Former Carolina Panthers linebacker Mark Fields was arrested on Sunday for allegedly beating and choking the mother of Fields’ six-year-old child, according to police documents obtained by TMZ.
Fields was charged with aggravated assault, endangerment, disorderly conduct, and
interfering with an educational institution. Witnesses say Fields confronted the woman outside a childcare facility. Fields said the woman tried to take his child from him.
The cops say that the mother and child were treated by paramedics for mild injuries. Fields has since been released from prison.
Fields was drafted by the Saints in 1995, playing six years with them. He finished his career in Carolina, making his second Pro Bowl in his final season of 2004.
