The man suspected of shooting former NFL quarterback Anthony Wright has been arrested.

According to WCNC in Charlotte, William Hooker Jr. has been charged with attempted first-degree murder and possession of a firearm by a felon.

Police claim that Hooker and Wright, who is dating Hooker’s ex-girlfriend, got into an argument, leading to the shooting. Released on $150,000 bond, Hooker will make his first court appearance on July 8.

Wright played for the Steelers, Cowboys, Ravens, Bengals, and Giants in a career that spanned 1999 through 2007. He started 19 games (five for the Cowboys and 14 for the Ravens), and he won a Super Bowl ring in 2007, as one of the backups to Eli Manning, along with the late Jared Lorenzen.
