Former Packers Running Back Ahman Green Arrested on Suspicion of Child Abuse
UPDATE: Former Packers RB Ahman Green Allegedly Punched Daughter Over Dirty Dishes
It was reported earlier on Monday that former Green Bay Packers running back Ahman Green got himself arrested on suspicion of child abuse.
“The Brown County Sheriff’s Dept. confirms 40-year-old Green was booked early Monday morning for an alleged incident on Sunday evening.
Green has been booked for felony child abuse — intentionally causing harm/cruelty toward a child. The charge carries a maximum of 6 years in prison if convicted.
A rep for the Sheriff’s Dept. tells TMZ Sports … “We had contact with Mr. Green on Sunday June 25th at 11:30 p.m. He was arrested for physical abuse of a child in a family related incident.”
“The referral has been made to the Brown County District Attorney’s Office and any additional requests will need to be made to them as we cannot comment on pending cases.”
Hours later, TMZ Sports got the dirty details on exactly what happened and it involved Green punching his own 15-year-old daughter in the face.
“Ahman Green’s 15-yr.-old daughter told police her dad punched her in the face after an argument over doing the dishes — but Green says that’s not the whole truth … this according to the criminal complaint obtained by TMZ Sports.
According to the complaint, Ahman’s daughter says the 2 had been arguing all day long about chores — she did not want to wash the dishes — and tension mounted between her and Ahman.
Things came to a head, according to Green’s daughter, when the ex-NFL star grabbed her, threw her to the ground and up against the kitchen cabinets … before punching her in the face.
When cops arrived, officers noticed her left eye was “swollen, slightly black and blue, and had 2 minor scratches.”
But Ahman tells a different story — sorta.
According to the report, Ahman admits they were arguing, and things got physical. But insists he did not punch her. Instead he says he “slapped her upside the head” — and her glasses caused the damage to her face.
He also admits he pushed her during the argument.”
Ahman claims he was merely physically disciplining his child — not abusing her.
