 PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Former Eagle Hugh Douglas has been arrested.

Eyewitness News reports, police in Connecticut arrested Douglas after a woman claimed he attacked her in a hotel room.

According to court documents, Douglas allegedly grabbed the woman by the neck and slammed her into a wall several times. Douglas reportedly told police the woman was hurt during rough sex.
