It’s been a bad couple of days in South Florida for a couple of former University of Miami players.
On Thursday, Michael Irvin was sued for rape. On Saturday, Warren Sapp is being questioned in connection with a domestic violence case, according to Omar Kelly and Brian Haas of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
“He’s being questioned in reference to a domestic battery,” Miami Beach police spokesman Juan Sanchez told the Sun-Sentinel. “No one has been arrested yet.”
I bumped into Sal Paolantonio a couple of minutes ago, and he said he’s reporting that NFL Network has pulled Sapp off the air, at least for now. NFLN has decided to keep Irvin on the air.
Irvin currently is appearing on NFL Network as part of the Hall of Fame announcement show.
UPDATE: NFL Network has confirmed that Sapp has been taken off the air, for now. “In light of these circumstances, Warren Sapp will not appear on NFL Network while we review the matter,” the statement reads, per CBS4.com.
