Yet another NFL player is dealing with repercussions from a domestic abuse incident, the fourth such case to come to light this week. Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer was reportedly arrested for domestic violence on Wednesday, according to a report from 3TV anchor Tyler Baldwin. Dwyer was questioned by Phoenix police about an incident that occurred between he and his wife "a while ago." His wife kept "the records of her injuries" from that unspecified time.
According to CBS News, Dwyer was charged with aggravated assault and preventing someone from calling 911.
This comes after Baltimore's Ray Rice was terminated for punching his wife in a February incident, Adrian Peterson was indicted on child abuse charges, and Greg Hardy was deactivated due to a domestic violence conviction from this summer.
Dwyer is number two on the Cardinals depth chart. It's his first year in Arizona after spending four years on the Pittsburgh Steelers. He's had 16 carries in the first two games of this season.
