Green Bay Packer Erik Walden

Erik Walden mugshot
Just hours after his team was victorious on Thanksgiving day, Green Bay Packers linebacker Erik Walden was arrested on suspicion of felony domestic violence against his live-in girlfriend.

According to police, the incident occurred around 2:30 AM and cops were called a few hours later. Cops say the woman was treated at a local hospital for a cut and a bump on her head.

Walden was arrested and booked at around 8:00 AM -- but because courts are closed for the holiday weekend, Walden will remain in the Brown County Jail until Monday morning.

A rep for the Packers released a statement saying, "The Packers organization is aware of the situation involving Erik Walden. We are in the process of gathering more information and will refrain from making any further comment."

In order to be a felony DV, he would have had to have choked her. They make it sound so plain and not so bad... "treated for a cut and a bump."
