    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. โ€” Former football star Warren Sapp was arrested Saturday following an alleged domestic violence incident at a Miami Beach hotel, police said.

    Sapp was charged with one count of misdemeanor domestic battery and is expected to appear before a Miami-Dade County judge Sunday, Miami Beach police spokesman Juan Sanchez said.

    Shortly after officials confirmed the charge, the NFL Network, for which Sapp is an analyst, spokesman Dennis Johnson said in an e-mail to The Associated Press that Sapp wouldn't be part of Super Bowl coverage this weekend.

    "We have been made aware of the arrest of Warren Sapp by the Miami Beach Police Department," a network statement said. "In light of these circumstances, Warren Sapp will not appear on NFL Network while we review the matter."

    The domestic violence allegation was reported around noon Saturday and detectives interviewed Sapp later that day, Sanchez said. The incident occurred early Saturday morning at the Shore Club hotel, according to a police news release.

    A telephone message left for Sapp's attorney was not immediately returned, nor was an e-mail.

    Sanchez said Sapp was expected to be transferred to Miami-Dade County jail Saturday.

    Sapp, a former defensive tackle, played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Oakland Raiders during his NFL career. He was also once a contestant on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars."

    Sapp was in South Florida as part of the NFL Network's coverage of Sunday's Super Bowl between the New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts.

    I wonder if he told her, "Put on a jersey, put on a jersey!"

    I've never liked Sapp.

    Women have too many rights. They can simply say you hit her and you can go to jail until the judge sees you the next morning.

    I'll wait until the details are out

    Sapp released from jail

    Former NFL star Warren Sapp was released from jail Sunday on $1,500 bond, a day after being arrested for allegedly choking a woman in his hotel room.

    Sapp was released at about 11 a.m. Sunday โ€” a time the NFL Network analyst would have been helping with Super Bowl coverage.

    The network has pulled Sapp off the air until it investigates the matter.

    Police arrested Sapp on Saturday on one charge of misdemeanor domestic battery. An arrest affidavit says the incident happened around 5 a.m. Saturday in the former defensive tackle's hotel room at the Shore Club on Miami Beach.

    Sapp's attorney said the former player is taking the matter seriously and will cooperate with authorities.

    "He sincerely apologizes to the NFL family and fans for taking away any distraction from today's big game," Christopher Lyons said. "We ask that everyone reserve judgment on the matter until all the facts come out in a court of law."

    The woman said she had been dating Sapp about two years. She told officers the two were partying with a large group of friends when she got tired and went to lay down.

    Sapp entered hours later, pulled her out of bed and tried to get her out of the room, according to the complaint. The complaint says he yelled at the woman about men she had been hanging out with and men listed in her cell phone.

    The woman told police Sapp choked her, threw her down on a couch, then picked her up by her shirt and neck and threw her down again โ€” injuring her leg.

    The victim had a swollen knee and bruises on her neck, the affidavit says. She was taken to the hospital.

    Sapp told investigators he let the woman stay in his room but asked her to leave a few hours later because he was expecting company. He told police the woman fell on her leg when he tried to help her get off a couch.

    Sapp played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Oakland Raiders during a 13-year NFL career. He also was once a contestant on "Dancing with the Stars."
