Cardinals cheerleader arrested after fight with boyfriend

The “days without an arrest” meter had been creeping toward the all-time record of 34.  And with players in camp, the likelihood of an off-field incident was reduced.

But every NFL employee falls under the umbrella, including cheerleaders.  According to, a Cardinals cheerleader was arrested last month for assaulting her boyfriend.

The victim had recorded the incident via his phone, and Megan Elizabeth Welter admitted that she did indeed hit and punch him.

She was arrested on July 20 for assault, disorderly conduct, and criminal damage.

Welter recently was the subject of news reports regarding her military service in Iraq.  Which likely resulted in someone connecting the dots and noticing that the same Megan Elizabeth Welter who gained publicity for chasing a 16-month tour of duty with an NFL cheerleading gig also had a somewhat more notorious moment roughly two weeks ago.

    Are you sure there wasn’t an “ugly stick” involved in the confrontation?

    Yep, that mug shot shows what you can do with makeup.

    I’d like to apologize to anyone I may have offended in my previous post.

    What a piece of garbage. But she will get a pass because she is female and not fat.

  14. jdubb84 says: Aug 3, 2013 1:16 PM

    So that’s what they look like with no make up on..

  15. jackericsson says: Aug 3, 2013 1:23 PM

    The dude needs to grow a pair.

  16. stairwayto7 says: Aug 3, 2013 1:26 PM

    You need to see the video of her smacking her boyfriend who recorded it on his phone! She was hammered and he cheated on her! She might be roommates with Jody Arieas!

    Matt Ryan is shocked…

    Women don’t kid when they say they’re putting their face on.

    Manti Teo’s girl friend was prettier…

    you can’t be serious about this falling under the days without an arrest calender are you? possibly one of your more stupid ideas ever and that is saying allot. we don’t come here for news about cheerleaders or front office people. you may find that fascinating but I can assure you football fans do not care!

  20. seatownballers says: Aug 3, 2013 1:55 PM

    Jeez. After I saw the pic I was wondering what really happened. Maybe her face caught on fire, and the guy used a brick to put it out

  21. sketchydave says: Aug 3, 2013 1:56 PM

    I hope they throw the book at her. I’m not a typical macho man yet not a feminist but women often feel its ok just to hit a man because a man should never hit a woman. Which I agree with. But what about the poor dudes in abusive relationships that have had say a keurig coffee machine thrown at them (me) my best friends finger broken in a 360 motion etc. did they end up getting hit after? No but refer to the almighty Bill Burr, we should never ever hit a woman but don’t say there aren’t any times where if it was a dude they would if been laid out. Woman need to calm down! Relax. Instill respect again.

    I call BS. It doesn’t seem possible to keep tabs on every NFL employee if means every employee of every team. Just stick to players/coaches/management.

    Do the Cards look at their cheerleaders before they hire them?

  24. mcjon22 says: Aug 3, 2013 2:24 PM

    Come on guys, be honest, it’s always better when they fight a little

  25. thegreatgabbert says: Aug 3, 2013 2:35 PM

    Boyfriend woke up in the middle of the night to find her sinking her teeth into his neck.

    Yikes! I thought they had better looking women for cheerleaders?

  28. akboot says: Aug 3, 2013 2:59 PM

    Looks like she’s the one who got whooped on.

  29. billhicks666 says: Aug 3, 2013 3:23 PM

    Man! Imagine waking up next to that in the morning…yikes!

  30. ppc50 says: Aug 3, 2013 3:26 PM

    She looks so beat, mostly considering that she is an Arizona cheerleader. I would expected much better from that state.

  31. fcrwo01 says: Aug 3, 2013 3:42 PM

    Cheerleaders are not actual employees

  32. westcoastredbird says: Aug 3, 2013 3:58 PM

    She’s looking at a 4 game suspension.

  33. mackcarrington says: Aug 3, 2013 4:47 PM

    Is she a good witch? Or a bad witch? Either way, she IS a witch.

  34. 4getu says: Aug 3, 2013 6:10 PM

    Is there any football going on or is there only people around football being stupid. NFL=TMZ

  35. quidnuncq says: Aug 3, 2013 11:57 PM

    Army strong… SMH.

  36. awhite46 says: Aug 4, 2013 1:49 PM

    I say BS as well. Does anyone collecting a paycheck from an NFL team count? Cheerleaders are essentially gamedays employees. Paid $75 bucks per game or so. It should only be full time employees
