Patriots wide receiver Terry Glenn, 26, is free on $1,000 bail today after being arrested Tuesday night and charged with assault and battery and intimidating a witness.
Glenn was arraigned in Wrentham (Mass.) District Court Wednesday morning and pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Walpole police received a complaint via telephone at 9:26 p.m. Tuesday and responded to Glenn's Walpole home where the sixth-year wide receiver was arrested and charged with assualting the mother of his child 5-year-old child.
He was released Tuesday night after making bail and was issued a no-abuse order at his arraignment that carries with it a possible 60-day detainment period if violated. A pretrial conference is set for July 17.
According to reports, Glenn's agent, Jim Gould, said no one was hit Tuesday night and the child was not involved.
If found guilty of the charges, Glenn could be subject to punishment through the NFL's violent crime policy.
Glenn was the seventh overall pick in the 1996 draft out of Ohio State and set a rookie record with 90 receptions that year. Last year, he was second on the Patriots in receptions with 79 for 964 yards and six touchdowns. He recently signed a contract extension through the 2007 season.
