GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay Packers outside linebacker Erik Walden spent the weekend in jail and could make an appearance in Brown County Circuit Court Monday.
Walden was arrested Friday on suspicion of felony domestic violence/substantial battery. He's accused of assaulting his girlfriend at their apartment near Green Bay. Because of the Thanksgiving holiday, court was closed for the weekend and Walden stayed in jail.
Authorities say Walden's girlfriend called police early Friday and was treated for injuries at St. Vincent Hospital in Green Bay.
The 26-year-old Walden started all 11 games this season and played in the team's 27-15 Thanksgiving Day victory over the Lions. The team flew back from Detroit after the game and players were home by Thursday evening.
