1:34 PM PT -- TMZ Sports has learned ... the woman involved in the incident is Keyshawn's girlfriend of 7 years. 

Sources tell us ... Keyshawn is adamant he never physically struck the woman -- but acknowledges grabbing her phone and smashing it on the ground. 

But it seems the two are working things out -- because moments ago, TMZ Sports shot footage of the two out TOGETHER at an AT&T store in L.A., presumably buying a new cell phone. 

FYI -- sources connected to the situation tell us Key's GF was not the person who called police -- but rather another person who was there at the time and became concerned during the argument.

Keyshawn Johnson has been arrested for domestic violence ... TMZ Sports has learned.

The former NFL star wide receiver was busted in Calabasas, CA early Monday morning.

According to law enforcement ... Keyshawn was involved in a fight with his girlfriend when things allegedly got physical.  Sources say he smashed her phone, causing a gash to her hand.

Our sources say the two had an up-and-down relationship and were arguing over marriage.

Johnson was formally arrested for misdemeanor domestic battery and booked. 

Bail was set at 20K.  Keyshawn made bail and is now out.

Interestingly ... Johnson was a loud complainer when Justin Bieber lived in his neighborhood ... once almost coming to blows with the singer's bodyguards.

Couldn't have happened to/by a more arrogant disgusting person.
Let's hear you run your big mouth now Keyshawn. You're essentially a woman-threatener-frightener at minimum. And if I had to place a bet, I'm sure you're much worse than what we know about you. KJ is one of the most arrogant person on this planet - I hope he goes down in a bottomless pit for his latest 'run in'.

I've been to that AT&T store is in Woodland Hills.

Anyways, MeShawn seemed to always be crying and bitching, like when he was on the Jets with Wayne Chrebet. Just give him the damn ball.

The Female Nazis have made the nutless wonders make domestic violence laws that are just plain stupid! You should never be arrested for arguing with your girlfriend/wife if you do not get physical with her. Now, the cops are, by law, supposed to arrest you for hurting her feelings...or so it seems!
