Saints OT Brown charged with battery

MANDEVILLE, La. (June 23, 2006) -- New Orleans Saints offensive tackle Jammal Brown was free on bond following his arrest on a domestic abuse complaint from his wife.

Brown was booked with domestic abuse battery after his wife placed a 911 call, said Capt. George Bonnett, a spokesman for the St. Tammany Parish sheriff. When officers responded, Brown was not at home, but returned before officers left, Bonnett said.

"I can certainly say it was a physical altercation," Bonnett said. "We know they had a disagreement that escalated into a physical disagreement."

Although Bonnett would not disclose what injuries Brown's wife sustained, he said she was not hospitalized. Brown was arrested and posted a $5,000 bond on the misdemeanor charge, Bonnett said.

"We're aware of the situation and our security department is investigating it," Saints spokesman Greg Bensel said. "Until that has been concluded, we have no further comment."
