp is accused of attacking his girlfriend of two years at around 5:00 AM Saturday at the Shore Club Hotel.

According to the arrest report, the alleged victim had "a swollen right knee and bruises on the back of her neck."

She claims Sapp allowed her to sleep in his hotel room -- then came into the room early in the morning and pulled her out of bed. The alleged victim says they began arguing about guys she was hanging out with earlier Friday night.

Sapp's girlfriend told cops that during the argument Sapp "grabbed her and began to choke her." He eventually threw her out of the room, she claims.

When cops spoke to Sapp, he told them he had allowed the woman to stay in his room -- but later on decided he wanted her to leave because "he was expecting company." He told police he was trying to help her and she fell.

Sapp is in Miami for the Super Bowl and serves as an analyst for the NFL Network and on Showtime's "Inside the NFL."

The NFL Network released a statement saying they were aware of the incident and that Sapp will not appear on the NFL Network until they review the matter.

Sapp is scheduled to co-host an event at BED Miami tonight. They tell us they haven't heard about the incident and, as of now, everything is still a go. For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!

@ Kat, the first thing that everyone should learn is not to hit anyone.Women should stop believing that a man will not hit them, because it is not true. Too many women believe this farce which is why they hit men, destroy their belongings, & are disrespectful with their mouths. I'm not saying that this excuses men for beating women, I'm just saying that you get what you ask for.

Warren is also the player who lower the boom via a cheap shot on an unsuspecting player a few years agon who was never the same player.
Karma Warren, Karma!

Now for the incident. You know what, if Elin go go gangster upside Tiger's head with a 9 iron and get away with it, then why is this even an incident.
You bring your g/f to the SuperBowl and she gets drunk and starts flirting with every good looking in shape guy around the backstage area, she deserved to be throw out of the hotel room.

He didn't hurt her, he just wans't in the mood for apologies.
Ladies sometimes it is best for you to just leave too.

Bruised knee is from being on them with some other guys all night. Get my drift?

Same with the back of the neck bruise, from all the guys guiding her head to the perfect place.

Star whores the lot of them.

Once white trash always WT    

Warren sapp has awlwaaaaaaaays been an ahole. He can put on a front but he's a clown savage underneath. At the end of his playing career he had an incident with a white ref who he called racial names at and he was fined and it was washed under the table and never made a big deal about. If the ref had called him the N word he would have been banned for life , had to kiss Al Sharpton's behind and put in jail. Good for Sapp the garbage that he is. He can go play with Irvin in jail, another fine rep for the NFL!

My favorite part of this story is that he wanted his GIRLFRIEND to leave the room -- because "he was expecting company."

He had a booty call on the way. Too funny. I'm sure he's another "star" full of STD's.

Another THUG who doesn't think rule pertain to him. He pretends to be a man. Men that slap around women aren't men, they are cowards.

My child played soccer with Sapp's daughter. We went to the Sapp house for an "end-of-the-season" party & he was a total jerk! His wife was very pleasant, as well as his daughter. His son was a bit of a stinker though. He was hitting on some teenage girls & he was only about 7 years old! Warren distanced himself from all of the other parents and kids. He never even went to any of his daughter's games.

@ #65 devildowninga

umm what does what he did as a teenager have anything to do with his credibility and what kind of person he is? I am sure you are the same person you were when you were in high school. Everyone grows up different, so its not what you do as a kid but your actions as an adult. I am not defending Sapp for hitting a woman but from all we have soon he is a good guy, funny man, and great HOF worthy football player. We don't know what happened so let's not hide behind the internet to bash the living hell out of a guy who besides a few incidents has brought much entertainment to the sports industry.
